What You Can Do to Celebrate
Plant a tree. Change a light bulb. Drive less. Everyone can make a difference and everyone can do their part.

Here are some ways you can help:

Walk this Way--Consolidate errands so you complete them all in one car journey or if possible, ride a bike or walk to your destination.

See the Light--Switch from traditional to energy-efficient, compact fluorescent light bulbs.  Don't forget to turn off the lights when you leave a room.  Use natural light if possible.

Offset your Carbon Footprint--Visit to complete a short survey to tally your CO2 emissions and then donate enough trees to offset your carbon footprint. It's so easy!

Clean Up Your Act--Use nontoxic, concentrated cleaners. Try Get Clean™ the new natural line of household cleaners from Shaklee that are safe for you, your home and your planet. You can make an incredible difference by switching from conventional brands to the Get Cleanget clean starter kit Starter Kit. You'll eliminate 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills, 248 pounds of greenhouse gases and have the environmental equivalent of planting 10 trees!
To date, consumers who've bought Get Clean Starter Kits have eliminated 4,247,248 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. Click here to learn more.

Remember the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle)--Reduce your consumption of natural resources by reusing and recycling as much as possible. Consider the garbage can a last-resort option to be used sparingly.

BYOB (Bring your own bag)--Whether you're shopping at a grocery or department store, bring your own bag. There is enough petroleum in 14 plastic bags to drive a car one mile. Keep it for the car by bringing your own bag.

We spend an enormous amount of time in our homes, which makes them the most important place to start going green. Don't forget that our schools, daycares, offices, and communities can all be more healthy, efficient, and environmentally friendly!
