Small Changes, Big Impact

A self-initiated personal project focused on reducing your footprint.

Reducing our footprint.

Once I began learning more about the environment, climate change, and how all of our actions affect it, I started making some small changes. Over time, I began gathering facts and learning more about simple swaps I could make to reduce my footprint.

After exhausting my friends and family with recycling facts and tips they could implement in their own lives, I decided to create a lettered series sharing these learnings on Instagram. My goal is to show people just how easy it is to make these changes, and inspire them to share with others. Each fact I share is extensively researched, and the swaps I recommend are gathered from experts and other folks trying to go zero waste. Click through each lettered piece below to see the original post, along with tips related to each stat.

Each change compounds and anyone can make a difference. We all have the power to make a change and to influence others. As Jo Littler said, “what we collectively choose to buy and not to buy can change the course of this planet.”

I’ve created a PDF full of easy swaps you can make to reduce your footprint! Feel free to download and click through to the links, or print and check off swaps as you make them.
