Happy Earth Day and Getting Greener

Happy Earth Day to all!

Earth Day was created as a holiday to remind everyone that we all need to do out part in order to help reduce the use and damage to the earth. The government created it to promote recycling and conservation of natural resources. It has, of course, become yet another reason for advertisers to try to make more money.

Here are some steps we can all take to lessen your impact on the environment:

  • Install CFL light bulbs in your house
  • Stop using paper/plastic dishware
  • Wash clothes using cold water
  • Line dry clothes
  • Start composting
  • Install a programmable thermostat
  • Do curbside recycling if available
  • Reuse containers when you can
  • Drive less and bike or walk more
  • Combine trips to do errands
  • Eat more organic foods
The list of things you can do goes on and on. The above list are generally easy to do and cost nothing or even save you money! Keeping our consumption down will lessen the overall impact over time and make the world a better place for everyone. We all live here let's keep our "house" clean!

What do you do to be more "green" these days?
