Believe it or not the small things we do in our home releases emissions that cause greenhouse gas, the leading cause of global warming. From turning on a lights-switch to turning up the temp in the house, these little things can add up over time.


While you may not be able to a net-zero carbon footprint tomorrow, by understanding your house's carbon footprint, you can work toward net-zero.


Some very simple things you can do include:

- Changing out light-bulbs to ensure they are LED

- Unplug appliances you are not using because even if it's shut off, it can still be pulling power.

- Call your local utility providers as they often do "Green" audits to provide additional support.

- Ensure you have proper insulation both in the walls and attic.

- Recycle and repurpose garbage.




These are just a few of the hundreds of ideas you can do to reduce your house's carbon footprint. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a carbon footprint calculator you can use to see how your house does. Take a look here: https://www3.epa.gov/carbon-footprint-calculator/
