Be a Hero.

Help Save the World.

Our Earth must be habitable for the fish, animals and the billions of other species that share the Earth with us humans. 

The Climate Foundation needs you to help to save the Earth's climate for all the others that live here.

You can help in two ways.

You can do what you can for our planet (see ideas below)

and you can help support The Climate Foundation as we support the Earth.  Contact us for more details.

 

THINGS YOU CAN DO

  • Work at home, move near work or start saving up for an enviromentaly friendly car.
  • Recycle to reduce the energy needed for raw materials. 
  • Reduce your energy consumption (see below).
  • Use renewable energy sources when possible.
  • Offset the remainder of the fossil energy you use.

 

USE LESS ENERGY

Change your lightbulbs to the florescent type.

  • for every incandescent bulb you replace with a compact fluorescent bulb, you'll save the equivalent of about 500 pounds of coal over the life of the bulb, and you'll reduce carbon dioxide by up to 1,300 pounds per year.

Clean or replace dirty furnace filters

  • heating and cooling systems in the US together emit over a half billion tons of carbon dioxide into the air each year.

Weatherstrip your home

  • weatherstripping an electrically heated house can keep 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from having to be produced. That means that that if 1,000 of these homes were weatherized, over a million pounds of C02 would be reduced.

Ceiling fans circulate air which lowers heating and cooling bills.

When driving, link your errands together

Keep your car tires filled

Turn off your lights when not using them.

Donate your unwanted posessions to a charity.
