Helping the climate

Five ways to help save the climate

Don’t be overwhelmed by the admittedly daunting task of curbing climate change. The Nature Conservancy offers a number of tips for small changes everyone can make that will help lower carbon emissions, including:

Walk or bike instead of driving a car, which saves one pound of carbon for every mile you travel.

Compact fluorescent light bulbs save 100 pounds of carbon over the life of the new bulb for each incandescent bulb replaced.

Keeping your vehicle’s tires fully inflated means better gas mileage and saves 300 pounds of CO2 for every 10,000 miles driven.
