Being green at no cost


Our list of things you can do at home to be green and at no additional cost:

  • Compost your organic waste.
  • Turn off the faucet while you are brushing your teeth and/or shaving your face.
  • Unplug the vampire electric appliances after each use.
  • Reduce what you buy...Do you really need that bag of potato chips or chocolate chips?
  • Watch one day less TV.
  • Reduce the thermostat by 2 degrees in winter.
  • Are you recycling all that you can: Paper, plastic and glass?
  • Take your bicycle instead of the car.
  • Recycle your electronics.
  • Volunteer at a soup kitchen.
  • Donate furniture to a local shelter.
Wow... the little things we can do that can impact not only our environment, but also our community and personal well being. That is what makes it easy to be green on a budget.
