So many of our everyday activities, from commuting to turning on lights, result in the burning of fossil fuels for energy. This burning produces greenhouse gases that pile up in the atmosphere and trap heat, making the planet hotter.
Fortunately, there are many simple ways to lessen the amount of gases that are produced by our everyday actions. A few small changes can add up to huge collective energy savings and emissions reductions. Also, many of these changes bring added benefits, including financial savings and cleaner air.
