Community Voices: Earth Hour – Climate Change

Here are some simple tips from Brenda and another explore.org fan on how to save energy and reduce waste:

  • Cool Down: “We keep our house at 58 in winter, and do not own an AC, but use shades and shutters in summer, with fans at night to cool the house.” – Brenda
  • Combine trips for errands, and drive a hybrid (or a bike!)
  • Practice one light per capita as much as possible
  • Buy produce at a local farm (or local farmer’s market)
  • Take short showers.
  • Recycle
  • Use cloth most times to wipe up spills
