Holy cow!

We got to do something about this…

C02 on the rise!!!

Go CO2now.org to find out how excessive CO2 in our atmosphere will affect the planet and eventually us ourselves…

These are the 10 tips from the Selangor 10:10 campaign:

1. Fly less, holiday more
Swap plane for train, holiday nearer to home and take fewer but longer trips – dramatically reducing carbon emissions

2. Save 10% on air-con
Turn up your thermostat of the air-conditioning to 25 degrees and above. Or try the fan and natural air (it’s healthier actually)

3. Save 10% on electricity
Save big cash by changing to energy saving light bulbs, replacing old fridges & irons and always turning stuffs off, not just standby. Compare with last year’s bill

4. Drive less
Leave your car at home one day a week. Walk, cycle or take public transport. Car-pool to work

5. Eat better
Local organic fruit & vegetable produce the least emissions – and the less processed the better. Try one meat-free day per week.

6. Buy good stuff
Less stuff made = less emissions = less climate damage. So buy high-quality things that last, repair broken stuffs rather than throwing, buy & sell second-hand items

7. Dump less
Avoid excess packaging and reduce, reuse & recycle everything possible and compost your scraps. Say no to plastic bags

8. Don’t waste food
The average Malaysian family throws away RM100 worth of food every month. So don’t buy or cook more than you need and eat up those tasty leftovers.

9. Don’t waste water
Your tap water uses lots of energy – and then heating it in your home uses loads more – so take showers instead of baths, collect rainwater for plants and only run a full bin washing machine.

10. Feel happier
