Simple Tips for a Greener Household
Maybe you’re not ready to cover your house in solar panels or spend a majority of your free time gardening. Here are some simple things you can do to reduce your carbon-trailing energy footprint:
- Use reusable bags for groceries and other shopping.
- Use reusable boxes and bags for gifts instead of wrapping paper.
- If you have a yard, make a compost pile for yard waste and household food waste. This material can help enrich the soil for gardens and flowerbeds in years to come.
- Use the Internet to receive and pay household bills—it’s a paper-free service.
