Going Green

It is possible to save money and go green at the same time. Some of the most important steps will help prevent climate change, and preserve the earth for future generations. Five of the most critical steps are explained below.

1. Conserving Energy

If you simply adjust your thermostat by a few degrees during the summer and winter months, you will be conserving energy and lowering your utility bills. When your incandescent light bulbs have burned out, replace them with CFL’s, or compact fluorescent light bulbs. When your appliances are not being used, unplug them. Smart power strips are also available, and can sense when appliances are not in use and prevent vampire or phantom energy usage. Whenever it is possible, use cold water to wash your clothes. Heating the water accounts for 85 percent of the energy used to wash your clothing in your machine. You can eliminate the energy usage from your dryer by using a clothesline or drying rack.

2. Conserving Water

You will reduce your water usage with shorter showers. This will also decrease your bills for heating and water. A low-flow showerhead is not expensive, and once installed will conserve a lot of energy and water. This will result in lower water bills. Make certain all your faucets have a faucet aerator. They are inexpensive, will conserve water and heat, and your water pressure will remain high. Use plants for your garden that require minimal watering and are drought tolerant. Specific native plants can be found in every area.

3. Bottled Water Usage

Bottled water is expensive, and leads to a sizeable amount of container waste. A water filter will purify your tap water, and is an excellent alternative. You can also carry a reusable bottle with you for water. Aluminum is a better choice than plastic and will easily travel anywhere. This will also save you money.

4. The Cleaning Supplies

You can make non-toxic, effective cleaning supplies. The ingredients are simple and include vinegar, baking soda, soap and lemon. This saves time, money, packaging and the quality of your indoor air.

5. The Electronics

Use your computers, cell phones and additional electronic items for the longest possible length of time. Do not throw them in the trash, but recycle or donate them responsibly. Mercury along with other toxins is contained in e-waste, and has become an increasing environmental problem. Speak to your local government about establishing a hazardous waste and electronics recycling collection event.
