Take the Stairs
Let’s be honest: taking the stairs doesn’t save a ton of energy. But any energy saved is good for the environment. And because elevators run on electricity, taking an elevator might require the mining of uranium or fossil fuel, the operation of a nuclear or fossil fuel plant, transmission to your elevator, and the emission of greenhouse gases.
Not to mention, it’s just plain good for you!
Instead of using the elevator or escalator, try the stairs.

It's a great way to avoid staring at the wall and pretending no one else is on the elevator with you.
