7. Decrease Your Carbon Footprint

Earth Day is a great day to decrease your carbon footprint.

Your carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouses gases that your daily activities emit.

One of the best ways to decrease your carbon footprint is to go without your car.

On Earth Day, ride your bike or walk to wherever you need to go.

Not only will this help the environment, but you will be getting exercise and fresh air!

If a car is absolutely necessary, try carpooling.

Carpooling is another wonderful way to reduce your carbon footprint.

Perhaps you will even decide you want to go without a car or carpool long term, which would be really great for the environment!
