Well, I guess, the one thing that I am doing to reduce my own carbon footprint. I am planting more trees in my garden. I have been always busy planting some plants in my garden. It can actually take in some amount of CO2 although I don't believe it would be much, at least my CO2 that I breath goes somewhere.
I guess if everyone started planting trees just even by random around places in the country and city, a decade from now or even twenty, the amount of CO2 would greatly reduce. I think the next thing is that, we should all slowly use more public transport assuming that public transport is good. Do more pooling with your peers when going to work or to some spots.

Educate the younger generation on the importances of having trees and plants in a country. Let them know why it is really important for plants to be in a country and what they could do to have a better future. Having seeds of knowledge like this embedded into those young minds would let them understand why it is important for each and every one of us to keep our trees and cut less.
One thing that singapore has done was giving stress to Indonesian companies for forest fires. This has reduce the haze.
