    • Commit To Reusable Drink Containers

      • The amount of plastic water bottles used in today’s society is excessive to say the least. According to an article by The Guardian, we humans are buying 1 million plastic bottles per minute. That is 525,600,000,000 bottles per year. Try to imagine the size that actually is. Try to do your part and stop using plastic bottles as much as you possibly can. Not only will this help the environment, it’ll help your pocketbook too.

go green recycle plastic

    • Recycle Your Plastic

      • You might think that using that many water bottles isn’t a problem, after all plastic is recyclable. There is a statistic that may interest you because as it turns out 91% of all plastic is not recycled worldwide.  This is obviously an astonishingly large number, especially considering that literally billions of tons of plastic have been made over the past decades. Hopefully this figure is large enough to spur some action on your part. Recycle everything you can, especially plastic!

Go green thermostat

    • Get A Programmable Thermostat

      • Unsurprisingly, the largest use for energy in most homes is heating & cooling. Those who switch to a programmable thermostat can see savings of up to $180 per year. This is a simple and easy way to save money & energy. It’s good for your pocketbook and the environment both. Not to mention, the simplest of these can be self-installed in under an hour.

go green garden

    • Choose Native Plants For Your Garden

      • When choosing plants, scope out the ones that are already made for your environment. Those plants will take less water, pesticides, and fertilizers as they are adapted specifically for your environment. This may sound difficult to do, but the person you buy the plants from will definitely know what is local and what is not. All you need to do is ask them!

go green solar

    • Consider Solar Energy

      • In most cases people are not prepared to make the financial commitment to solar energy. However, some companies offer the ability to lease these out. When you rent solar panels an added benefit is any maintenance falls on the company, so you don’t have to bother with the headache of fixing anything that goes wrong.

Go Green Compost

  • Composting

    • There are a few ways to do this. You can either invest in your own backyard compost or, if that’s not an option, you can see if your city has a compost program. This turns food & yard waste into fuel once more! Nothing more green than that.
