The Green Expectation: January
The Greenhouse Effect: Green in the New Year with some little things you can do around the house to better the environment:
- Replace light bulbs with compact flourescent bulbs, which last longer and use less energy.
- Avoid vampire electricity by unplugging appliances when they are not in use instead of just turning them off. (Especially chargers for phones or computers!)
- Even though it is getting cold outside, turn your theremostat down a couple of degrees, and use a space heater at night when it gets too chilly.
Trying these tips out for a month will help you see how easily it is to become green for life as well as helping you save on energy bills.
