Today is Earth Day - Here are ten simple steps we all can take to help our planet:
1. replace an incandescent bulb with a CFL bulb
2. clean or replace your AC filter
3. insulate your water heater
4. get a home energy audit
5. adjust your thermostat 2 up in the Summer, 2 down in the Winter
6. install a low flow showerhead
7. recycle your waste at home
8. plant a native tree
9. walk more and avoid driving 10 miles every week
10. keep your car tires properly inflated

These ten steps remove ten tons of CO2 emissions from our atmosphere.
