10 Super Easy Ways To Go Greener At Home

 10 Super Easy Ways To Go Greener At Home...besides just recycling!

10 Ways to go greener at home

 

The number of ways we can go greener at home is endless. You can google "ways to go greener at home" and find hundreds of articles on the subject. I decided just to list 10, my favorite 10 ways to go greener at home. They are super easy, they save me money each month and they are helping the environment. What's not to like? 

 

10 Ways To Go Greener At Home...

 

1) STOP using disposable bags. There is so much plastic waste in the ocean that A Sperm Whale was recently found dead with 64 pounds of plastic debris in his stomach. 

 

2) STOP buying plastic disposable bottles. Buy an inexpensive reusable water bottle and fill it up regularly. 

 

3) SUPPORT your local economy and shop at your local farmers market. Remember to bring your own reusable bags.

 

4) PAY your bills online. Not only is it greener and an easier way to pay the bills, it is an also sanity saver.

 

5) REPURPOSE glass jars as leftover containers and bulk storage. Use in the kitchen and in the laundry.

 

6) DONATE and shop at thrift stores. You will be recycling perfectly usable items, you will be supporting your local economy and you will be saving money.

 

7) PROMPTLY fix leaky faucets, running toilets and broken sprinkler heads. Thousands of gallons of water gets wasted just from folks saving these minor projects for the weekend. 

 

8) UNPLUG unused chargers and appliances. It's the little things that go unnoticed but can help make a difference.

 

9) CONDUCT an energy audit of your home and sign up for green power at your local power company. Here in Northern Nevada, NVEnergy has several ways to save on your monthly energy bill. Click here,  NV Energy, to learn more.

 

10) PLANT an herb garden. They are super easy to start, super easy to maintain and grow. This one might be one of my favorite summer projects. Fresh rosemary, mint, basil to put in your salads or on top of your favorite pasta? What's not to love?
