Big steps

Here are some ideas of big steps to take that will help the environment. These are more difficult to do or cost a significant amount of money. I have not done all of these items but am working on a few of them.

-ride a bike to work, take mass transit or carpool. This takes some planning and may be difficult with your work schedule.

-give up eating meat.

-install solar panels to your house

-plant native plants in your yard. They will require less water and benefit the local wildlife

-buy your clothes used or from companies with sustainable environmental practices (this takes some research)

-install energy star appliances

-buy all organic vegetables and fruit

-grow and preserve more of your own food

-support environmental organizations. Some of my faves are Sierra Club, Union of Concerned Scientists and WWF.
