How Can I Be More Environmentally Conscious Year-Round?

The EPA offers a number of helpful tips:

—Pass on gas! Take public transportation or carpool. Plan your day to reduce trips and environmental emissions.

—Test your home to make sure the air is healthy and free of the colorless, odorless gas Radon.

—Buy vegetables grown locally or plant your own.

—Organize cleanup days in your home.
