The average American uses enough energy each year to release 50,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide, the major contributor to global warming. By increasing energy efficiency in your home and changing a few high-energy habits, everyone can help the earth, save money and decrease our dependence on foreign oil. Here you’ll find links to some great sites and downloadable tools to help you reduce your own carbon footprint and help your friends and neighbors do the same.
