What Can We Do?

As humans, we owe a lot to our planet. There are many aspects of our society that we take for granted. Without many of the resources our planet provides us with, we will be unable to do certain things that have become part of our daily lives. Quite often, people refuse to do anything to help the environment because they do not know how easily they can make an impact. There are some simple things that we can do to give back to our planet.

Kids Holding A Globe

1. Speak up

Talk to your friends and family about the impact of climate change and what you need to do to help. By voicing your concerns—via social media or, better yet, directly to your elected officials—you send a message that you care about the warming world.

Plate of Foods

2. Eat less meat and make the most of your food

The less food you waste, the more you cut down on energy consumption. Livestock products are among the most resource-intensive to produce, eating meat-free meals can make a big difference, too.

3. Buy Better Bulbs

LED light bulbs use up to 80% less energy than conventional incandescents. They’re also cheaper in the long run: A 10-watt LED that replaces your traditional 60-watt bulb will save you $125 over the light bulb’s life.

Maintaining Your Car

4. Maintain your ride

If all Americans kept their tires properly inflated, we could say 1.2 billion gallons of gas each year. A simple tune-up can boost miles per gallon anywhere from 4% to 40%, and a new air filter can get you a 10% boost.
