We understand the impact that a changing climate is having on our daily lives. The problem seems overwhelming. But there are many things we can do individually that together will make a difference. See some of the tips below. If you have a tip to share, please email it to info@soundrivers.org.

  • Reduce, reuse and recycle: Yep, that still works!
  • Use water more efficiently: Less water, less energy to pump to your home.
  • Commit to eating more plants and less meat: Livestock contribute 14.5% of global emissions. You can significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions by eating less meat, choosing local foods when possible and buying food with less packaging.
  • Install a smart thermometer and other ways to reduce energy use at home
  • Plant more trees and/or support groups who do
  • Vote! Check out resources like vote411.org
  • Be active in your community and find ways to support youth led movements
