You Can Do
Change light bulbs: Use bulbs that have the Energy Star label. Compact fluorescent
lightbulbs (CFLs) are more expensive than conventional incandescent bulbs, but
they last longer and they use less electricity. Be aware: CFLs contain mercury,
and therefore need special recycling.
Recycle: Deposit paper and plastics in recycling containers. Buy products
that are made from recylced materials.
Drive less: Use public transportation--at least part of the time--if possible.
Carpool for work or for errands. Perform multiple errands in one trip.
Telecommute: Convince your boss to allow you to perform part of your job from
your home. Your argument should focus on increased productivity, but less driving
to help the environment is an argument that's supported by an increasing number
of people around the world.
Turn off unused lights and electronics: Don't leave lights and appliances
on if you are not using them.
Talk about conservation: The more often you remind others about environmental
awareness, the more likely they'll make efforts to conserve.
