How to Go Green for Earth Day
There are a lot of simple things you can do to go green for Earth Day. Every little bit counts.
1) Stop using plastic bags at stores – use tote bags instead. Many stores including Wal-Mart are offering totes instead of plastic bags. Get a few tote bags and use them for your shopping. You can use them over and over again and that’s less plastic bags filling our trash.
2) Decrease your water usage – brush your teeth with the water off and don’t take long showers. Just shower long enough to get clean, and then get out.
3) Always use energy saving light bulbs – when you’re current bulbs go out, replace old light bulbs with energy saving bulbs. The new crop of CFL’s use less energy and last longer. Way longer.
4) Use rechargeable batteries instead of using disposable batteries. With rechargeable batteries, you just recharge and reuse the same batteries over and over again.
