Ensure Environmental and Energy Issues are Political Priorities

  • Vote for candidates that understand the importance of these issues and are ready to act!
  • Ask your Congressional delegation to join the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus
  • Ask your Congressional delegation to attend an upcoming EESI briefing
  • Ask your state and local officials how they are reducing their environmental impact and how they are adapting to the climate changes already underway


Make a Personal Commitment to Reduce Your Environmental Impact

  • Reduce your need for personal vehicle travel by walking, biking, using public transportation, carpooling, and/or telecommuting
  • When you do drive, use energy efficient techniques such as smooth driving, removing unnecessary cargo, reducing idling, and keeping tires properly inflated
  • Turn off lights and unplug electronics when not in use
  • Set your thermostat to avoid unnecessary heating or cooling while you are away or asleep
  • Conserve water (which also helps save energy!) by turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth, running only full loads in your washing machine, watering plants in the early morning, and installing low-flow shower heads and toilets
  • Purchase goods that were produced locally and packaged minimally, to reduce waste and transportation emissions
  • Install energy efficient lighting, appliances, windows and insulation in your home or office
  • Purchase clean, renewable energy from your utility, or take advantage of federal (and some state) tax incentives for installing your own renewable energy system
