CLIMATE CHANGE What You Can Do at Home 1. Change five lights Replace your five most frequently used light fixtures or the lightbulbs in them with ENERGY STAR qualified products and you will help the environment while saving $70 year on energy bills. ENERGY STAR lighting provides bright, warm light; generates 75% less heat; uses about 75% less energy than standard lighting; and lasts from 10 to 50 times longer. 2. Use water efficiently It takes lots of energy to pump, treat, and heat water, so saving water reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Saving water around the home is simple. Reduce the amount of waste you generate and the water you consume whenever possible. Pursue simple water-saving actions such as not letting the water run while shaving or brushing teeth. 3. Be green in your yard Composting your food and yard waste reduces the amount of garbage that you send to landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. 4. Spread the word Tell family and friends that energy efficiency is good for their homes and good for the environment because it lowers greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Tell five people and together we can help our homes help us all.
