“This program showed that even small changes can make a big impact.”
It is easy to think that our actions do not matter and that we represent just one small piece of the picture. But in reality the picture is made up of millions of small pieces.
A simple change that reduces electric usage by $10 per year, across all U.S. households adds up to a billion dollars, annually. Saving even 2 gallons of water per day by turning off the water while you brush your teeth will yield 73 trillion gallons of water annually across the U.S. That is enough water to support 650,000 average households for a year.
One of our aims at Cool Choices is to help people see that their actions do matter and that we are all a part of the solution.
