Simple Steps to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Simple Steps to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Wondering How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint?
Read On.

Lots of folks ask the same question:“What can I do to reduce my carbon footprint and really make a difference?”

Our answer is here!

We read hundreds of hints and tips, surveyed our greenest members, and worked out what really makes a difference.  We took out all the distractions and put the very best ideas into  a few simple and powerful checklists for you to use.  Using them will reduce your environmental impact in the home and outside, save you money, increase your understanding, and grow your voice for sustainability.

The Checklists

There are three checklists of increasing effort and impact:  Sapling, Tree, and Redwood, and a separate one for the kids.

You may have already taken some or all of the actions on the first checklist, PLEASE still complete it and let us know. Every completed checklist lets others know that you’re out there, and builds your voice for sustainability in the Town.  The later checklists have actions for the most committed.

Novice or expert, every action makes a difference.
