10 Ways to Live Green

Want to be earth-friendly at home? Here are 10 ways to live green:

  1. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) instead of incandescent bulbs to save energy. CFLs use 75% less energy and last 10 times longer!
  2. Only run the dishwasher when fully loaded to save water.
  3. Make sure the pot size fits the burner when cooking to save energy or gas, depending on the stove.
  4. Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use to conserve energy.
  5. Use eco-friendly, biodegradable laundry detergent and bleach which costs the same as standard products.
  6. Buy gently used furniture and other used items instead of adding to the landfill, consider thrift stores, garage sales, Craigslist, and Freecycle.
  7. Compost!
  8. Change the temperature on your thermostat, each degree lowers the energy bill by 2%!
  9. Tune up the HVAC system every 2 years to save energy.
  10. Stop junk mail to reduce pollution, organizations such as the Direct Marketing Association provides services to opt-out.
