Tips for Greener Living
• When shopping, pay attention to how much packaging products come in. Reduce waste by purchasing items that have minimal packaging, buying in bulk, and buying the largest size of an item you can reasonably use. (Source BeGreenNow.com)
• Up to 20 billion plastic water bottles end up in U.S. landfills a year (Source BeGreenNow.com). Do your part to reduce that number by taking a pledge to not buy bottled water; instead keep a re-fillable water bottle in your car or purse, and fill it from water coolers and drinking fountains.
• Don’t need any more phone books? Look on the inside cover and contact the manufacturer to be removed from the mailing list. You will be saving trees and reducing waste. (Source BeGreenNow.com)
• 75% of the electricity used by home electronics is consumed while the products are turned off. This can be avoided by unplugging the appliances when not in use or using a power strip and using the switch on the power strip to cut all power to the appliances. (Source BeGreenNow.com)
• Switch your computer monitor to sleep mode or manually turn it off when not in use. Despite common belief, the screen-saver mode does not actually save energy. (Source BeGreenNow.com)
