In honor of Earth Day, I have a few easy tips on going green:
Tip #1 Take a shorter shower. In doing so you will save water and the energy it takes to heat it which in turn reduces carbon dioxide emissions.
Tip #2 By allowing more natural light into your home, you can lower the use of electricity; artificial light adds up to almost 15% of the home's total electricity.
Tip #3 Stop adding waste - Instead of using a paper or plastic cup, invest in a mug and use that throughout the day.
Tip #4 Go Organic and don't worry about eating or drinking added hormones.
Tip #5 Individual servings at grocery stores use up more packaging. When possible, purchase the family size.
Tip #6 Purchase a canvas bag or two and bring it to the grocery store to avoid using their plastic or paper bags
My favorite new purchace is this organic cotton bag that I use when I go shopping
I know I'm a total tree hugger.. but you know you love me!
sorry for all the posts today. I was bored at home waiting for Shawn to get home from playing soccer.. I knew if I laid down I would fall right asleep, so I have been posting to keep me awake!
