(NAPSI)—Whether it’s Earth Day or any other day, it can be a good time to ask just how “earth minded” your household is. Many of our daily activities such as driving a car, using electricity, or disposing of waste can cause greenhouse gas emissions, which in turn create a carbon footprint. The question is, what does that footprint look like for you?
By taking the new Think Earth online Environmental Survey, families can assess their environmental habits and get practical tips on how to conserve energy, save water, and reduce waste and pollution.
The free survey can be taken in just a few minutes on a computer, smartphone or tablet. Once it’s completed, respondents receive personalized recommendations specifically targeted to their survey answers. These recommendations can help families reduce their environmental footprint and, in some cases, even save money. Home and school versions of the survey can be found at www.thinkearth.org/surveys.
The Environmental Surveys were created by the Think Earth Environmental Education Foundation. Founded in 1988, the nonprofit organization developed comprehensive lesson plans to teach environmental awareness to elementary and middle-school students. Educators can download these free lesson plans at www.thinkearth.org.
