You could compost your shit, take baths in a river, drive a hybrid/electric car, be a vegan, reduce, reuse, recycle, etc but the moment you reproduce… your carbon footprint is already huge. Having children is one of the worst things you can do to the environment. Overpopulation is serious. One American child generates as much CO2 as 106 Haitian kids. A typical american baby goes through 3,800 disposable diapers in their first 2.5 years. American children make up 4 percent of the world’s population, but they consume more than 40 percent of the world’s toys. Where do those go after kids are done with them? in a landfill.
