    Refrigerants cause damage to the ozone layer and contribute to global warming, and while there have been some efforts to reduce the impact, a climate-friendly refrigerant is yet to be discovered

    If family plans ahead they might buy something that's expensive, but good for the environment, if they plan and save money, it will work well on both ends. :)

    Some of the food I eat needs a lot of room i.e meat. And the animals also need food, which takes up more room. Meaning that they need to cut down more trees to make room. I can try to become mostly a vegetarian but limit my meat consumption.
