Cool Websites: 1 Million Women

We all know that we need to improve our energy usage - and most of us want to - but it can be quite hard to figure out exactly what you can do and then hold yourself accountable for it.

Well very cool website 1 Million Women comes to the rescue with a slick, easy-to-use, site that helps you figure out what you can change around the home with your own family, and then gives you the ability to check back in and report on your achievements. And the big gold star? Your very own C02 impact that you can track over time.

The goal of the site is to inspire 1 million Australian women to take practical action on climate change by cutting 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse pollutant causing global warming.

I signed up and found some great tips that I've been able to implement at home straight away and it's going to feel great going back in a week, a month, a year to see what kind of an impact just our little family has had on C02 emissions.

There is also a social networking aspect to the site that I didn't participate in, but if you are interested there are lots of ways to get more involved. Or, like me, you can simply use the site's tools to help manage your own energy use. I hope you like it. Join here now to increase the number from the 13,000+ plus on the site to 1M!
