    The simple answer is to “use less, insulate more.”  The citation below gives some examples to help you reduce carbon emissions around the home, but I’ll repeat some of them here.  Buy energy efficient appliances and light bulbs, run power-thirsty appliances like washers and dryers as little as possible, add loft insulation and radiant barriers to your roof, insulation to the walls of your home, double glazed windows or solar screens to your home, and draft-proof the doors of your home.  By using less energy, power plants need to burn less coal and oil to power your home, thus reducing both your costs and your house’s carbon footprint.

    There are a number of ways in which home-owners may reduce carbon emissions. An easy yet often overlooked way to reduce carbon emissions through energy conservation is guarding your outlets against what is known as phantom energy. Many gadgets and electronics suck up power even when they are not being used.

    This energy wasted can account for 10% of your electric bill. Unplugging your various phone and electronic chargers when not in use and using a power strip, which you can turn off at the end of the day, will reduce the amount of unneeded energy which your electronics are pulling from the grid.

    The siple way is to place biodegradable wastes from non-biodegradables separately.Take the non-biodegradables to their manufacturers for recycling and dispose of the biodegradables in the refuse dump where you will convert to a garden. Do not burn anything.
