>> Use potpourri instead of aerosol-based sprays.

>> Buy locally grown produce. It has a lower associated pollution cost from transportation.

>> Buy a push lawn mower. It’s good exercise and reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

>> Don’t blow your leaves — rake them instead. Your ears and your neighbours will thank you, and you will reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

>> Make sure your car is properly tuned up and your tires are at the right pressure to ensure optimal fuel efficiency.

>> Encourage carpooling when possible! Put a map up in the office to encourage carpooling and make it easier for riders to connect.
