WAYS TO SAVE
Ways to save carbon emissions in your kitchen.
By reducing your energy use, you help to decrease power plant emissions. Power plants burn coal, crude oil and other fossil fuels to generate electricity. These methods are generally inexpensive, but the planet pays the price. Carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide are by-products that cause airborne pollution and are also greenhouse gases. The greenhouse gases absorb the sun’s warmth and keeps the heat in the atmosphere.
By using less power, you reduce the number of toxic fumes released by power plants. This in return will conserve the earth’s natural resources and protect the ecosystem from destruction.
Going green doesn’t mean- major lifestyle changes!
Just committing to a few easy tweaks in your routine can do wonders for the environment and your wallet!
