The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success. While vast, the world is a small place. As we all share this world, we can all play a major part in making it better. It’s the only world we have, and there are numerous ways we can do that. The following contributed post is entitled, So You Want To Minimize Your Footprint?

In this day and age, we all know enough of what goes on in the world to care about being more responsible. You just cannot avoid it. The news is very much reporting of all of what goes on, and sustainability is finally on the rise. However, there are just too many people that then go on to assume they just cannot contribute. That their small efforts don’t make a difference. But they do. And so, let’s take a look at what you can do to minimize your footprint.
This first one is an easy one. Because it’s safe to say that we’re all wasting far too much in the world right now. We throw things away like it’s nobody’s business, and it’s time to change that. But how? If you can only consume what you need, and look to reduce your consumption altogether, it can really help. The less that you send to landfill, the better. So really try to recycle what you can.

But then also, you might want to physically get as involved as you can. When this is the case, you may find that helping out in community projects, or leading the way with big local initiates really helps you. So don’t be afraid to be a part of something bigger.
Also, you need to get smart about the recourses that you’re using. Use less, and know what you’re using. The infographic below can help you here.
