Living Green has become Trendy

Political figures and Hollywood stars are speaking out for living green. It seems that you can hardly turn to the local newspaper without finding an article on how we can become more energy efficient and earth friendly. It almost feels like the 70’s all over again. I even heard today the some republicans are talking about what they can do! The great thing about all this hype is that it really is making it easier to be green. If you haven’t quite jumped on the bandwagon, here’s your personal invitation. And some easy tips:
  • Wash your clothes in cold water
  • Bring your own mug to the coffee shop

  • Install a low flow showerhead

  • Replace you household light bulbs with compact fluorescents

  • Install and use a programmable thermostat

  • Bring your own bags to the grocery store

  • Don’t let your car idle
  • When buying new appliances get the energy efficient kind
