Green Tips

It's the little things that count, and it's the little things that can make all the difference

Make an Organic Cleaner

If special eco-cleaners are too pricey where you live, don’t buy them. Instead, mix up some vinegar, water and any essential oil that you like to make your own for much less.

Regulate Your Heat

Turning Down Your Central Heating Thermostat By 1 Degree Can Save Up To 10% On Fuel Bills. Put on a light sweater indoors and turn off your header and AC when you're gone to save energy.

Water at Night Instead

Water Your Lawn Between Midnight And 6am To Minimize Water Lost Due To Evaporation. It Also Helps Keep Your Plants From Wilting!

Save a Little Plastic

Instead of using bottled water, try buying a water filter for your home and bring a reusable water bottle to your office. You can even decorate and personalize your bottle to make it your own.

Bike to Work Day, Everyday

Carbon dioxide is the number one contributor to the greenhouse effect, and cars produce about 30% of the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions. Consider biking, carpooling, or using public transportatoin instead.

Finish Your Plate

Make sure to separate your food waster from your landfill waste. Organic food waste breaks down much slower when compacted under layers of inorganic matter and can cause issues with wildlife near landfill areas.

It's Raining...Money?

When nature is already providing water, you can save both money and water. Install a rain shutoff device, soil moisture sensor or humidity sensor to help stop irrigation when it is not required.

Electronics' Second Lives

Electronic devices such as computers and phones often contain rare earth metals which can contaminate the soil if not disposed of properly. Call your city to find the nearest electronic recycling center near you.

On The Road Again

Simple things such as maintaining proper tire pressure and driving the speed limit can lead to lower rates of fuel consumption. Plus, proper tire pressure can improve your car's ride and safer driving can reduce your insurance bill.
