Everyone can do Today...

...and save money doing them:

Use efficient lighting: Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) use 70% less energy and last 10 times longer than standard bulbs.

Adjust your thermostat: Set your programmable thermostat two degrees warmer than usual in summer and two degrees cooler in winter—then watch your energy use drop.

Reduce phantom load: Home electronics draw 40% of the electricty they use while turned off—unplug chargers and home entertainment systems when not in use.

Conserve water in- and outdoors: Treating and pumping water takes a huge amount of electricity—saving water saves money and power too.

Plant a tree at home: Carefully chosen and planted trees soak up CO2 and shade your home for lower summer utility bills.

Drive less: Walk, ride a bike, carpool, take the bus, and combine trips when possible.

Keep your car in tune: A poorly tuned engine wastes 10 to 20% of its fuel; a clogged air filter risks a 10% increase in fuel consumption; and low tire pressure means another 5% drop in efficiency.

Reduce, reuse, recycle: Create less waste by reusing or recycling items.

Buy local: Most food is shipped more than 1,500 miles to get to your plate—locally grown food saves fuel and tastes better.

Talk: Raise awareness among your friends, family, and coworkers, and tell government leaders you want meaningful climate protection planning and policies now.
