Ways to Go Green

Ways to Become Green - My Schoolhouse - Online Learning
 

Are you ready to go GREEN?  Many Americans are becoming GREEN.  So what does being GREEN actually mean?  Well, it means you are becoming friendly with the environment.  It means you care about your environment and what you do in your daily activities that affects the environment.

So, if you're not already GREEN, how do you become GREEN?  Here are some tips on how to become GREEN or GREENER.

1.  Take a bag with you to the store.  All those plastic grocery bags costs energy to make and if they are not used again, they end up in our landfills.

2.  Recycle all your plastics.  Plastics use energy to make and do not breakdown quickly in a landfill.  Recycle those plastics so they may live again.

3.  Drink from a glass or mug.  All that paper that you use to drink soda or coffee cost energy to make and again often ends up in landfills.

4.  Turn down the water heater in your home just a few degrees and save energy.  Turning down the water heater just 10 degrees can save TONS of energy.

5.  Switch out the incandescent bulbs in your house for fluorescent bulbs.  This may save over 50 dollars per year and save energy.

6.  Lower your heating thermostat by a degree or two in the winter and raise it in the summer.  This will save energy for everyone.

7.  Drive slower and start slower.  Racing off and quick stops wastes gasoline.  A heavy foot can cost a driver in gasoline.  (And brake pads.)

8.  Replace older appliances with new energy-efficient models.  Making electricity uses a lot of energy.

9.  Unplug items that use electricity when they are not being used.  Many of the chargers used today consume energy when they are not charging anything.

10.  Dry some of your clothes outside instead of using the dryer.  Let the warm air dry your clothes instead of fossil fuels.
