Tips for Reducing your Carbon
          Footprint 3




                        Part 3 of 3 in the Tips for
                        Reducing your Carbon
                        Footprint Series
Turn it off!
      • Turn off lights and unplug
        electronics when not in
        use.

      • Using a power strip can
        make this easier because
        all you have to do is click
        the power switch on or
        off (just make sure your
        electronics are turned off
        before doing so).
At Home Heating & Cooling Systems
                • Properly maintain your
                  heating and cooling
                  systems.

                • Turn down or off your
                  central heating when
                  not at home.

                • Make sure your home
                  is properly insulated.
Washing Laundry
       • Always wash a full load of
         laundry.

       • Choose the cold-water
         setting when washing
         clothes.

       • Heating up water takes a
         lot of energy. Plus many
         detergent companies are
         making detergents specially
         designed for cold-water
         washes.
Drying Laundry
       • Clean your dryer lint
         catch before drying
         clothes. This will
         reduce your energy
         consumption and
         drying time.

       • Better yet hang clothes
         on a drying line than
         tumble drying them.
Means of Transportation
           • Carpool when going to
             work, school, or other
             group outings.

           • Use alternative methods of
             transportation, like
             biking, walking, or public
             transportation.

           • Take direct flights. Making
             numerous stops when
             flying increases polluting
             emissions.
