Compost:  Each year billions of pounds of food are wasted in the United States.   Composting is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Food scraps in landfills produce methane which is a 25% more potent greenhouse gas than CO2 https://www.epa.gov/recycle/composting-home

Drive an EV:  here’s why:

“Electric vehicles (EVs) save money and reduce air pollution. Compared to gasoline-powered cars, EVs are more energy efficient and cost about 50 to 70% less to operate per mile. Because New York’s electricity includes clean sources, EVs reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants that cause smog and acid rain. “
