EH2ED Day 25: Tread Lightly

Use public transportation, carpool, walk, or bike whenever possible to reduce air pollution and save on fuel costs. Leaving your car at home just two days a week will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 1,600 pounds per year. If you can work from home, you'll reduce air pollution and traffic congestion - and save money.

EH2ED Day 24: Get a Mug Shot

Coffee may be an indispensable part of the day, but you can always get rid of disposable cups! Over its life span, a mug or travel mug will be used about 3,000 times, resulting in 30 times less solid waste and 60 times less air pollution than using the same number of take-out cups.

EH2ED Day 23: Take Up with Shady Characters

Plants not only lower greenhouse emissions and provide habitats for wildlife; they can also lower home energy costs. Trees with high canopies on the west side of your property will provide shade from the afternoon sun. Deciduous trees and vines are useful on your home’s southern side, providing foliage to shade against the summer sun while allowing light and warmth during the winter.

EH2ED Day 22: Don’t Top Your Tank:

When you “top off” your tank at the gas pump, most of that little bit of gas vaporizes and contributes to air pollution. You end up paying for that gas and don’t even get to use it! “Topping off” is also bad for the sensor in your gas tank.

EH2ED Day 21: eCycle it!

Take your old computer, DVD player, or other electronics to an electronics recycling center. Reusing and recycling materials like copper, gold, and others saves natural resources and reduces mining and processing. eCycling also helps avoid land, air, and water pollution by capturing and reusing hazardous substances such as lead or chromium.
