If you’re committed to making a change (or just to saving money) you can get a professional energy audit for your home or office. This will give you a real idea of the changes you need to make.
Just another reason to reconsider my post about reusable diapers.
Since we are inbetween the season of AC and the season of heaters I thought I would give you a quick money saving, and environmentally friendly tip. When the AC or heat is on make sure all of your windows and doors are shut. The more temperature controlled air you let out the harder your units will have to work. If you want to enjoy a day of nice weather simply turn off your system before opening doors and windows to let the fresh air in.
I know I’ve made this post before guys but this is important. If you haven’t gone out and gotten yourself a reusable water bottle yet we’ve got a problem. Using plastic disposable water bottles is terrible for the environment and they may have BPA in them which is bad for your health. Find yourself a BPA free water bottle and start filling it up.
An estimated 10 million Britons still suck down cigarettes faster than a troupe of aging rockers in rehab straining to cough out another hit tune. In the UK, cigarette butts sully streets and parks everywhere. What if this nasty habit could contribute to, rather than subtract from, the beauty of outdoor spaces? Cigg Seeds aim to do precisely that. A variety of smokes outfitted with biodegradable filters that contain wild flower seeds, they sprout and blossom into wildflower meadows when finished and flicked, or deposited on the ground. Butts into blooms. Cigarettes into snowdrops—the floral not frozen variety, to be sure.
There are ways to do just about everything greener, and that includes video gaming! Instead of buying the hard copy you can buy and download many games directly to your console. This goes for computer games as well many have both a downloadable and a physical version. Before picking up a copy check to see if there is a downloadable option. (I am not referring to bootleg copies of a game and I do not promote or endorse downloading illegal copies of games.)
When you’re taking a shower turn the water on to get yourself wet then turn it off while you lather your hair or soap up your body. The water savings WILL add up.
