Three tips for what you can do:
1.) Eliminate single-use plastics like plastic utensils, water bottles and straws. When shopping look for products with minimal plastic packaging.
2.) Become more energy efficient. Switch to LED light bulbs, unplug small electronic devices and appliances when not in use, and install a programmable thermostat.
3.) Reduce your vehicle emissions. Drive less, walk and bike more, utilize public transportation, and carpool whenever possible.
