What You Can Do
Do you want to help build a sustainable community in Southern Nevada? Can your business help promote conservation and save our precious natural resources? Is there anything your friends, neighbors and co-workers can do to help make Southern Nevada a national model of environmental and energy sustainability?
Of course there is! First, you can join together with Green Chips and our larger number of partners including municipal agencies and major employers to work together to move the needle of sustainability on a regional scale!
Green Chips encourages everyone in Southern Nevada – residents, businesses, and visitors alike – to:
Conserve Energy. When you aren’t using lights and appliances, turn them off. Perform an energy audit of your home or business and invest in energy efficiency. A few simple steps can dramatically reduce your energy bills and your carbon footprint.
Conserve Water. Reduce unnecessary water usage by landscaping with local and native low-water use plants. Check your home and business for hidden leaks.
Recycle and Reuse. It’s amazing what you can recycle – paper, plastic, glass and metal are just a start. Don’t throw away items that can be reused – if you no longer use something, donate it to a charitable organization rather than putting it in the trash.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint. Green Chips supports and helps finance projects that will reduce carbon emissions by businesses and residents in Southern Nevada. Our ultimate goal is to help the region achieve carbon neutrality.
