Vegetarian diet
I use the swirly bulbs at my house, though I barely need to use them. The sun gives me most the light I need. ^^

My dad really annoys me when he always offers to drive me home in his SUV when I'm about to leave after visiting. It's a fairly short distance, and it just makes far more sense to walk for multiple reasons. stressed

So anyways, walking and taking public transportation are probably my most constant contributions. I also try to use lights and the tap as little as possible. Oh and I recycle! whee I really need to switch to the new bulbs as soon as I have some more money, though. ^^;

Currently I have the blinds open so I can use the sun as light as opposed to lightbulbs. I've also been following a pesco-vegetarian diet for a little over four years now, so I've been reducing my footprint in that aspect for a while c:

I recycle.
I try to buy stuff from thrift stores, because not only are they cheap, and it's also recycling in another sense.
I try not to drive too much either.

I don't know if this is reducing my carbon footprint, but I turn off our lights everytime no one's using them. We recycle paper and pop cans...
I reduce my footprint by using energy saving lightbulbs, but only at night. The sun is out and I use it whenever I need to see during the day. Go Planet EARTH!

The usual. Re-usable shopping bags, hanging my laundry out to dry on sunny days instead of putting it in the dryer, recycling, things like that *shrugs*

Those special light bulbs. Carpooling. Walking instead of driving short distances. Reading instead of playing video games or watching TV. Also, the obvious: turn stuff off before you leave a room or go to sleep.

Public transportation, and perpetually lobbying for more of it.

I'm not hugely good about reducing my carbon footprint, but I definitely prefer natural light to artificial, and I try my best not to use paper towels to dry my hands--I let my hands drip-dry to save paper. My mom thinks I'm nuts, but it doesn't seem like a big deal to me and it probably helps. I will use paper towels for big kitchen messes, though... *sigh* I wish I was doing more! If my area wasn't overcast for at least 180/365 days of the year, I would try to talk my parents into solar panels...

so embrace it!User Image

Did you know that plants eat Carbon Dioxide?
Did you know that the green house effect actually cools the Earth?
Did you know that climate change is a natural thing the Earth does, to regulate itself? Nothing to do with humans.

Okay, bye now!
