Choosing Bioheat® Fuel Makes a BIG Impact

Bioheat® fuel is a sustainable energy blend that reduces your carbon footprint when it comes to the home heating and energy sector. It’s better, cleaner, and safer than traditional heating fuels and works in your existing heating equipment, so there are no messy and expensive conversions required. Best of all, you can begin reducing your carbon footprint right now when you choose Bioheat® fuel to heat your home.


Drive & Fly Less Often 

Walking, biking, carpooling, or taking public transportation, such as a bus or train, where possible, is a great way to get where you need to go while reducing emissions. You can also consider avoiding flying—or if you must fly, you can offset your travel by supporting an environmental cause you care about after calculating your flight’s carbon emissions.


Compost Your Food Scraps & Yard Waste

While your mind is in the kitchen, consider starting a composting routine. Composting is an excellent alternative to simply throwing away your food scraps and yard waste. Not only does it reduce the number of materials that would otherwise go to landfills, but it also produces a free, high-quality additive that helps you build healthier soil.


Perform a Home Energy Audit

Whether you conduct an energy audit of your home or have a professional conduct one for you, you’ll pinpoint problem areas where your energy usage is high. This will help you identify ways to make your home more energy efficient, such as adding insulation or replacing windows. You can also install a programmable thermostat as part of your home energy audit, which allows you to control the temperature inside your home precisely at all times.


Invest in Reusables

Reusable grocery bags, produce bags, utensils, straws, napkins, paper towels, coffee filters, and other commonly disposable items can significantly reduce the amount of waste you produce. In addition, it shrinks the amount of product you have to purchase, which results in fewer resources required to produce, transport, and sell you the single-use product in the first place.


Make Small Daily Changes

There are a variety of other ways to reduce your impact on the planet and shrink your carbon footprint. Browse this bulleted list of ideas and pick a few that will fit into your daily routine:

  • Recycle plastic, metal, and cardboard
  • Reuse paper bags and note sheets; reduce the amount you print out
  • Plan no-cook meals that don’t require energy use for stoves or ovens
  • Turn off lights and unplug electronics when not in use
  • Purchase your favorite foods in bulk to reduce the product-to-packaging ratio
  • Switch to a low-flow showerhead to reduce the energy used to repurify the water
