When you read the news about destructive oil spills and devastating power outages, you might wonder what you can contribute that will make a difference. However, as the little guy or girl, all of us can do our part to lead a more eco-friendly lifestyle—like buying fewer plastic packaged goods, conserving energy, and reducing carbon emissions.
Here are ten small, but meaningful ways to help improve your environment…
1. Go Public With Transit
Sometimes it’s nice to give up the driver’s seat, especially if it reduces your carbon footprint and the gas emissions that promote poor air quality and breathing conditions like asthma. So do your part by taking the bus, train, subway, streetcar, or commute with the crew to work or school in the same car.
