Reduce Your Consumption Footprint
In the book Cooler Smarter*, The Union of Concerned Scientists' dissect the average American’s personal contribution to greenhouse gas emissions based on five broad categories: food; transportation; home heating and cooling, stuff you buy; and other home energy use.
On average,10% of our individual contribution to greenhouse gas emissions as Americans comes from material purchases. That’s approximately “two tons of emissions”!
As you enter the New Year, we challenge you to think about how you want to spend that 10%.
