basic steps to reduce climate change

Every little helps and so here are 8 tips to help reduce climate change.I hope you try them all to give the max but some or even one is better then nothing!

Light: replacing normal light bulbs with energy savers, saves 150 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.

Drive Less: walking, biking, sharing transport or plain public service help reduce gas consumption and a pound of carbon dioxide for eacg mile you don't drive!

Recycle: now we have recycle Tuesdays you have no real excuse except laziness! Recycling your household goods saves 2400 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.

Checking our tyres: when our tyres are properly inflated, we save gas and for each gallon of gas saved, 20 pounds of carbon dioxide do not happen.

Hot water: to heat up water takes a lot of energy, using cold water for our washes saves 500 pounds of carbon dioxide.

Avoiding a lot of package: when buying stuff, prevent waste from being created and choose consciously. When buying products with few packaging, you are saving on money, reducing your garbage by 10% and carbon dioxide by 1200 pounds.

Plant a tree: we were meant to do this on the birth of Gregory but so far we haven't done it. To redeem ourselves, I will have to tell Dave to plant 3 one for each missed month! A single tree absorbs approx a ton of carbon dioxide in its lifetime...so it is essential to plant trees especially when there is a lot of treeloggers around. If you got nowhere to plant them, please remeber the 34u campaign going on in our country which is a good enough wat to help the environment and our island!

Electronic Devices: Simply turn off any eletronic device not in use and save thousands of pounds in carbon dioxide!

You can also stay informed on more thing by going to this site earth911.com but no fear I will update regularly on these issues! As Earth 911 say, together we can and do make every day Eath Day!!!
