AUGUST CLEAN EARTH TIP: Green Power

The U.S. has one of the highest per capita greenhouse gas emission rates in the world--and the problem is getting worse. 


By 2020 emissions from electricity could be as much as 160 percent higher than in 1990 (the benchmark year for the Kyoto Protocol). Yet for a carbon-conscious business the solution is simple. Your energy provider can source all or part of the electricity you use from renewable sources, such as solar, wind, and hydro. Though it costs a little more, your money supports crucial investment in renewable energy. Buying green power also entitles you to advertise your commitment and encourage other businesses to adopt more sustainable practices.
