Listed below are just a few ideas this incredible ebook has to offer. It is free, a gift, to you so that you can be empowered to make a difference in your world today.

1. Stop junk mail. Have you ever considered how much energy is consumed creating all that unsolicited junk mail that you receive in your inbox?

2. Don't dump oil, grease, antifreeze, pesticides, fertilizers, paints, cleaners, and other toxic household products down the storm drain or street gutter.

3. Use silverware and dishes instead of plastic and paper. You'll also save money!

4. Recycle your ink and toner cartridges. Every year Americans throw away enough ink and toner cartridges to stretch from New York City to Los Angeles and back again!

5. Don't throw clothes away. If they're still in good shape give them to organizations that clothe the poor.

6. Use fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs are brighter, last longer and use one fourth the energy of incandescent bulbs.

7. Purchase only Energy Star® appliances. These energy efficient appliances can save you up to 50% over regular appliances.

8. Turn your hot water heater down to 120 degrees, and wrap it in a blanket.

9. Turn your thermostat down, or purchase a new programmable thermostat to control when it is needed.

10. Recycle as much as possible and don't litter!

There are many more, but these should help get you started. Remember, every little bit does make a difference when combined with others' efforts!
