Save Energy

There are several ways for saving energy. An additional advantage is that in most cases you save money as well. Using renewable energy – energy collected from sunlight, wind, water… – may be the most opportune, long-term solution.

Travel Smart

Needless to say that mobility contributes significantly to the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. Try to fly as infrequently as possible, consider alternatives like the train. Drive less, carpool or even better, make use of public transportation to go to work.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Buy less new products and consider environmental friendly ones. Reuse bottles, recycle paper, reduce your waste. Avoid products with a lot of packaging. And many more…

Plant a Tree

Planting trees or growing your own fruit and vegetables, can help reducing global warming. They consume CO2 during the process of photosynthesis and lower its presence in the atmosphere.

Eat Local, Seasonal Food

Eating fruit and vegetables is important for your health. But transportation of food is expensive in terms of environmental impact. Eat as much local, seasonal fruit and vegetables as possible. They taste best, too.

Eat Less Meat

Meat production costs a significant amount of natural resources and produces greenhouse gases, like methane (CH4). Skipping meat two days a week or eating less each day gets you far in reducing your ecological footprint.

Disconnect

Don’t check your email, Facebook, Twitter, … every 5 minutes. It all consumes energy. Less surfing saves you time, too. An average website loads in more than 2 Mb (in 2016!), this one in about 20 kb (or 100 times less than the average) to save energy!
