Here are a few tips for a more “green” lifestyle.
1.) Walk, Hike, or Ride a Bike
If you (and your friends/family/neighbors) occasionally rode a bike or walked for an errand instead of hopping in the car, over 70 million gallons of fuel could be saved each year in the U.S. alone! There is also the added benefits of fresh air & exercise.
2.) Give Weeds a “Hand”
Herbicides are not a great way to control weeds, the chemicals are really bad for the environment. Buy a good pair of gloves & garden tools to remove weeds by hand. Choose natural alternatives to pesticides to get rid of pests.
3.) Lighten Your Energy Bill
If you just can’t go solar yet – try new compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). CFLs last 10 times longer than the old style of light bulb, they use 1/4 of the energy & produce 90% less heat. Just be very careful handling and disposing of them.
4.) Recycle, Reduce, Reuse
Return hangers to the cleaners, donate clothing & computers to charity or friends/family, pack lunches & drinks in reusable containers… there are hundreds of easy things like this that you can do. Every little bit helps.
