Living Green in Vancouver, Washington

With Earth Day just around the corner on April 22nd, blog posts about recycling, reducing your carbon footprint and living green will abound....sometimes it is hard to wrap your mind around how to best live your life and save the planet.

"Living Green" has become a common term or pop phrase, especially living here in the great North West. Our community takes great pride in how we take action to make a difference.  We use our cloth grocery sacks and keep the thermostat turned down to do our part in small ways, but what are some bigger ways we can embrace this lifestyle?

Many home owners and home builders in the NW have taken "living green" to heart and applied it to how they approach home remodeling and construction.

The more we share what we are doing in our own neighborhood...the more everyone can incorporate this lifestyle to reduce the carbon footprint.

Replace standard incandescent lightbulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's) and save 75% of lighting costs. Unplug electronics, battery chargers and other equipment when not in use. Taken together, these small items can use as much power as your refrigerator!

I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!
