Ten commandments towards fighting 'Global Warming'

  1. Recycle and buy minimally packed goods as much as possible.
  2. Wash clothes in cold or warm water, not hot.
  3. Install low-flow shower heads to use less water.
  4. Run the dishwasher only when full and don't use heat to dry dishes.
  5. Replace standard light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs.
  6. Plug air leaks in windows and doors to increase energy efficiency.
  7. Replace old appliances with energy-efficient ones.
  8. Walk, bike, carpool or use public transportation whenever possible.
  9. Adjust your thermostat -- lower in winter, higher in summer.
  10. Share these simple steps with friends and family and increase awareness.
