Six Simple Ways To Go Green This Earth Day!


Buying hybrid cars and installing solar panel are great ways to help save energy, but not an option for everyone who wants to do their part in the “Green” movement without busting their budget.
Try these simple and inexpensive ways to help protect Mother Earth.

1.) Install a laundry line
Why waste energy, and money, using the clothes dryer when the sun and fresh air will dry your clothes for free.

2.) Skip the individual water bottles
An estimated 3 million plastic bottles are thrown away every day. Buy a water filter or purifier for your home and take a filled reusable bottle with you to the gym, to work, or in the car.

3.) Install a low-flow showerhead
Install a low-flow showerhead and cut your showers down by two or three minutes. Annually, this will save thousands of gallons of water.

4.) Change your light bulbs
Using low energy compact fluorescent bulbs will save energy. Use a frosted glass shade over fluorescent bulbs for a brighter room.

5.) Save Energy
Get in the habit of turning off the lights, computer and all electronics when not in use. Also, turn off the car: sitting in park-gear with the engine idling uses gas and gets you zero miles to the gallon.

Use environmentally friendly cleaning products

6.) Use environmentally friendly cleaning products
Use environmentally friendly cleaning products. Vinegar, baking soda, lemon, and plain soap and hot water are terrific non-toxic cleaners. Plus, there are many safe cleaning products now on the market.

And of course, buy organic cotton products, especially for babies. Organic cotton protects babies precious skin from exposure to harmful chemicals, and buying organic clothing protects the environment from the harsh realities of cotton farming.
