  • Buy efficient household appliances
  • Replace incandescent lamps with compact fluorescent bulbs that use one-fourth of the electricity
  • Build houses in ways that let in maximum daylight
  • Sodium vapour lights for street lights
  • Keep cars well tuned with regular servicing. Use fuel-efficient vehicles. Don't let engine idle. Form car pools.
  • Manage vehicular traffic better. France, Italy have a 'No Car Day' and limited city parking to alternate days for odd and even licensed numbers.
  • Turn off all lights, fans, ACs, TVs, PCs and other electrical gadgets when not being used
  • Plant trees in the neighbourhood
  • Recycle all cans, bottles and plastic bags; buy recycled items
  • Generate as little trash as possible; trash in landfills emit large quantities of methane and, when incinerated, carbon dioxide
