The green movement is present year round, but since Earth Day is the 22nd of April, that makes this month the most important time to highlight the cause.
In honor of this special day, we’ve compiled a list of ways you can create a more eco-friendly atmosphere around your house. Don’t worry, it’s not as hard, or as expensive, as you may be imagining right now!
4 Ways To Go Green At Home
1. Unplug Your Electronics.
And we don’t just mean turning them off…make sure the plug is disconnected from the outlet as well. An easier way to do this is to plug your cords to a power strip so you can easily turn the entire strip off, without having to yank each cord out accordingly.
2. Repair Any Leaks.
An occasional drip from your faucet may not sound for alarm, but every time you hear it drip, you’re wasting more and more water. And don’t forget about the leaks that could potentially be happening outside. Call Fairfield County Exteriors if you happen to need any roofing or deck repair.
3. Upgrade Your Appliances.
It may cost more upfront, but buying Energy Star labeled items means you’re making the most effort to consciously try to be more energy efficient.
4. Replace Your Lightbulbs.
Maybe this statistic will help put things into perspective: Trading one incandescent light bulb for a compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) prevents the emission of over 400 pounds of greenhouse gases.
