“Green living” seems to be hot buzz words right now. It appears thata lot of people aretrying to “go green” in different ways – even if it’s justbuying Energy Star appliances,recycling, or making use of re-useable grocery bags at the store. There are many nay-sayers around that just don’t want to spend the time to “go green” and maybe that is because they have the wrong idea about taking care ofthe environment . Maybe you are one of those nay-sayers who thinkbeing green will take up a lot of your time; I mean going through trash for recyclingmay not be your idea of a Saturday project. Youmight alsobe concerned that being environmentally conscious is too expensive – at least it seems like a lot of the environmentally safe products for sale cost more than the non-green products. Take light bulbs for example. The energy efficient bulbs are a littlemore expensive, but they also have many good benefits – they last quite a bit longer than regular bulbs and they are great for the environment. Even if you may not be a dedicated Earth lover, there are still many easy things you can do each day to be environmentally conscious yet not burden your life significantly.;
Here’s some tips on how to “go green” each day :
- Toss out the take-out bag, the brown bag from home , and the doggie bag and bring your food to work in an reuseable food tote.
- Whenever you go to the grocery store , bring along a reuseable grocery tote bag instead of utilizing the plastic bags the store provides. You can even personalize your shopping bag with a custom monogram.
- Take your favorite coffee cup with you to Starbucks next time you get a cup of coffee. You will waste less by not using one of their cups.
- Rather than buying an unopened bottle of water, bring your own in a steel container.
- Consider buying a set of utensils to take on your next dinner out. It doesn’t make sense to use a set of plastic utensils for eating and then toss them out. You might even find a fun, colorful set, and purchase a set for every member of the family.
- Rather than using disposable paper napkins, consider switching to fabric napkins for meals at your house . You can easily make napkins from old fabric scraps or buy a set to use and wash on your regular laundry day.
- Consider purchasing food in local stores whenever possible. In my town I go to the Farmer’s Market every summer for my fresh produce. Every time you can buy locally, you are saving resources needed to move and keep the produce fresh.
- Launder your clothes in cold water and you will save around 85% of the energy that hot water would usually take to wash a load of clothes.
- Before you jump in your automobile to run errands, think about walking to your destination instead. Think of the exercise you will get and the gas you will save !
