What We Can Do to Help [blog 9]

In order to help our environment, we have to make aware to others on what each and everyone can do can help. Such as small changes in our homes and yards, workplace,  on the road, and at school.

The EPA recommends that homes should change their light bulbs often and change them to energy efficient light bulbs. Another way is to be smart on when to turn on the AC and the heat. By being smart on when to turn on one of these things, it can not only help the environment but can run down the cost of your energy bill. Keeping in mind of using your AC and heat, making sure your home is properly insulated. Another way to be efficient is to use water efficiently. It takes a lot of energy to pump, treat, and heat water, so using water efficiently will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And of course the common sense one, reduce, reuse, recycle.

What we can do on the road is be smart about our vehicle and what we put in it. Buying a fuel efficient vehicle can help the environment an help out your wallet too. Maintenance and your tires can actually help out as well. Keeping a well-maintained care produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions and is safer for the environment and you. And checking your tire pressure often can help. Under inflated tires increase tire wear, uses more fuel, and leads to higher greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions.

  1. Nice to read from someone who says do something, instead of someone who says lets get someone else to do something. This attitude will help you succeed in life.
