4 Ways To Live More Green!

Small actions can create huge results, especially when it comes to the environment. There are so many ways we can help our environment and our wallet by being more conservative with our usages of the things around us. Here are 4 easy ways for you to become more green around your home:

 Changing A Light Bulb

Installing a compact fluorescent light bulb in your home is the easiest way to save energy as well as money! Unlike incandescent bulbs, fluorescent bulbs convert most of the energy they use into light rather than producing heat.

 Do Full Loads of Laundry

Instead of washing a few items of clothing at a time, try doing larger loads of laundry to help save water. By combining half-loads, choosing sorter cycles, and using cold or warm rather than hot water will rack up savings quickly.

 Use Reusable Bags

By using reusable bags you do not have to take plastic bags which become very harmful to the planet. You can easily get reusable bags at any grocery store and some stores will even give you a discount when you shop using reusable bags!

 Eat Locally

Support your local farmers by shopping locally for your produce. Buying locally grown foods can also reduce the pollution and energy used from transporting, storing, and refrigerating foods.
