TIPS:

Avoid heating up the oven. If you do not need a specific temperature, turn the oven on after putting the meal inside.

Save energy by plugging your computer and home appliances to a multi-socket power strip which you turn off completely when you are not using them.

Close your windows and doors tight: it improves temperature management.

Recycle paper, plastic, glass and aluminium to reduce waste dumps.

Compensate for your CO2 emissions. Climate Neutral Now estimates your carbon footprint and offers you a climate credit. This way you can contribute to reduction of worldwide emissions.
