The public debate around carbon emissions and climate change is very much in the public domain, and many people are highly aware of the relevant factors. Some of you may feel obliged to do something but you may not know what to do or where to get started. Well, you don’t have to go out saving whales or putting out forest fires to provide assistance, you simply need to simply follow a few simple tips to make a difference! Below are a number of ways in which you can contribute.

1. Always use your laptop computer, not a desktop computer. Computers nowadays are ubiquitous, with hundreds applications. Because laptop computers are fifty percent more energy efficient, always look to use a laptop instead of a standard PC. Additionally, never mind being cheaper, laptops are light and compact and can be taken along to nearly all places you go to.

2. Don’t drive, try walking instead It’s a terrible thing, but driving an automobile means pollution. Much pollution of the environment is due to the the release of toxic gases through the burning of a automobile’s fuel. Think of the huge number of vehicles in use around the world each day, and you’ll begin to understand the extent of the problem. If we all made a point of walking instead of going by car just once every day, we’d effect a great change for the better. However, you can’t walk all the time but you should try to when there is opportunity to do so. Next time you want to the corner shop, try walking. Walking can clear up your head, great for your health as well as that of the environment, and save you some money in the process.

3. While brushing your teeth, shut the tap As water is just a turn of the faucet away, we use it thoughtlessly, and waste a lot in the process. When cleaning your teeth ensure that you turn the faucet off, otherwise you’ll be wasting a lot of water. Think of the amount of water is wasted if you brush your teeth for two minutes while the water is running. A good idea is to just fill a cup with water and use that to rinse your mouth out since less water goes to waste.

4. Try not to take long baths, have a quick shower Taking a shower uses less electricity and water than taking a bath, so choose to shower. Simply keep in mind not to luxuriate in the shower; stay for too long and you’re back to squandering water. If you can’t make your shower brief, you aren’t going to save water.

5. Try not to leave the lights turned on day in and day out Try not to leave a light on in a vacant room. If a room is vacant, what is the purpose of leaving a light on? Doing this is not merely good to the environment, but also to your bank account. And flip the lights off when it’s sunny outdoors; you should have enough natural light indoors.

Observing these simple tips won’t leave you wth holes in your pockets. In fact, they’ll likely save you money. So answer the invitation – start living green.

Let me ask you, do you think the bit others say about “newly discovered” when talking about information about solar energy today? We’re not sure, either, but there are right and wrong ways to ways to going green news. The truth is occasionally just waiting to be discovered.
