Do you want to be part of the green revolution but don’t know quite where to begin? When going green, I suggest taking baby steps to adjust your carbon footprint. Yes, pun totally intended. Going green can be easier than you think. Here are just a few ideas:
Energy-Save energy by programming your thermostat, unplugging appliances when not in use and turn off your computer at night. Install CFL bulbs. Wash clothes in cold water.
Water-Install a low flow shower head as well as a low flow toilet. Opt for purifying your own water with a filter instead of drinking expensive bottled water.
Retail-Be wise about what you buy. Buying in bulk saves not only packaging but money as well. Making your own cleaning products saves on packaging, money AND the quality of the air you breathe. Not to mention, it’s fun to make your own cleaners! Here are a few ideas.
Taking just a few simple steps toward going green will go a long way in the future of your carbon footprint.
