The earth’s climate has changed throughout history, but this time is definitely different. Human activity is generating more carbon emissions than the earth has the ability to process. And the buildup of these emissions is causing worldwide temperatures to rise faster and higher than ever before. This issue will change our planet as we know it unless we take drastic action to reverse its effects.
The good news is that it’s not too late to take action. Scientists, engineers, and businesses are innovating constantly to reduce carbon emissions and decarbonize the earth. While this is a good first step, it won’t be enough to achieve net zero carbon emissions. Because of this, it is our job as consumers to measure our impact and start making changes in our consumption and lifestyle to reduce it.
Flora believes that everybody can drive the change. This is why we are empowering our customers to understand, measure, track and reduce their carbon footprint.
We plan to do everything in our power to make conscious consumption an everyday practice – providing people with the information, resources, and products they need to calculate and meaningfully reduce their carbon footprint and the motivation to empower more sustainable lifestyles. We are championing a shift towards greater specificity when it comes to sustainability — offering detailed, transparent, and measurable steps to reduce emissions, improve peoples lives, and make the world a better place.
