In addition to making choices to switch to renewable energy sources for electricity, heating, and transportation, recycling, reusing materials, and reducing consumption also helps us build a more sustainable community.
The best way to reduce energy use is not to use it to begin with. Check out the resources from the Narberth Journey to Zero Waste website and Instagram for more info on ways to reduce consumption and waste.
