The project have come to an end and we are so grateful for all of you that took your time reading this blog. We hope this blog helped you making some changes and that it have showed you that it's easy to make a change for the climate.
As a group we have now decreased our lifestyle to 12,5 globes from 16,2 globes and 38,1 ton carbon dioxide from 41,59 ton carbon dioxide. So this lifestyle change has made a great impact on the environment.
It has proved possible to get used to living more climate-smart for a short period of time, which we thought would be more difficult. Something we have had problems with was our eating habits, others with the transport because there is no access to public transport, which has contributed to taking the car anyway. Another dilemma we have found is to influence others to change their behavior to live more climate-smart. Some of us have difficulty making climate-smart choices naturally and must make more effort.
A simplicity we have experienced is that it is easy to find eco-labeled products and that makes it easier to make better environmental choices. It's also easier now to automatically buy good products and make good choices. Just because the stores have more options and labels that is easy to find.
In order for the climate-smart lifestyle to fall more naturally, we need to live like this for a longer time and get close relatives to change their lifestyle as well. One thought we have is that we continue to live climate-smart so we can spread our experiences to others. The vision we have is to hopefully inspire others to live more climate-smart one step at the time.
Good luck in continuing to live more climate-smart!
