Hopefully, you are finishing up your spring cleaning and getting your house, backyard, body, mind and spirit ready for summer. But let’s not allow our forward-looking thinking attitude get ahead of our old New Year’s Resolution to live more “green” this year. Implement these three simple ways to save your health, electricity and gas.
1.) Save Your Health. If you wear your shoes in the house and allow your guests to, consider adopting a “no shoes inside” policy. Dirt and germs attached to bottom of your shoes gets tracked onto your clean, green carpet and floors. This means increased toxins in the air you breathe and on the ground on which you play. Plus, it means less time and effort spent vacuuming, mopping and sweeping.
2.) Save Electricity. Replace your old desktop computer with a compact little laptop. Laptops use less energy when they are plugged in and don’t have to be plugged in constantly. Remember that even when a device is off, if it is plugged in, it is still consuming electricity.
3.) Save Gas. Do you have stuff in your trunk you haven’t seen in over six months? Cleaning out your trunk and backseat will rid your car of unnecessary pounds, saving gas.
Use three simple tips to revamp your commitment to green living. Even if you have fallen out of the habit recently, even the smallest steps can get you back on track.
