Going "GREEN" PART I



I personally started small, -with the basics in the house,
  • change the light bulbs with CFL
  • a low flow shower head with a filter in the hadle (change it every 6months), set came with an additional filter
  • a laundry system that helped me eliminate using soaps...
  • the cleaner I use for the house chores is 100 biodegradable and safe to wash even vegetable
get informed
Tips:
  • Use cloth rags instead of paper towels
  • change furnace filter several times a year
  • unplug appliances/electronics that are not in use (they draw electricity )
  • purchase a dishwasher - uses less water then doing the dishes by hand
  • keep heat generating appliances away from the refrigerator/freezer
Those are a few easy steps that anyone can implement in their household.
