Even just the simplest actions can make a huge impact on the future of our environment. Here, find tips to reduce, reuse and recycle!

  • Reduce fuel emissions by walking, biking or car-pooling to work.

  • Turn off lights when not in use.
  • Use canvas or reusable bags when grocery shopping.
  • Compost food scraps and yard waste.
  • Bring a coffee mug to work rather than using paper or plastic cups.
