Make a Difference!

The problem seems so big, it may be hard for you to imagine that anything you do can really help at all. But it will. Here are some changes you can make in your life to help prevent global warming:

  • Plant trees
  • Start a seed bank (keep the seeds of many varieties of plants stored away safely)
  • Switch every light in your house to an energy-saving bulb
  • Reduce, reuse, recycle
  • Wear a sweater instead of turning up the heat in your house
  • Wear lighter clothing when it’s hot instead of turning on a fan
  • Turn lights, computers and all your chargers off and unplug them when they’re not in use
  • Only do full loads of laundry
  • Take shorter showers
  • Skip the car ride and use your bike, or walk or take the bus
  • Don’t buy bottled water; drink tap water, and filter it if you like
  • Eat lower on the food chain (less meat) and eat fewer processed foods

Knowledge is power. Change can only happen if all of us read about, listen to and discuss what’s happening in the world today.
