Reduce CO2 Footprint
Solar projects are just one way to reduce the amount of CO2 in the air. Check out the tips below for more ways you can make an impact by reducing your carbon footprint.
It’s easy to lower your carbon footprint:
Switch to LED or CFL lights, which use less energy than traditional lights. Turn them off when you’re not in the room – this will reduce the amount of CO2 that’s emitted from the lights you have. PLUS: Saves on electricity bills.
Take public transportation, walk or bike whenever you can instead of driving – this will reduce the amount of carbon that is emitted from using your car. PLUS: Saves gas money.
Eat less meat, especially red meat (beef, lamb & pork). The carbon impact of red meat is higher than poultry or grain. PLUS: It’s healthier.
Raise your thermometer a few degrees in the summer and lower it a few degrees in the winter – this will reduce the amount of carbon that’s emitted from heating and cooling your home. PLUS: It saves you on energy bills.

Support clean and efficient energy, transportation, and urban design initiatives at the local, state, and national level. Our cities and transportation infrastructure must be built to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and protect the environment. People must stand up to “business as usual” governments and demand they invest in renewable energy, public transportation, and sustainable cities. PLUS: Clean and well-designed cities are more fun to live in.
