Avoid Leftovers

Kids look up to you as their role models when it comes to conserving food during meals. In developed countries, each person wastes about 20 percent of the total food supply. This contributes to the growing food waste thus increasing the level of carbon footprint right inside your home. Take time to explain to your kids the value of conserving food.

Watch Your Diet

Reduce your red meat and cheese consumption, because these foods contain carbon intensity 10 times the amount of whole grains or fruit. Maintain healthy living for you and your family by eating healthy, sustainable food that helps the environment.

Transact Online

One way to help reduce your home’s carbon footprint is by using less paper and tree-made products. Transact your retail and other service bills online, using the paperless billing option. Help make Mother Earth a better place to live in by preserving trees that aid you in maintaining a sustainable life.



Keep Worms and Compost

Worms are able to easily compost large amounts of kitchen waste. Worms are known to be much quicker at composting waste than the traditional method of composting. Compost is useful in the garden and for some house plants.
