Neringa S-Lithuania, Feb. 28, 2012

Hi! My name is Neringa. I’m from Lithuania. :)
Participation in this project gave me a better understanding how humans are destroying Earth everyday. My biggest quantity of CO2 emission was at home category.
At first it shocked me a lot, but now I am ready to take some actions, which could help to reduce this amount of CO2 emissions. :) I want to share them with you and hear your opinion about it:
Fist of all I understood, that I have to use shower more than a bath. It is much cheaper and also requires not that much water.
Second thing which I decided to do is turning off the lights when I am leaving the room.
I am going to switch off my computer, tv, mobile phone charger and other electronic gadgets when I don’t need them.
I will also turn off the water until I need it while brushing my teeth.
Another good thing, which i usually do, is printing on both sides of paper.

I advice you to use these advices.These things are really not hard to do. Everyone of us should try living in this way. It would make our CO2 emissions lower. Futhermore living in this way could save a lot of money which is spent on paying bills. :)

    Another thing you could do to lower you electricity use is to tur off electronics completely. Not just stand by but cut the power on TV for exemple.

    Those are great ideas, it's the little things we do everyday that can help. If we unplugged our computers, laptops, radios etc instead of just turning them off it would lead to even less.

    Hi, Im Youssef from Cairo, Egypt. I also suggest using public transports more often, which will incredibly decrease our CF. I disagree on the money saving part, note that “GREEN” products are much more expensive such as re-usable bags, lightbulbs, and even cars.
