Save Energy!

  • Conduct an energy audit of your home and workplace. Turn off unnecessary lights. Insulate well. Purchase energy-efficient appliances. Install compact fluorescent light bulbs.
  • Start an environmental training group in your community center, favorite club or religious home to encourage others to make their homes more energy efficient. You and the group could distribute healthy-environment materials from this web site and other sources, sponsor workshops and help install energy-saving materials in the homes of your friends, colleagues and other people who need assistance.
  • Drive less. Carpool or use mass transportation. This saves gas, reduces pollution and cuts down on traffic.
  • When you buy a car, select an energy-efficient model or a hybrid.
  • Recycle. It is especially important to recycle aluminum.
  • Advocate for community, city, state and national recycling programs if your area does not yet have them.
  • Support and encourage local energy utilities to promote energy efficiency and increase use of renewable energy. If your utility companies do not offer energy audits and discounts for energy-saving measures, encourage them to do so.
  • Support government policies and legislation that promote energy efficiency and renewable energy.
