Carbon Footprint and Sustainable Energy in Relation to The Bahamas

In recent years, our carbon footprint has negatively increased. It has been seen in the hotter temperatures and even in the terrible, highly impactable hurricane by the name of Dorian. It has also caused an increase in energy and effected climate change as well.

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide and can be caused by simply driving a car or using electricity.Sustainable energy is a form of energy that meet our today’s demand of energy without putting them in danger of getting expired or depleted and can be used repeatedly. Sustainable energy should be widely encouraged as it does not cause any harm to the environment and is available widely free of cost.

The global rise in temperatures is melting polar ice caps and glaciers leading to rising sea levels, worldwide climate change, destruction of animal and plant habitats and weather extremes, such as hurricanes and cyclones. This will turn out to be a global disaster particularly to countries at sea level like The Bahamas, where land area is reducing. Recently , headlines about the sea levels in the Bahamas has been rising tremendously.

In this Bahamas many large companies have started and founded ways to try and reduce our carbon footprint. Bahamas Waste has set the tone in the country when it comes to going green, by being the first company to offer cardboard recycling services. Cardboard is the one of the biggest waste products worldwide, and by recycling cardboard, The Bahamas can become a little bit greener.
