© Center for transforming India No neckties a good Idea By not wearing neckties the body temperature can be reduced by 2-3 degrees centigrade there by saving the cooling costs and reducing energy requirement therefore lesser greenhouse effects –The bureaucrats of the European Commission have taken a radical step toward reducing their carbon footprint and halting the progress of global warming: Neckties have been declared "optional." The logic is that tie-free men will tolerate greater heat, and by setting the air conditioners just one Celsius degree higher, they can cut their 56,000 metric tons of annual carbon dioxide emissions by 10 percent. –Japanese Govt encouraging employees that between June 1 and Sept. 30, to work without neckties and jackets.
© Center for transforming India Up the temperature Air conditioners account for 30 to 50 percent of office buildings' power consumption. Use it wisely. The higher the temperature less the energy consumption –China running a "26 C" campaign, since 2005;applies to schools, office buildings, supermarkets, restaurants, shopping malls, government agencies and private owners of public buildings. It is estimated to save 300 million kilowatt-hours of electricity if all building thermostats were set to 26 degrees Celsius.

© Center for transforming India Manage the bin Waste Segregation- Is an important step is reducing and recycling of solid waste. The segregation of waste at point of origin can infact vastly reduce the requirements of landfill and help is productive recycling of waste IS it difficult NO it requires just a small change in habit Reducing waste at all stages of production will result in less waste to landfill and consequently a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions due to the decomposition of waste. Producing less waste will also result in reduced costs associated with storing and transporting waste.
© Center for transforming India Loose the Shirt Japan's "Cool Biz" campaign encourages office workers to lose their suits and ties and keep the thermostat at 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit). Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe recently set a good example by instructing his cabinet members to wear traditional Japanese short- sleeved shirts instead of business wear.

Freezing, canning, drying, and packaging are green house gas contributors Transporting food throughout the world emits 30,800 tons of greenhouse gas every year. The average conventional food product travels about 1500 miles to get to your grocery store. Be a Cooler: Buy whole foods. Purchase loose fruits and vegetables (rather than bagged or shrink-wrapped), buy bulk beans, pasta, cereals, seeds, nuts, and grains. food

Each fat person is responsible for about one tonne of carbon dioxide emissions a year more on average than each thin person Researchers estimate that a lean population of one billion would emit 1,000 million tonnes less carbon dioxide equivalents per year compared to a fat one. One more reason to shed those extra pounds
