What we measure
Once emitted, carbon dioxide gets caught up in our atmosphere and prevents heat from escaping, leading to global warming and wreaking havoc on ecosystems across the planet. While CO2 isn’t the only greenhouse gas causing damage to our climate, it’s one of the most prevalent and therefore is often used to measure the effects of climate change in the long term.
Plastic is certainly not fantastic. It takes hundreds of years to break down and has so far caused untold damage to wildlife and natural ecosystems. It’s also made from fossil fuels, so using plastics ends up funding an industry which is creating huge harm to our planet. Even when plastic does break down it creates microplastics – tiny particles that are very difficult to get rid of.
Water is a vital resource used by most living creatures, so we must protect and preserve it. Some materials, especially crops like cotton, use up vast quantities of water, and some manufacturing processes can lead to water pollution. Making efficient use of our water is therefore vital if we’re to foster sustainable development, encourage less wasteful farming practices and shore up our planet’s ecosystems.
