1. Shopping

When buying appliances, lighting, or office equipment, look out for Energy Star products that are cost-effective and ultimately help reduce our carbon emissions.

2. Home

A home energy audit can help you identify ways to make your home more energy-efficient and show you where you are wasting energy.

3. Car Travel

 An average car produces about five tons of CO2 each year 

When you need to drive, avoid unnecessary braking and acceleration. Studies have shown that aggressive driving results in a 40% higher fuel consumption than consistent, calm driving.

4. Air Travel

Aviation is responsible for 12% of carbon emissions from all transports sources

Consider using a more sustainable means of transportation instead of flying, such as the train, or changing your travel destination to one that is more economically feasible.

5. Carbon Offsets

A carbon offset is money you can pay for a project that reduces greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere.

Carbon offsets help promote sustainable development and increase renewable energy use. This calculator estimates the number of carbon emissions your flight produces and how much money it will take to offset them.

We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world
