Since the main purpose of introducing a carbon tax is to encourage people to reduce their CO2 emissions, you can reduce the amount you spend on carbon tax if you do just that. Here are a few ways you can reduce your household’s carbon dioxide emissions:

– Change your driving habits. Instead of driving every day, consider carpooling, taking public transit, or biking to work instead — even once a week will help. You can also learn how to drive for fuel efficiency to save on gas and reduce your carbon emissions when you do get behind the wheel.

– If you’re thinking of buying a new vehicle, consider going for a hybrid or electric model, both of which reduce your carbon footprint. Learn the pros and cons of hybrid and pure electric vehicles before you start taking test drives.

– From layering up to installing a smart thermostat in your home, there are plenty of ways to save energy and lower your heating bills in the winter months.

– Limit your air conditioning use in the summer months and consider these seven tips to beat the heat without AC.

– Use cold water for your laundry and hang your clothes to dry instead of using the dryer. Consider these other green cleaning tips, too.
