10 Effective Ways to Reduce Carbon Dioxide Emissions

In this world where global warming has reached its pinnacle, it is up to every household to contribute in the lowering of polluting gases. Let's start at home with a few simple steps...

1

Desktop to Laptop

Desktop to Laptop

If every household shifts from desktop to a laptop, the Carbon dioxide emissions can reduce by about 200-300 kgs per year.

2

Geysers

Geysers

Every home needs a geyser for hot water baths. But if the temperature is set at 40 degrees as the maximum point, about 175 kgs of carbon emissions can be reduced anually.

3

Pressure Cookers

Pressure Cookers

Use pressure cookers instead of an open pot or pan for making rice, dal and vegetables. You will end up cutting down an amount of 125 kgs of carbon emissions in a year.

4

Solar Heaters

Solar Heaters

A solar powered water heater is a very good way of reducing carbon emissions by about 700 kgs anually, instead of an electric geyser.

5

Washing Machine

Washing Machine

Use a cold cycle to wash your dirty laundry instead of a hot one at about 60 degrees. This would end up reducing about 98 kgs of carbon emitted anually.

6

CFL

CFL

A single CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lamp) bulb can stop up to 85 kgs of carbon emissions as compared to an ordinary light.

7

Cooking time

Cooking time

Reduce the cooking time on the gas by about 20 minutes everyday, and inhibit up to 84 kgs of carbon emission.

8

Water Consumption

If every household reduced about 100 liters of water use everyday, then about 50 kgs of carbon emission can be restrained.

9

Microwave

Microwave

Reduce your use of microwave by 5 minutes everyday, and feel the change. About 35 kgs of unnecessary carbon emission of 32 kgs would be stopped.

10
