I found this today that I had copied a few years ago from the source listed below. I stumbled on some more lists like this today that I can also post, but since I have to type them up first, I won't do it now.
But for now:
Ten tips to help heal the planet
This year, the National Audubon Society compiled a list of ways to improve our planet. Based on conversations with America's top scientists, the society is encouraging individuals to make simple changes in daily routines to minimize human influence on the Earth's environment.
"If each person who reads Audubon (magazine) does just one of the resolutions, that will be 450,000 people who will have acted in some way to preserve what we have and they will be more aware of how their actions (or inactions) affect the planet," says Audobon's Lisa Gosselin.
Below are Audobon's top 10 recommendations. Read carefully; some of the suggestions may surprise you.
1.Say "no" to exotics. To help the plight of endangered species, don't house exotic pets or purchase products that are made using animals at risk.
2. Go veggie. Vegetarian diets put less strain on the environment. Livestock guzzles nearly 50 percent of all water consumed in the United States and eats nearly 16 pounds of grass and grain for each pound of beef produced.
3. Coffee in the shade. Buying shade-grown coffee supports the preservation of rain forests and safeguards the habitat of many species.
4. Be picky, not fishy. When choosing fish to eat, avoid over-fished species such as swordfish.
5. Be heard. Voice your opinion by supporting local and federal legislation to protect the environment and its endangered species. Every person at your town's planning-board meetings can make a big difference.
6. Pay your dues. Some states offer the option of contributing part of your income tax to fund the protection of non-game species. Look for this option on your next form.
7. Buy the plate that pays. Some states donate revenue from special license plates to wildlife conservation programs. License plates with a conservation theme also help spread an important message.
8. Conserve energy. Buying energy-efficient appliances can significantly decrease energy use at home. If every US household was equipped with the most energy-efficient refrigerator available today, 10 power plants would quickly become obsolete.
9. Don't be afraid of the dark. Electricity used to generate light produces a large amount of carbon dioxide, which in turn contributes to global warming. Use timers or movement sensors to minimize electricity use. Fluorescent light bulbs outlast incandescent bulbs and yield significantly lower levels of carbon dioxide.
10. Stay cool. Make sure your furnace is working at optimal efficiency and keep the temperature as low as possible. Decreasing the temperature by even a few degrees lowers carbon dioxide emissions by hundreds of pounds over the course of a year.
