Low Carbon Diet Teams

This is a fun, accessible, easy to use program that shows how to dramatically reduce your CO2 output. With simple changes to actions you take every day, you’ll learn how to reduce your annual household CO2 output by at least 15%.


Americans – only 5% of the world's population – consume 33% of the planet's resources and waste up to 75%, due to inefficiency and lack of awareness. Households directly consume one third of these resources, and indirectly use much of the rest through the purchase of products and services. How we live is a big part of the problem. It can also be a big part of the solution, if we adopt more environmentally sustainable lifestyles. That means exercising more care in our use of the Earth's finite resources (trees, water, energy, minerals, land) to ensure that there will be enough left for our children and their children.


The team can be made up of your household family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, or members of your faith community or civic organization. If you have a group of interested individuals, you can start a team whenever you wish.
