5 Green Steps To Try This Month!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

 

 

1.  Turn off your faucet.  An open faucet lets about 5 gallons of water flow every 2 minutes!

2.  Put your computer monitor to sleep.  Screen savers, those funky moving images you get when your monitor is kept on, cost you an extra $50 or more in electricity per year!

3.  THink about your TP and buy recycled toilet paper.  If every household in the U.S. joined you, it would save nearly 1 million trees!

4.  Baby your lotion and powder.  Choose phthalate-free products for your kids (and yourself) so no one is exposed to the harmful chemicals.  Look for it on the label.

5.  Don't sit idle.  Turn your car off if it's going to be sitting for more than 30 seconds so you don't waste gas.

You always have such great tips for us, Kristin. I never realized about the screen "savers", guess they're not really saving us too much. I'm not sure about the TP, I'll have to try some and see - any brand suggestions?

If everyone would just do even one of these, the world would be a lot greener.

Some of them are so easy too!

Hi Kristin:

All are easy as well. 

To me, tip #1 is so important.  Water is very precious. 

Running water just makes me nuts!!!

I agree Toula!  I am good about this one, although sometimes I probably shower a bit too long!

Hi again Kristin:

I actually save the water in jugs, while waiting for the shower water to heat up.

Then I water my plants with it or I pour it into the washer for the next load...

Kristin,

Solid list of tips that are easy to implement. I'm all for saving trees so from now on we got to look for recycled paper.
