Commute to work
Most Americans commute to work, and now there are special programs that provide incentives for both employees and employers to "Get There With Clean Air." Sharing a ride with someone just 2 days a week will reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by 1,590 pounds a year.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Transportation are teaming up with businesses and others to set up "Commuter Choice" programs. These employer-sponsored initiatives can make you eligible for cash and other benefits for greener commuting.

"I filled out the form for the United States, and it said we use 11,474 gallons of water per person per year. When I looked at my actual bill over the past 2 months, and calculated the annual usage for both of us (2 people in our household), it came out to 16,425 gallons per year, which would be 8,212.5 gallons per person per year. Overall, not a bad estimate considering how simple it is to fill out. Are others finding it pretty accurate?"
