Summer Tips to Manage Your Carbon Footprint

Summer is the season full of traveling, adventure, and fun in the sun!  What better time to balance your carbon footprint than now.  A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with all the activities of a person or other entity. Managing your carbon footprint improves public health, boosts the global economy, and combats climate change. This week we have provided you with some tips that you can use to manage your carbon footprint during these warmer months.

  • Consider fuel efficient cars for traveling.* Fuel efficient cars have an ‘eco-mode’ feature that you can use to help reduce the time that your car is idling or carrying around unnecessary weight. This can aid in the reduction of carbon emissions.
  • Shop local for produce.* Purchasing your favorite fruits and veggies from farmer markets, produces less waste and supports local businesses. Eating locally ensures that your food has not traveled thousands of miles using fossil fuels that produce large amounts of greenhouse gasses.
  • Consider green solutions, like CleanSteps®. CleanSteps gives you the option to green your lifestyle your way, from dining out to using the internet. You can visit www.cleansteps.com to discover the best solution for you.
