CARA AL 2010: What you can do

  1. Take public transportation, bike, walk, or carpool to work at least one day a week. It is also a good idea to avoid air travel where possible.
  2. Buy food, preferably organic food—vegetables, fruits, dairy, eggs, and meat—from a farmer’s market at least one day a week.
  3. Eat sustainably harvested seafood and farmed fish that is herbivorous, like catfish, tilapia, and shellfish. Avoid farmed carnivorous fish like salmon and shrimp.
  4. Install at least one compact fluorescent light bulb in your home—it will save roughly 30 EUR in electricity and replacement bulb costs each year, and reduce carbon emissions by a ton every three years.
  5. Turn off lights in empty rooms.
  6. Lower the thermostat by at least 1 degree ° C in winter.
  7. Stop using herbicides and pesticides on your lawn.
  8. Learn the environmental positions of all those who represent you in government and support those candidates who have the best records and the best platforms.
  9. Tell everyone at home, school, place of worship, and work about what you are doing to conserve biodiversity and ask them to join you.
  10. Above all, do not waste—reduce your consumption, buy only what you really need, and re-use and re-cycle whatever and whenever you can.
