      10 things you can do to decrease climate change.
      Pledge to do at least one this year by selecting the checkbox.

      Change a LightbulbOne compact fluorescent bulb lasts as long as 13
      regular bulbs and uses 75% less energy. Find other quick ways to save
      at home here.

      Leave Your Car in the DustCarpool or take public transportation to
      work and keep some of that hard-earned pay in your pocket. For trips
      to nearby stores or friend's houses, walk or bike.

      Power UpWhere does your electricity come from? Lots of utilities
      offer renewable options these days, like incorporating some wind and
      solar into the mix. Find cleaner energy options in your area by using
      this clickable map.

      Drive SmartIf you do drive, consider a hybrid or an alternative fuel
      vehicle. Or buy a TerraPass to ease your driving guilt. Buying a
      TerraPass offsets the impact from your car by decreasing emissions
      from other sources by the same amount your car produces.

      End the Junk Mail TrailSave trees and the energy used in paper
      production by taking your name off mailing lists.

      Power DownShutting down your computer when you're not using it can
      save from $100 to $400 a year in electricity. Turning off other
      appliances can save even more.

      Buy LocalOn the average, produce grown in the U.S. travels 1500 miles
      to reach grocery store shelves. Save on fuel by buying from local
      growers, or create your own community garden.

      Geek OutYou don't have to give up your gadgets to slow climate
      change. Use solar power to charge your cell phone, iPod, radio --
      just about everything -- under the sun.

      Wash and WearThe newest, most efficient washers use up to four times
      less energy than older models, and can save $70 a year in energy
      costs. Try line-drying your laundry, and find more energy-efficient
      appliances here.

      donation. These organizations are already working to slow climate
      change. Click here to find out more and give them the help they need.
