How to live in a sustainable environment?|
What can we do to fight pollution?
What can we do to reduce climate change?
What can we do to secure our health?
Can we do that and lower our monthly bills? + YES +
1) Everyone can reduce his/her carbon dioxide emissions!
Most important: Reduce the amount of electricity you are using. Most countries burn coal or oil to produce electricity. Burning coal or oil is polluting the air, producing poisonous pollution, causing climate change!!
Unplug appliances that are not in use. Most appliances use electricity even they are shut off - save electricity and money!
Use more efficient light bulbs. The old light bulbs produce more heat than light and you pay for it. They have a much shorter lifespan than the modern light-bulbs.
Some of you can afford to buy a solar panel also called photo-voltaic. The electricity you get from these panels is clean and nowadays often cheaper than buying it from a electricity producing company.
2) Everyone can reduce his/her air pollution emissions!
Everyone can reduce gasoline usage by driving less and driving responsible!
You can walk or use a bicycle if possible, reducing the amount of greenhouse gases.
3) Everyone can plant a tree or a CO2 eating plant!
It really helps: Trees take in pollution, they produce oxygen, they store CO2. Trees prevent soil loss, stabilize aquifers.
Life on Earth cannot survive without trees!
4) Everyone can reduce the amount of fungicide + pesticides!
Most man-made chemicals are harmful to life, to us humans. They don't kill immediately, but slowly.
Killing bugs looks sometimes helpful, but most of the time you kill the good bugs too. The bee population is shrinking worldwide, but we need bees to pollinate our plants.
5) Everyone can ask his/her political party to think about the future of our children!
6) Use less paper: Paper is made out of shredded trees. Less paper = more trees.
7) Try to avoid litter flying around. In the Pacific ocean and in the Atlantic ocean are huge areas covered with litter changing the evaporation, changing the climate, endangering marine life.
8) Use bottled water only, when there is no healthy water coming out of your water faucet. In most countries the water our of the faucet is healthier and better controlled than the water in water bottles!
The transport of these water bottles blows huge amounts of pollution in the air. Many of the bottles are not recycled, so they end up in the trash, or in the ocean.
Better informed people make better decisions!

The US and China are the largest contributors to global warming on Earth.
The US average annual emissions are 19.6 tons per person, nearly five times the Earth average of 3.9 tons per person.
But it is possible to reduce the amount of CO2 that we generate!
Possible, without changing our life totally -
Cut your CO2 emissions by ~20,000 pounds (10 tons) and save a lot of money!
With these easy actions:
Conservation At Home
Choose clean energy
Where possible select a power plan that uses clean energy.
You can save up to 8,000 lbs of CO2 per Year
Recycling saves a lot of energy needed to make new products.
Recycle your glass, aluminum, plastic, cardboard and newspapers.
You can save huge amount of carbon dioxide by recycling your household waste.
Recycling metal reduces the amount of energy to produce new metal by 80%
Recycling aluminum reduces the amount of energy to produce new can by 90%
Reducing the amount of energy we use is the biggest help to reduce climate change!!

Hello from Triple!
I enjoyed your web site and the way you presented this very important information. The timing of this is perfect for what we are going through here on our new property.
The funny thing about humans is that we don't take care of things that we don't understand and we don't take care of things that we do not feel we own.
Most humans don't feel they own Earth and for certain, not many actually own any large amount of this planet.
We have discovered that since we now own a piece of property, that we care for this piece of property a lot better than any of the owners before us. It is appalling to us to find trash and waste right here on our property, left there by the previous owners who didn't care enough about their own property to take care of it.
Through our association with BSB, we have come to learn and appreciate the importance of caring for our property and therefore Earth. And, the strange part is that this caring that we now understand is not only going to help Earth, but it will also improve our enjoyment of our new property.
So it only stands to reason that when we take care of our Earth, that we are also taking care of ourselves.
We are already seeing improvements in the quality of our property by implementing just a few of your suggestions. There are so many more ideas that we need to put into force and we will no doubt enjoy those improvements once we have gotten around to doing them. It is through the hard work and efforts of great people like you two that so many of us will learn to take better care of our wonderful planet Earth.
Thanks for your continued flow of useful information.

Walk, bike, carpool or take mass transit
You'll save one pound of carbon dioxide for every mile you don't drive!
Check your tires
Keeping your tires inflated properly improves gas mileage by more than 3%.
Every gallon of gasoline saved keeps 20 lbs of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere!
Use less hot water or install a solar hot water heater
Avoid products with a lot of packaging
Plant a tree - rescue a tree!
A single tree will absorb 1 ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime.
Turn off electronic devices
Simply turning off your television, DVD player, stereo, and computer when you are not using them will save you thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide a year.

What can You Do Right Now?
1. Turn lights and appliances off when you leave the room. It only takes a second, and those savings can really add up.
2. Scrape, rather than rinsing dishes, and only run the dishwasher when you have a full load. This simple step can save up to 20 gallons of heated water a day.
3. Turn your hot water heater down to 120 degrees (or the "low" setting).
4. Replace your old shower head with a low-flow model. This can save you up to $145 every year by reducing water heating costs!
5. Replace incandescent light bulbs with CFLs to cut your lighting costs by up to 75 percent.
Better: Replace incandescent light bulbs with LED bulbs to cut your lightning costs by up to 94%. Many Walmart stores carry LED bulbs for 4 - 12 Dollars.
6. Plug appliances into power strips and turn them off when not in use. One great way to reduce that energy waste is with power strips, which can be turned off to prevent electricity flowing to appliances when it's not needed.
7. Use a laundry detergent formulated for use in cold water, and wash your laundry using cold water only. 90 percent of the energy used to wash clothes goes to heating water. Consider using a drying rack or clothesline instead of drying clothes in a dryer. If you do use a dryer, keep your lint trap clean and save over $40 every year.
8. Put aluminum foil behind radiators to reflect heat back into the room.
9. Simple maintenance: keep radiators and refrigerator coils clean and free of dust. Clean or replace the filters in your furnace, water heater, and/or air conditioner.
10. For every degree you turn down your thermostat in the winter, or turn it up in summer, you save over 3 percent on your energy bill!! You can install a programmable thermostat to automatically implement those energy savings when you leave for the day.
