Buy smart

If you stop buying products that contain powerful greenhouse gases (high GWP gases), you can reduce your impact and you'll be doing something smart for the environment. You can do this by simply not using or using less air conditioning (in the car, at home or work), refrigerators (if you have more than one), foam products (styrofoam cups/containers, foam packaging, foam based home insulation, etc.) and aerosols (hairspray, shaving cream, etc.)

Buying smart also means buying used! Used items not only do you not add any new emissions caused by transporting manufactured goods from the point of production, you also stop the emissions that would have been caused by the manufacturing and packaging of this newly made item.

Reduce your carbon footprint... Go native!

Conventional lawns are a net source of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere because of all the watering, fertilizing, mowing and pest eradication that go into maintaining those areas of turf grass. Landscaping with native plants, on the other hand, virtually eliminates those added sources of emissions while reducing air and water pollution, creating welcoming sites for birds and butterflies, and enhancing the beauty of your home, all at less cost than maintaining a lawn.
