4 Easy Green Living Tips

In Articles, Home by Lori Hill0 Comments

1. Conserve Energy

Turn off or unplug anything you aren’t using including:

  • Appliances
  • Lights
  • Your idling car

Wash clothes in warm or cold water and always rinse in cold

2. Conserve Water

  • Take 3-minute (or less) showers. Time yourself. See how efficient you can be!
  • Wash dishes by hand or run the dishwasher only when it is full. Scrape plates vs. rinsing in advance

3. Conserve Land

  • Recycle every scrap of paper, newspaper, cardboard and junk mail as well as every plastic, glass or aluminum container
  • Compost food scraps whenever possible
  • Pledge to never throw anything in a landfill – at home or outside the home — that can be recycled, and then recycle
  • Purchase items that make recycling easier, not harder
  • Set a goal of only one 10-gallon kitchen trash bag per week per family of four

4. Conserve Cash

  • Say NO to bottled water. Drink filtered or tap water from a glass or reusable water bottle
  • Set your thermostat to 65 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter and 72 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.  Set your water heater to 120 degrees
