Tips from World Wildlife Fund:

  1. Make the switch to clean energy. Most electric power providers now offer an optin to purchase power from renewable sources generated by wind, solar and biomass.
  2. Plant local species of trees.
  3. Don’t buy furniture or decking made of tropical hard wood (e.g. mahogany) unless it’s got the Forest Stewardship Council label.
  4. Avoid air fresheners and aother perfumed products. Use baking soda, cedar blocks or dried flowers. Or just open the windows.
  5. Buy organic cotton clothing, fruits and vegetables to reduce the use of toxic chemicals.
  6. Wrap your water heater in an insulating jacket. This could reduce emissions up to 1,000 pounds per year.
  7. Buy a car that gets 30 miles per gallon. This can reduce carbon dioxide by 2,500 pounds a year over a car that gets 10 mpg less.
