Reduce the Carbon Footprint

In your own little way, there is a lot you can do to preserve the environment. The first thing that comes to mind is to reduce the carbon footprint. This is the time for you to make string decisions about your lifestyle and look for opportunities where the impact on the climate can be reduced. Here are some ways to help you make small yet significant contribution to the environment.

Reducing the carbon footprint of your car
You can save a lot of fuel if you drive properly. When you are driving, always accelerate slowly and smoothly. Always stick to the driving speed limit for your safety as well as that of your fuel that you waste by driving too fast. Maintain a steady speed throughout while driving and avoid accelerating and decelerating as it impacts the engine more and uses more gas. Always maintain your car and keep it running efficiently. Replace your air, oil and fuel filters periodically.

Reduce Carbon Footprints of your Regular Travel
When you ponder over the things that you can do to save money and miles, you will be able to come up with many opportunities. You can start by combining your trip with another person or set of people travelling in the same direction. You can also preferably walk or use the bike instead of using your car for short distances. You can also think of telecommuting occasionally to avoid taking your car to work.

Reduce carbon footprint at Home
You can begin with changing the lights around the house and use CFL’s that can save up to 2/3rd energy and the subsequent costs. Always buy energy efficient appliances for your home.
