Toolkit #1: Save Energy

Did you know...

...that globally, households have the potential to reduce our overall electricity needs by 66%? So by being smarter with our energy use, we could phase out 511 coal-fired power plants, and reduce emissions by approximately 1.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year.

 

Chase the power thieves out of your house!

Many household appliances consume much more energy than necessary – even when switched off. By buying better and following a few simple tips, you can decrease both your household’s energy bill and its climate footprint.

Toolkit #2: Climate Friendly Transportation

Did you know...

…that 20% of greenhouse gas emissions come from the transportation sector? That’s 5.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year – the same annual emissions of 1500 power plants.

Reduce your travel footprint

Travel sees our personal carbon footprints vary hugely from one person to the next. While some drive around in massive SUVs and fly away for their holidays, others take the bus and holiday locally. These are big differences in behavior patterns, but the energy saving potential is just as big.

Toolkit #4: Less is More

Did you know...

… that about 15% of your home’s fuel consumption comes from heating water? This is directly proportional to the amount of water we use and how efficient we are in heating it.

In the search for happiness, we consume, and the environment picks up the tab. Yet the happiest people you meet will all tell you that the best things in life aren’t things. An economy where quantity goes before quality is wasting raw materials and belching out massive amounts of greenhouse gases. By managing time and resources more conscientiously, we’ll leave a far smaller ‘ecological footprint’ and far happier lives.
