3. Reduce engine idling by five minutes a day.
4. Reduce standby power consumption for home electric appliances by 90 percent.
5. Reduce showering time by one minute a day by each family member.
6. Do not drain the water after a bath but reuse it for washing clothes.
7. Turn off rice cookers after rice is cooked and do not use the warming feature.
8. Eliminate 20 percent of heating and lighting by having family members share the same room more often.
9. Carry your own shopping bag and avoid buying over-packaged vegetables.
