Yoiur Eco TIPS

I know now that our world is in danger of ending with
the high gas prices and our constant need for foreign
oil but... if you act now ...right now you can get your
self and others to try and change our dreadful fait!

!.Use less hot water
it takes alot of energy to heat water, you can use less water by installing a low flow showerhead(350 pounds of carbon dioxide saved per year) and washing your clothes cold or warm water(500 pounds saved per year) instead of hot.

2.Use a clothesline instead of a dryer whenever possible
you can save 700 pounds of carbon dioxide when you air dry your clothes for six months out of the year

3.(MAJOR)Turn off electrontics devices you're not using
simply turing off your television, dvd player, stereo, and even your computer when your not using them will save you thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide o year... to get started now , start by unpluging your cell phone charger, because it still uses tons of energy to be still in the socket?!and saves your parents money on the elcertic bill , so think more money you can have?!

4.Buy recycled paper products
It takes less 70 to 90% less energy to make recycled paper and it prevents the loss of forests nationwide!thats good for animals that will live net door to you soon, and better for your brething air!

5.Recycling is a must!!!
you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide a year by recycling half of the waste your house hold generates.EARTH 911 CAN HELP YOU FIND RESOURCES NEAR YOU!SO RECYCLING IS A GOOD THING!

6.Plant trees evert three months if possible
A single tree will absorb one ton of carbon dixoide over it's life time and by planting as many as you can can really make a big differnce that can CHANGE YOUR WORLD! the ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION has info on planting and provides trees you can plant with membership!?

7.Eat less meat
Methane is the second most significant greenhouse gas and cows are one of the greatest methane emitters,Their grassy diet and multiple stomachs cause them to produce methane , which they exhale with every breath.

8.TRY CAR SHARING(carpool)
