Because of human-caused fossil fuel emissions, the globe is warming. As the COP26 summit approaches, the focus has moved to what we can do to reduce our negative environmental impact. So, how are people in the public eye in Wales reducing their carbon footprint in their private lives?

As the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales, Sophie Howe’s job is to encourage public bodies and politicians to think about the long-term effects of their decisions. She added that anyone could make a variety of alterations, including some she had done. She also noted making minor adjustments such as avoiding purchasing plastic bottles, refilling glass bottles, and removing her makeup with reusable pads. She also stated that owning an electric car or having kitchen cabinetry made of recycled tires are also possible.

Julie James, the Welsh Minister for Climate Change, has a better awareness of the importance of environmental protection. People might be surprised to find how old a lot of her clothes are and how many appliances she has around her house that have been repaired rather than replaced, according to Ms. James. Also, she added that “little improvements are necessary” and that “more effort can always be done.”
