ENERGY STAR: Changing the Energy Conservation Conversation


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s mission for more than four decades has been to protect the environment and communities from harmful pollution. So far, great advances have been made in cleaning up our air, water and land. Pollution controls for vehicle and factory emissions have created cleaner operating conditions. But more can be done. All of us can prevent pollution through simple actions we can take every day. After all, the simplest way to remove pollution is to prevent it in the first place!
