Happy Earth day!!

earth_day_graphics_08In celebration of Earth Day, here are some easy, everyday tips on how you can make your life greener.
Tips of Saving Energy: Buy energy efficient light bulbs; turn off lights and electronics when you leave the room. Unplugging your cell phone charger from the wall when not using it can save you money on your electric bill. Try car-pooling with co-workers, use public transportation, or ride your bike.

Tips on being water efficient: Do full loads of laundry and set the cycle to “cold.” This will safe you money and less water waste on doing small loads. Turn off the faucet when you are washing your face or brushing your teeth. Take 10-15 min showers, instead of a 30 min shower.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: Start a compost pile in your backyard.  Compost Tips

Reuse your water bottle or try avoiding buying bottled water all together. Try reusing everything plastic at least once or buy a reusable/eco-friendly water bottle. If you use plastic grocery bags, recycle them for dog poo bags or for small trashcan liners. Try bringing your own bags to the grocery store and ask for paper bags if you have the option. Go paperless. Consider reading your newspaper or magazines online. Switch to electronic banking and on-line credit card statements, too.
