Reduce Your Footprint

Reducing your footprint doesn’t mean you have to buy more expensive products—going green can actually help you save some green. There are lots of things you can do in your own home to cut back that are both good for you and good for the environment.

Here’s how to keep more of your hard-earned money in your wallet:

Save on Electricity

  • Wash your laundry in cold water instead of hot.
  • Line dry your linens.
  • Turn off unnecessary lights and appliances, and unplug electronics when not in use.
  • Switch to compact fluorescent lightbulbs.
  • Buy lights with motion sensors.

Save on Water

  • Take shorter showers
  • Compost food scraps instead of using the garbage disposal
  • Only run the dishwasher when full
  • Sweep, rather than hose down, the walkways and deck
  • Put a bucket in your shower and save the warm-up water-use it to water plants
  • Don't let the water run when you shave or brush your teeth

Save on Gas

  • Burn calories, not gas
    Don't drive when you can walk, bike, or take public transit.
  • If you do drive, carpool when you can. And consolidate your trips-it will save your time, too.
  • Have your car serviced regularly to keep it working efficiently.

Save on the Food Budget

Go meatless one meal a week. Meat requires more resources to produce than veggies, grains and beans. Eat out less and cook at home. You can find tasty recipes here.

Save on Utilities

Did you know many utility companies offer recommendations on how to save energy and money? Contact your local utility to see how you can save on lighting, heating and cooling. A few small changes can cut greenhouse gas emissions and your power bill too.
