It doesn't have to be Earth Day for you to help combat climate change! Try following these green tips:

Build Green & Use Solar Power - if remodeling or building a new home, use green materials and solar energy (use federal tax credits and state buy down programs if available) to reduce 1000 to 6000 lbs. of CO2.

Purchase Green Power - if available in your area, purchase 100% green power from a company and prevent 3800 to 6200 lbs. of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.

Wash Cool - do two loads of your laundry per week in cold or warm water instead of hot (and hang stuff out to dry when you can), save 500 lbs. of CO2 a year.

Store Smartly, Save Money - buy energy star refrigerators and other appliances and save money as well as 1000 lbs. of CO2 a year.

Light Up - replace three incandescent bulbs with fluorescent bulbs in your home and eliminate 300 lbs. of CO2 (lasts longer, burns less).

Recycle - recycling half of the aluminum, glass, plastic, and paper you use reduces 2400 lbs. of CO2.

Turn If Down, Turn If Up - turn your heater down and your air conditioner up by three degrees and save 1050 lbs. of CO2 per year.

Drive Less - 15 miles less diving per week (bike, carpool, walk) eliminates 900 lbs. of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.

Tune Up - clean oil and properly inflated tires eliminate 1000 lbs. of CO2 per year.

Drive Smart - a hybrid or electric vehicle eliminates 5600 lbs. of CO2 per year.
