Simple Ways to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

August 2016 was officially the warmest August on record since 1880!

Looking for ways to reduce your “carbon footprint?” Fortunately, there are simple ways that you can help the environment and reduce your impact at home.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint:

  • Change Your Driving Habits – Making a few small changes to your driving habits can make a 30% difference in MPG! Accelerate slowly, drive the speed limit, and anticipate steps ahead.
  • Carpool When Possible – Catch a ride with a friend or a co-worker next time you are heading to work or to an event.
  • Install a Programmable Thermostat – This simple home upgrade will help ensure that you aren’t wasting money and energy to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • Buy Locally – Support small businesses by shopping locally. You will save energy and put your money towards supporting your community.
  • Recycle – Reduce, reuse, and recycle what you can. Manufacturing new products produces about 2-8 lbs of CO2!
