Do you have a small idea to make this world Green? Mention if you already use it.

My big greening idea is really small. I want to help households in reducing its carbon footprint. Simply by using more efficient lighting, cooling and windows. Budget all of this from ones annual energy spend.

The small acts I use to have a greener presence is to recycle every scrap of paper, even envelops that come in post.

Plus, I never travel to a place if the work can be done over the internet, like banking / shopping / meetings.

Curious for more small ideas that can have a large impact.

    Jun 6 2012: Placed all my electrical devices on power strips, which I have turned off when not using. Use fluorescent light bulbs. Turn on lights only in the room that I am in. And going to see if I can make it though the summer without turning on the AC. Probably the best thing I did to save energy, stop watching so much TV, only turn it one once or twice a week.
