Poll question: Your Sunday Climate Action Commitment.

In our latest exploration of everyday climate action, we conducted a poll in LinkedIn to uncover what our community thinks are the most impactful daily activities for reducing one’s carbon footprint. The results? Enlightening, with a surprising twist at the end.

Poll  Results?

Use less AC, washing mc, dryer 37%
Grow veggies/fruits at home 32%
Repair / reuse stuff 32%
Watch eco programs on TV 0%

With 41 votes tallied, it’s clear there’s a near tie among the top three choices, illustrating a collective inclination towards tangible, hands-on environmental actions. Yet, the complete absence of votes for eco TV programs prompts  reflection 

Broader fabric of real-world action

In weaving the tale of our poll, one can’t help but tip their hat to Bea Johnson and her clan in California. Imagine, if you will, managing to squeeze an entire year’s worth of household waste into a jar no bigger than a good-sized smoothie. It’s not just impressive; it’s a stark reminder of what’s possible when you decide that ‘enough is enough’ with waste.Bea’s family lives by a mantra that could very well be a modern-day spell for environmental preservation – refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot. They’re not just words; they’re a lifeline for a planet gasping under the weight of excess.

The Surprising Tie & The Astonishing Zero

It’s almost poetic, isn’t it? Three top actions are neck and neck, each championing a practical approach to sustainability. Yet, the humble television, with its endless channels of wisdom, sits alone and unloved in the corner. This dichotomy raises a question about our engagement with climate action. Is it that we prefer tangible actions over passive learning, or have we simply not found the right eco-show yet?

My Personal Pick?

As for my personal pick from the poll, it was #3 – Repair/reuse stuff. There’s something profoundly satisfying about giving life to old things, isn’t there? It’s like telling the world, “Hey, we’re not done here. This old thing and I, we’ve got more to offer.”

So, as we ponder over our poll results and marvel at the Johnsons’ zero-waste wizardry, let’s not forget the power of individual actions. Whether you’re a business tycoon looking to invest in the next big eco-friendly startup or a weekend gardener hoping to turn your balcony into a green haven, the message is clear: every little bit helps. And who knows? With enough of us on board, we might just make waste reduction the next big thing in casual conversation, right up there with the weather and last night’s game.
