Switch to a green power energy plan
When you sign-up to most energy providers, you will be put on their default plan which is most often, you guessed it, powered by fossil fuels. Using your energy provider portal or by making an old school phone call you can find out the rates for changing to a green energy plan.
This will source your electricity from renewables when possible, and offset any fossil fuels used when there is not enough renewable energy in the grid. It does cost a bit more (anywhere from $0.50-$2.00 extra a day depending on usage) so be sure you are happy with the rates before switching, but it makes a massive impact.

One of the easiest and most inspiring ways to create change on this list. Documentaries can move us in a way that nothing else can. Films such as these have inspired many to get started on their own sustainability journey!
