Go Green in April!
April 24, 2019
April is the month when we celebrate Earth Day and it’s the
perfect opportunity to consider the actions you can take for environmentally
responsible and greener living. The United States
Environmental Protection Agency offers a broad list of ways to
impact the environment making cleaner choices from individuals recycling and gardening,
to entire communities implementing sustainable living programs.
Some of the steps you can take to reduce your carbon footprint are:
- Reduce Waste – Recycling and reducing the things you dispose of, including food, helps to reduce the size of landfills and the methane gas they produce.
- Energy efficient products for the home – there are a large variety of energy efficient and connected home products which help you manage your energy spend. AEP Energy offers a host of energy-efficient and connected-home products in AEP Energy Reward Store! Enroll in a traditional or renewable plan and earn Reward Dollars to redeem in our online marketplace.
- Choose renewable energy options for your home, business, and community.
- Live Sustainably with smart growth, green programs and sports, and monitor your carbon footprint with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Household Carbon Footprint Calculator.
But most importantly, get outside and enjoy a little sun and
fresh air! Taking a brisk walk, a bike
ride, or tossing a frisbee or a football is not only healthy, but fun! It’s a great way to appreciate nature and
this planet we call home.
