Green Tips for the New Year!




1. Ditch the plastic. Carry a reusable bag with you for groceries, shopping, and take-out food. For extra points, take your own food containers to restaurants and spare the Styrofoam that is often still used.

2. Tuck in your computer at night. Turn off your screen saver and cut even more energy that your computer uses by putting it in sleep mode when it isn't in use.

3. Clean with green. Clean your home with non-toxic and natural cleaning products. Just about anything can be cleaned with white vinegar, baking soda and a few drops of lemon.

4. Think globally, buy locally. Buy locally grown food that's in season. Food that hasn't traveled thousands of miles to your plate is fresher and tastier, and buying local food drastically cuts down on global-warming pollution.

5. Don't be a drip. Fix leaky faucets. A faucet that drips once each second can waste over 8 gallons of water per day and more than 3,000 gallons per year.

6. Turn dollars into sense. Save on energy consumption and your electric bill by turning down your thermometer and throwing on your favorite sweater or sweatshirt.
