Make the commitment to reduce your own carbon footprint. Together, we can signal to policymakers and businesses that consumers as a whole are ready to use energy more efficiently, to buy cleaner technologies, and use mass transit alternatives when the possibilities are available. Visit our Green Corner for sustainable lifestyle tips.
Become carbon-neutral, or off-set a portion of your carbon contributions. Visit our Endangered Islands Campaign for more information.
Be an environmentally-responsible consumer or investor. When shopping for a new product, review the Climate Counts Company Scorecard, which evaluates companies based on their efforts to address and mitigate negative environmental impact.
Make your next car a hybrid. Run on a combination of electricity and gasoline, hybrids are much more efficient vehicles than conventional cars or SUVs.
How green is your electricity? Calculate your personal emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants due to home or office electricity use by visiting the EPA’s Power Profiler. Read more on the site to find out how you can use electricity more efficiently and/or purchase renewable energy through your current utility company.
