HOW TO LIVE GREEN:

The items that homeowners use the most are energy and cleaning products. We are spending so much time on how to survive and fix the economy that we tend to forget about other important things. We have a responsibility in doing our share to make the earth a healthier place. Here are some great tips on how to contribute:

 

·         We use a lot of cleaning products. You can buy earth-friendly cleaning products. You can also use baking soda, vinegar and lemon to clean tiles and other surfaces;

·         Do not leave lights on if not necessary. You can help to save energy;

·         Do not let the water run for longer as what is necessary. Preserve water;

·         Save money by insulating you home. It keeps hot air in when cold and the cold air in when hot;

·         Make sure there are no cracks and openings by the window frames and doors’

·         A laptop uses less energy than a desktop and it also saves you space;

·         Some paints are toxic. Zero-voc paints are safe and cost a little bit more than the traditional paints;

·         If you are not using an appliance then leave it unplugged;

·         Use free and clear laundry detergent;

·         Energy Star rated appliances meet a strict standard of energy usage;

·         Use CFL light bulbs. They last longer and cost a little bit more initially, but can save money on the long run.

·         Wash in cold water and save energy;

·         Most cities have recycling centers and bins. Here you can dump metal, glass, and paper, cardboard and plastic. Do your recycling and save the environment.

 

With a little extra trouble we can all contribute in order to keep the world safe and clean. Every bit helps.
