REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Leaving your car at home twice a week can cut greenhouse gas emissions by 1,600 pounds per year. If you commute to work, ask if you can work from home at least some days, and you’ll reduce air pollution and traffic congestion – and save money. More information: More Information from the EPA
Be sensible! The Earth might seem like it has abundant water, but in fact only one percent of all water on the planet is available for humans. Buy fixtures and products that are water efficient – you can use less water to get the same job done just as well. When you go shopping, look for the WaterSense label to find water efficient products.
