Tips for Reducing Your Green Footprint

March 31, 2017

Spring is Almost Here: Time to Get Rid of Clutter

Let’s talk about a few basic choices we can make that lessen the impact we have on our earth.

  1. WALK, BIKE, CARPOOL, USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: If just once a day/month or week you made the choice to do one of these rather than hop in your car, you would be making a difference. And if we all did that it would certainly add up!
  2. CAULK, CAULK, and more CAULK: Buy a case; get out your caulking gun, and start scouting your home for all the cracks/gaps. Seal it up… it can make a huge difference in the energy needed to heat or cool your home! That’s green for your wallet and the environment.
  3. LET THERE BE LIGHT: There are many great choices for energy reducing light bulbs, including dimmable bulbs. LED’s have grown in popularity, and as a result, there are some incredible deals on CFL’s as well. For outdoor lights, motion detectors are a great way to ensure you’re only using them when you need them.
  4. RECYCLE: We know there are still people who don’t recycle on a regular basis. Can you or someone you know, be encouraged to include this as a REGULAR part of your life? Once you get it the habit, it’s easy!
  5. WATER-a precious resource: How can you reduce your water use? Low use fixtures, desert friendly plants, efficient use of showers/laundry/dishwashing…any other ideas?
  6. OTHER IDEAS: These are just a few ideas. The list goes on and on…

Overall, a great way to be greener is to ask yourself this simple question: What changes can you make to live more “green?” and then get busy!
