Idea #5- Check Auto Tire Pressure & Air Filter Monthly
Merely keeping the tires on your car adequately inflated will save 250 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $840 per year. http://www.stopglobalwarming.org reports that if everyone in the United States did only this one thing, gasoline use nationwide would come down by 2 percent!
In addition, check your car's air filter once a month and save another 800 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $130 per year.
You get the idea. These could be just the beginning of some simple changes that make yours a thriftier and more ecologically balanced household. Hey, this gets to be good for your pocketbook, your safety, and the planet. Fighting global warming and your self-interest go hand in hand.
