Environmental imbalances are the biggest challenges that the world is currently subjected to. There is an immense need for the creation of Eco-friendly zones for the better cause of the mankind and wellbeing of one and all on our “One Earth”. The need of the hour is to throw light on the social awareness concept with regard to the prevention of the environment degradation. The “Carbon Credit” is the new currency and each carbon credit represents one ton of Carbon dioxide either removed from the atmosphere or saved from being emitted. Carbon credits have been a topic in the high society and industrial community these days, but it is equally applicable to a common man who can get credits due to his altered life styles and his practices. According to “Patrick Gonzalez”, a Nature Conservancy climate scientist each, person can make a difference because one small positive act multiplied millions of times produces immense benefits. In this paper it is discussed and highlighted how a common man can earn Carbon credits with minimum effort. The study examines the life styles of citizens in selected communities along with the domestic energy audit in Indian context.
