Take Immediate Action!
We can no longer postpone doing the right thing. Here are some basic eco-friendly actions you can take right away. You will reduce your footprint and you will save money.
Add 2 trees this year in your house or office building yard or business - one native tree and one fruit tree.
Remove your sod and create a walk-in garden instead.
Convert your irrigation system into drip system in your planter areas.
Install a landscape that is adapted to your local natural environment.
Avoid using gas-powered equipment or feel guilty using it.
Say 'oh! no, no, no' to dangerous chemicals and fertilizers.
Replace all bulbs with low-energy bulbs.
Use outdoor lights with motion detectors instead of leaving your lights on all night long.
Turn off the lights indoor when not needed.
Keep your indoor temperature at 68 degrees indoor in winter and at 78 degrees in summer. Your body is perfectly designed to live comfortably in this range of temperatures.
When buying a new car, get a gas efficient vehicle.
Get rid of your gas-powered "toys".

- plastics #1 and #2
- cans and aluminum, etc...
