It’s that time of the year for New Year’s resolutions and we’re challenging you to make clean air a priority in 2020.

Whether you’re looking for easy, moderate or advanced resolutions, there are countless ways to make the clean energy future a reality. Some of our favorite and most cost-effective resolutions include planting a tree, riding your bike to work, or combining online orders to cut down on air pollution from shipping. And while these simple actions may seem small, they make a big difference.

More advanced ways to commit to cleaner air include driving an electric vehicle, utilizing solar power, or switching to energy-efficient home appliances. Switching to an electric lawn mower, for example, can significantly reduce your carbon footprint since running a gas-powered lawn mower for just an hour creates the same amount of pollution as driving for 350 miles.

No matter which way you commit to cleaner air or energy-efficiency this year, every little bit counts. A clean energy future is attainable when we all work together to achieve it.
