Welcome to aFewSteps!
Thinking about the impacts of climate change and what we can do to reverse it can be overwhelming. Globally, major changes need to be made in how we produce energy, grow our food, and travel. But there are small changes that each of us can make at home that collectively will make a big difference. In addition to addressing climate change, these adjustments to our lives have the added benefit of protecting the environment and our health by reducing pollution, slowing depletion of scarce resources, and protecting biodiversity. Many of these tips also save you money, which is always a good thing! From tips on home improvement and recycling to supporting wildlife, we invite you to explore our website to find “a few steps” that you can take!
Still overwhelmed? Start by exploring our recommended "Ways You Can Save Today." Get answers to specific questions about recycling, and then peruse the Green Tips blog: new tips are published weekly here and in Swarthmore’s local newspaper, The Swarthmorean. Invite your local organization to schedule one of our workshops on home improvements that save energy and climate change.
