Green living makes sense!

06 November 16

Green living is a way of life for many of us, but for others this is a just another fad that has not caught their interest. Many even debate the facts that global warming exists, perhaps the reality of the polar ice caps melting and rising ocean waters is simply impossible. Regardless where you stand on this debate, living green makes financial sense and the less chemicals we are exposed to every day, I would argue, is better for our own bodies. There are many ways we can go green and here are a few ideas.

Green Cleaning products – Make your own non-toxic, affordable cleaning supplies out everyday items such as vinegar and baking soda.

Conserve Water – Turn off the water when you’re not using it and put a low-flow cap on your sink faucet.

Light Up with LED – Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) use less energy, generate less heat and last longer than other bulbs.

Waste Not – Find creative new ways to reuse old glass jars, bottles, and grocery bags. Check the bottom of all plastics before throwing them away and recycle as much as possible.

Switch Off on Electricity – Save electricity and reduce environmental impact by turning off lights when you leave a room, and using only as much light as you need.
