Eco Friendly Living and Global Warming Issues

Most scientists and ordinary people now agree that global warming is a serious issue.  Here are a few simple ways to help you do your part to protect the ozone layer:

  • Use fans instead of window air conditioner units as much as possible in your home.
  • Buy energy-efficient vehicles and keep them well maintained to reduce emissions.
  • Instead of a lawn, plant a wildflower garden, which does not require pesticides or chemical fertilizers in order to thrive.
  • If you must have a lawn, use a push mower to maintain it.
  • Let hot food cool down to room temperature before placing it in the refrigerator, which saves the refrigerator from having to work overtime).
  • Drop your thermostat by a degree or two—this saves a surprising amount of energy over the course of a winter.
  • Look for ways to use your vehicle less, including carpooing, walking, bicycling, or working from home.
