Tips to Living Green

  • Purchase energy-efficient appliances. They cut carbon pollution and save you money!
  • Make sure your dishwasher and washing machine are always full before you run them as this will save energy and money.
  • Weather-proofing your home is a great way to save energy. Caulk your doors and windows, add insulation or add shades to use in the summer!
  • Leaving your computer for a while? Put it on standby and it will take less energy than shutting down and restarting.
  • Fix leaking faucets. The constant drip wastes water, energy, and money, so repair them as soon as possible.
  • Eat more veggies! On average, it takes nearly 10 times as much fossil fuel to produce animal protein compared to plant protein.
  • Unplug appliances and phone chargers when they aren't in use. If they're plugged in, they're drawing energy and costing you money.
