  • Buy organic and local… this reduces the transportation process or even eliminates it, thus reducing carbon emissions
  • Pay attention to packaging… when out shopping, choose items with minimal packaging
  • Ditch bottled water… Bottled water has a huge carbon footprint, it's bottled at one location in small plastic bottles and shipped all over. Try buying a reusable water bottle or canteen for your water
  • Unplug it! Unplug appliances you don’t use frequently
  • Use Cold Water… at least in the washer, it takes less energy than heating up water
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
