So how do we help?

What can we do to help to fight the climb of greenhouse gasses in our one and only small little planet? We are all concerned about how much really can one person’s actions affect this global phenomenon. Can I really make a change?

Well, we are more than 6 billion single persons on this planet and hopefully, it is not only you that is taking an action. Some of us are executives in large multinational companies that can affect decisions regarding use of energy and resources.
If some of these executives are on our side (sorry, our “planet side”), we can, and we will make a change!

Following are ideas for actions and habits you can start with.
Don’t jump too quickly into deep water. Start slow and after a while some of these steps will become a second nature for you.

Incandescent lighting

Save money and save the environment by using non incandescent lighting – Yes, Thomas Alva Edison will be turning in his grave, but unfortunately his invention is now replaced by more efficient lighting solutions.
The most popular is the Fluorescent lamps.
These days we are slowly migrating to LED lighting.
These lamps radiate much less heat and use less energy to emit the same amount of light. This will not only reduce gas emissions but also save you some money by using less energy while lasting longer.
