Fun Facts

Compost when possible.

Instead of tossing eggshells, fruit and veggie scraps, tea bags and coffee grounds in the trash, save them in a separate bin and start a compost pile. You’ll have less trash and richer soil!

Eliminate disposable items.

Paper towels and paper napkins can be replaced by cloth equivalents to cut down on waste in the kitchen. Simply toss them in with your regular load of laundry for long-lasting, reusable alternatives.

Opt for natural.

When it comes to surface cleaners and air fresheners, go for all-natural to cut down on the chemicals used in your home. You can even make your own using common household products.

Stock your fridge and freezer.

Keeping refrigerator or freezer about 75% full is generally more energy efficient than an empty one. The cold contents help contain the cold so the unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the empty space.

Buy in bulk.

Purchasing food in bulk cuts down on packaging, which saves money. It can then help reduce the number of grocery trips you take, which saves gas. Just make sure those larger quantities doesn’t go to waste in your home.

Do dishes the smart way.

To save water and energy, wash full loads of dishes and let them air dry instead of using the heat cycle.

Make your lifestyle even more eco-friendly by using clean energy.
