  • Turn your thermostat down by 1 degree

  • Join a car pool, get our your bicycle, take a bus, catch a train or walk for one journey a week
  • Take showers instead of baths, or bathe with a friend ;)
  • View your leftover food as ingredients and get creative in the kitchen

Once you sign up to 10:10 you’ll get weekly emails with tips on how you can reduce your carbon footprint throughout 2010.

The idea is that taking small steps at a time is more achievable than a sudden change. In addition, if everyone does a little bit, it adds up collectively to significant global change!
