    Action Track: Accelerating Solutions Choose Renewable Energy or Purchase Renewable Energy Credits
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your ZIP code, region, and/or state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    To reduce electricity usage making sure all appliances, AC, heater is turned off when not in use. Also spreading awareness in the community is equally important so that not only you, but also your neighborhood contributes to saving electricity

  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Use Public Transit
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    Public transportation has always been my favorite - ever since childhood (since born and raised in Mumbai), public transportation has been the best way to commute (avoids traffic, saves time, meeting new people or spotting similar faces each day..so many exciting things!). The reason I moved to the DC area from NYC was to live in a more greener space with good public transportation options! :) 
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Try Carpooling
    List some of the places you frequent often (work, grocery store, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    I frequently visit the Grocery store and go on hikes, however I always walk to the grocery stores or take the metro (very rarely, only when the weather conditions are not favourable) - walking is a double benefit; you save the nature (by contributing towards pollution control) and you also get your cardio done for the day (yay!!) :)
