Our homes are our refuge for warmth and safety, but they are also one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, there’s good news — if you want to lower your footprint, there are two simple strategies for your home.
There are many options to get around town in style while reducing your carbon footprint. Particularly for local errands, consider leaving your car at home to reduce your travel footprint.
What we buy matters. Recycling and composting are important, but the majority of carbon emissions are generated before we even purchase an item.
We’re getting buried in trash. The average household in New Jersey generates over 4,500 pounds of waste per year — yikes! Of course, the best way to tackle our waste problem is simply to consume less and make smarter purchasing decisions.
Your lawn can be part of the solution. Our yards and open spaces have the potential to capture and store greenhouse gas emissions — or act as “carbon sinks” – and can serve as critical eco-system connectors for birds and wildlife.
Climate change is here: flooding, heat waves, and power outages are all too common now. With advanced planning and preparation, we can weather the effects of our changing climate.
