Going Green Counters Climate Change

Climate Change results from increases in greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide and methane, trapping heat that would otherwise escape the atmosphere.  You can reduce this build-up (and your carbon footprint) by being green!  Our checklist has many climate-friendly measures, such as:

·       Conserve energy with fluorescent lights and Energy Star equipment

·       Reduce waste at the landfill (and methane gas emissions) – recycle, compost, and buy products with recycled content.

·       Conserve water (and the energy to deliver it with low-flow toilets and drought tolerant plants.

·       Invest in renewable energy with renewable energy credits and solar panels.

·       Conserve fuel by taking public transit, your bike or a high MPG vehicle.
