1. BUY LOCAL. That reduces transportation costs, and keeps local merchants in the game.
  2. RECHARGE IT. Use rechargable batteries and keep disposable batteries out of landfills.
  3. READ THE TAG. Use the energy rating when buying tools and appliances.
  4. GET A RIDE. Carpool, bus, bike. Good for the Sound and healthy, too.
  5. WALK IT OFF. Take a hike to work. Good for the heart, good for the Sound.
  6. BEAT THE HEAT. Lower your thermostat & water heater temperature to save money & energy.
  7. LIGHT IT UP. Switch to Compact Fluorescent Bulbs. CFL's use 75% less energy and last longer than incandescent bulbs.
  8. POWER DOWN. Make sure everything is turned off when you leave work.
  9. DON'T BE A DRIP. Regularly servicing your car keeps oil in your engine and out of the Sound.
  10. DIG IT. Plant a native tree or a shrub. They absorb carbon dioxide, storm water, and prevent erosion. Also are nice to look at.
