Making Climate-Friendly Choices
Got a minute?
- Walk: You keep carbon dioxide out of the air whenever you walk, bike, carpool, or take the bus instead of driving.
- Screw in a new light bulb: yesterday's incandescent light bulbs produced more heat than light. Save money by replacing them with new energy-saving devices.
- Program your thermostat: Save money and reduce carbon dioxide pollution by programming your thermostat to heat and cool your home at the right temperature and time.
Got a day?
- Plant shade trees: planting trees in the right spots around your home can lower your air conditioning costs and remove tons of carbon from the atmosphere.
- Eat local: Choose foods produced close to where you live. Not only will they usually taste fresher, they also won't require as much fossil fuel for transport.
- Get involved: Look for volunteer opportunities to help people and the environment respond to climate change in positive ways.
- Reduce, reuse, recycle: practicing the "3 Rs" shrinks your carbon footprint, gives you maximum product benefits and ensures you generate the minimum amount of waste.
