  1. Recycle Pesky Plastics: Our plastic recycling system is broken. Check out Terracyle for free programs for your hard-to-recycle goods.
  2. Ditch Single-Use Items: Practice bringing your own utensils and drinking vessels to avoid single-use plastics! Cut down on takeout waste: DeliverZero offers reusable containers to order your food in! Simply wash and return after you’ve finished your meal.
  3. Reduce Food Waste: Food waste contributes 8–10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Composting is key to maintaining healthy, balanced soils. NYC has over 200 drop-off composting sites — you can find your nearest site here.
  4. Clean out your inbox: A surprising virtual tip — emails are stored in massive computer systems which require tons of energy and resources to operate. Clear out your inbox and unsubscribe from mailing lists from time to time.
  5. Access your energy data: Sign up for GridRewards to learn key times to reduce energy consumption and track your carbon footprint!
