Environmental Tips by the EPA

Tips about saving energy For example, reduce your carbon footprint! Use public transportation, carpool, walk, or bike whenever possible to avoid using your car.

Tips about using water efficiently For example, buy water-efficient fixtures and products. The WaterSense label helps shoppers identify water efficient products and programs.

Tips to Reduce / Reuse / Recycle For example, allow grass clippings to stay on the lawn, instead of bagging them. The cut grass will decompose and return to the soil naturally.

Tips for making environmentally protective choices For example, during hot weather, don't top off your gas tank. Even a small gas spill adds to air pollution and wastes fuel.
