There’s nothing wrong with going green (unless you use the phrase regularly), and it wouldn’t hurt any of us to become more environmentally friendly. Even though the Earth has become a wasteland due to extensive human interference, we should still try to do the right thing for our home planet, even if it’s too late.
Here’s a few tips to get you started:
- Recycle! – That’s right. Separate all your trash from the paper, plastic, cardboard, and glass in your life. Grease can be recycled as well, in addition to household batteries.
- Charge it! – Buy rechargeable batteries instead of one-use types to save money, time, and the gas you need to pick them up at the store (unless you shop online).
- Chill out! – Using cold water as opposed to hot or warm to wash your hands saves electricity.
- Bag it! – Bring reusable bags when shopping for grocery items, clothing, or anything else that you can get into said bags. Not only will you be saving yourself the headache of dealing with those flimsy plastic bags, but you’ll be saving the store you shopped at some coins! One of my local grocery stores gives shoppers credit for bringing in their own bags to bag their groceries; check to find out if your local stores do as well.
I hope these tips helped push you towards having a green life. Happy greening (I’m done using the word green in any form now…you’re welcome)!
