“There are some simple changes we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on our environment. Every bit helps.”
Some of the solutions and ideas listed in this article are cost-free, and just require effort. Others are almost effort-free and can even save you money. There are also some grander steps that require investment in your home but offer big long-term savings.
