But how much of a difference can we make with small changes in our everyday lives? While some minor tweaks may seem insignificant, other choices that could make a bigger impact—like becoming a no-vehicle family relying solely on public transportation or alternative methods—would require a major lifestyle overhaul that many folks simply cannot afford these days.

Fortunately, there are many eco-friendly energy options to choose from, and you can decide what works best for your situation. Believe it or not, there are even higher-level carbon-reduction steps you can take that are easy and quite affordable, too! Below, we’ll discuss some of the ways that you can make changes consciously, with the full knowledge of the impact—or lack thereof—on your carbon footprint.

For instance, recycling keeps trash out of landfills and the oceans.

Major Impact Energy Overhauls

Some of the most impactful changes you can make to shrink your carbon footprint involve activities that reduce harmful emissions by 2000 pounds or more, annually, including:

Discount Power Green Energy Plans Make a BIG Impact!

Choosing a 100% renewable energy plan can help create a greener, cleaner future. When you switch to one of our Green Plans, 100% of your electric usage will be offset by carbon-neutral, wind, or hydroelectric sources. Your existing utility will continue to deliver power to your home or business, send you your bill, and respond during any outages. But that electricity is replenished by Discount Power with the energy you can feel good about using!

Are you paying more money for an energy plan that’s NOT offset by eco-friendly sources—in other words, a plan that isn’t green, and doesn’t reduce your carbon footprint? We make it easy and safe to save on your electricity and natural gas bills, all while helping you reduce your carbon footprint and feel good about what your hard-earned funds are going towards. If you’re tired of seeing your utility bills fluctuate without any control over what’s happening, you’ll love us.
