As concerned citizens, we should be conscious in our everyday lives of our carbon footprint. Simple tasks, such as carpooling or riding a bike to save gas, can help to alleviate the amount of CO2 being released into the atmosphere. Another easy way to contribute is to turn off lights or electricity when not in use. There are many ways to individually support the change that is crucial to save our environment.
