1. Change your light bulbs
Buying Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs is an easy way to save money, use less energy, and reduce green house gas emissions. Helps cut back on lightbulb changes too!
2. Filter your own water
Buy a safe, eco-friendly water filter to cut back on buying bottled water. Water bottles waste fossil fuels, could be pricey, and about 75 percent of old water bottles end up in our landfills, lakes, and oceans. Plastic is meant to last forever, not decompose in nature.
3. Walk/Bike to work
The combustion of fossil fuels in cars result in the formation of carbon dioxide, which is released into the air.
4. Start using non-toxic cleaning solutions
Buying natural cleaning products or even just using baking soda and vinegar can reduce a large amount of the harmful chemicals in the air.
5. Unplug cables before you leave the house
Before you go to work or leave the house unplugging your cables is a great way to save electricity.
6. Practice water-saving habits
Quick and simple changes like shorter and less frequent showers or turning the water off when brushing your teeth can save both water and money.
7. Spread the word!
Tell your friends and family to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Awareness is what will help everyone work together on living in a healthier, safer, and more environmentally friendly world.
