In honor of Earth Day and every day. Here are some simple choices you can blend into your everyday life at work and home to help care for our planet.
These are a few our personal favorites. If you can choose one you’re on the road to a “greener” lifestyle.
2} Plant something! Nothing cleans the air inside like a live plant.
3} Stop using disposable bags, use the cloth bags from the supermarket. We love them and some have fun colors and designs! (or at least make returning the plastic bags to the store for recycling part of your routine).
4} Shop and Donate to your local thrift shop. This is win – win. Hard to find items are always at the thrift shop! Someone else just might need that perfectly usable sweater in aqua from Aunt Mary that you have outgrown! Less waste in the landfill, more money in your pocket!
5} Pay your bills online, SAY NO to paper bills. Greener, less waste, save time.
7} Wash laundry in cold water instead of hot. Believe it or not, cold water works better and leaves less soap
residue in clothing.
8} Turn off lights when you leave the room.
9} Rechargeable batteries. Not only are you saving money, your creating less waste.
10} Turn the computers off after hours! This was the hard one for us, but we have saved a lot of dollars doing this simple task.
Small changes make a better Earth.
