  • Eat vegetarian food once a week: Meat, cheese and eggs have the highest carbon footprint. Fruit, vegetables, beans and nuts have much lower carbon footprints. If we eat vegetarian meal once a day in a week for a year, we’ll cut down carbon emissions equivalent to not driving our car for a month.
  • Fly with an E-ticket: flying with an e-ticket can save paper and will cut processing costs from 10$ to 1$
  • Change your light: when you use compact fluorescent lights instead of incandescent bulbs, you reduce electricity consumption by 75%.
  • Fix leaky pipes: fixing the leaks in your house promptly can save an average of 10000 gallons of water per year.
  • Dine in: when your meal doesn’t come in plastic bags or containers, you help to prevent over 260 species from ingesting plastic debris.
  • Recycle aluminum& glass: when you recycle, your glass and aluminum will be back on your shelves in just six weeks.
  • Rethink bottled water: using a refillable water bottle instead of plastic bottles saves about 3 liters of water for every liter you drink.
