World Environment Day 2008

Today is World Environment Day (WED). The World Environment Day slogan for 2008 is

Kick the Habit! Towards a Low Carbon Economy.

So here are a few ways you can immediately implement to go carbon-neutral -

  • REPLACE your light bulbs with CFLs
  • WASH CLOTHES at 30 degrees centigrade and no higher if your washing machine has a temperature setting.
  • WALK OR CYCLE. Use public transport or carpool.
  • SWITCH OFF electronic gadgets, don’t leave them on standby. So turn that computer off while retiring.

Here are a few implementable ways from the The 80 Ways To Celebrate WED 2008:

  1. Adopt a ‘green’ way of life
  2. Art made of recycled materials
  3. Bicycle parades/races
  4. Buy a fuel-efficient car
  5. Carpools
  6. Dedicate your blog to World Environment Day on 5 June (We are dedicating the whole month to it...so full points to the writers on Writers Blend!)
  7. Join an environmental group
  8. Keep your neighbourhood clean
  9. Kick the CO2 habit!
  10. Never litter
  11. Offset your emissions
  12. Organic farming/cooking
  13. Plant a tree
  14. Plastic bags: avoid them!
  15. Rainwater harvesting
  16. Reduce, re-use, recycle
  17. Rehabilitate natural habitats
  18. Replace your light-bulbs with energy saving ones
  19. Save paper
  20. Sort rubbish
  21. Switch off stand-by TV and computer
  22. Use sustainable modes of transportation (walking, jogging, cycling, skating, carpool)
  23. Vehicle emission monitoring
  24. Waste less!
  25. Xpect environmental responsibility

So save it!
