If you reside in the city, use the bus. Also, if your home is in a rural area, carpool to work and instead of making a number of trips every week to run errands, save them for just one journey.

Take time to look at your everyday activities and how you can do them slightly differently, you may find yourself not just helping the environment, but also helping your wallet. Do only full loads of laundry washing and dishes; cut your shower by a couple of minutes; change to energy-saving lights; turn your family fridge and AC down a single degree and turning off the electric equipment at night are all simple tips on how to help.
Think about the possibility of employing alternative power sources at the local level or at least purchase your electrical power through alternative energy sources.
