You can..

Sign the Climate Pledge.

Commit, reduce, offset, and share! It’s that simple.

Switch to EKOenergy.

The international ecolabel for renewable, sustainable electricity. A few key ways to save electricity are investing in energy-efficient appliances, washing laundry in cold water, air- drying  laundry, and taking shorter showers. Cold showers are fun too!

Heat efficiently.

If you have the choice, choose a sustainable heating source for your home and turn down the radiators 1-2 degrees in the winter. Socks and sweaters keep you warm also.

Commute smarter.

Try to live car-free. Or convert your current gas car to flex fuel or use sustainable biodiesel in your current diesel car. If you need a new car, choose electric, hybrid, biogas, or flexfuel. As always, public transit and bicycle are great ways to get around.

Fly less.

Flying in the sky is pretty amazing, but it has a massive carbon footprint. If possible, take the train or travel locally.

Eat climate-friendly.

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” ~ Michael Pollan. Bang on. A plant-based diet is a climate-friendly diet. Reducing your food waste and buying local, seasonal food are a great help also.

Consume wisely.

Buy less stuff, find used things, and support sustainable companies. For starters, get some Save Pond Hockey gear! -> Beanies hand-sewn in Helsinki and shirts from PureWaste!

Offset emissions.

If you can’t eliminate every molecule of CO2, that’s ok. You can offset the rest through the UN’s carbon offset program! Hint: if you don’t want to calculate your annual emissions, the average Finn’s carbon footprint is 10 tons/year. That’s a big footprint.
