According to the World Wildlife Fund, one of the simplest ways to save energy and reduce carbon emissions is to think small when cooking a meal at home. When you turn on an electric oven, an hour of baking or roasting produces almost 3 pounds of CO2 emissions. When you downgrade to a small countertop toaster oven, that number is cut in half, to 1.3 pounds of emissions. Even better? Reheating last night’s meal in the microwave releases a tiny 0.5 pound of CO2 emissions.
