Earth Day: Think Globally... Act Locally
April 22, 2007
Earth Day may be celebrated on April 22, but the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is dedicated to providing environmentally responsible energy solutions everyday. The President's Advanced Energy Initiative challenges Americans to change the way we power our homes, offices, and vehicles; and his recent Executive Order sets aggressive goals for decreasing the federal government's energy intensity.
As individuals, improving the environment is something we can do everyday and we can start by using less energy. This is as easy as considering our own individual choices to reduce energy use by selecting efficient products; driving hybrid or fuel efficient cars; changing to compact fluorescent bulbs and other actions that help us maintain a high quality of life. "Think Globally... Act Locally: Make the Clear Energy Choice Every Day!"
