39. How many household members are members of an environmental, sustainability, or climate action group?

You certainly don't need to join an environmental or climate-related group in order to make a big difference. You can do that perfectly well acting as one person or one household. However, if you'd like to get together with others who are taking climate-friendly actions, you might find a group that sounds right for you in our Group Profiles section.

40. Does your household compost biodegradable waste?

If food scraps, garden waste, and other biodegradable waste ends up in land-fill, it rots and produces methane (a greenhouse gas that is even more damaging than carbon dioxide). In contrast, if we put all such waste in a compost bin, worm farm, bokashi bucket, or similar, and then add it to our gardens, we achieve healthier soil. Healthy soil not only grows food better, it also is a more effective carbon sink than poor soil. See The Science of Composting for easy to follow tips.

This survey covers a selection of the most common actions that contribute towards a safe climate, but there are numerous other beneficial actions too. If you want more ideas about things you can do, have a look at the Eco Era Sustainable Living Guide.

If you have tips about other climate-friendly actions that you take, tell us about them in Our Blog.
