Simple Ideas To Take Action at

If you are wondering what actions you can take to reduce your emissions of greenhouse gases, the website at has a great list of actions that you can take each day.

My favorites include:
  • Use Compact Fluorescent Bulbs - Replace 3 frequently used light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. Save 300 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $60 per year.
  • Use Recycled Paper - Make sure your printer paper is 100% post consumer recycled paper. Save 5 lbs. of carbon dioxide per ream of paper.
  • Buy Products Locally - Buy locally and reduce the amount of energy required to drive your products to your store.
  • Reduce Garbage - Buy products with less packaging and recycle paper, plastic and glass. Save 1,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide per year.
For more ideas, visit the Take Action! website. If we all choose just a couple of these actions, we can start to make measureable progress against global warming.
