 FFF week 9: Invest in energy-efficient appliances.

I would like to contribute to FFF (Fridays for Future) in my own way: by sharing one concrete action per week that YOU can do, and which I have done, for combating climate change. 

Invest in energy-efficient appliances.

WHY: Since energy-efficient appliances were first implemented nationally in the US in 1987, efficiency standards for dozens of appliances and products have kept 2.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide out of the air. That’s about the same amount as the annual carbon pollution coughed up by nearly 440 million cars.

WHAT CAN I DO: “Energy efficiency is the lowest-cost way to reduce emissions. Change only happens when individuals take action,” Aliya Haq, deputy director of NRDC’s Clean Power Plan initiative, says.. When shopping for refrigerators, washing machines, and other appliances, look for the Energy Star label. It will tell you which are the most efficient.
