Do you want to “go green” and help the environment, but don’t really know where to start?
You’ve probably heard all of the typical environmental tips: turn off the lights when you leave the room, don’t leave the water running while you brush your teeth, etc.
Why not try something new this year? Earth Day is the perfect opportunity to make positive improvements in your lifestyle that also betters the environment. Friday, April 22 marks the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. Why not make this YOUR time to go green?
Here are some quick tips to get you started:
- Pay your bills online. If every house in the United States did this, we would save 18 million trees every year.
- Make the most of your reusable bags – bring your own reusable bags to the store to spare the use of plastic bags. They now come in all different types of patterns and colors, so being green can be trendy.
- Green is beautiful. There are many beauty and personal care products that are good for you AND the environment. EcoTools and Physicians Formula are great brands that offer many varieties of products that are kind to both Mother Nature and your body.
- Your four-legged friend wants to reduce their carbon footprint too! Use biodegradable plastic bags to pick up waste.
- Clean green by making your own environmentally friendly cleaning solution or find one of the many choices available now in your local store.
- Let’s work together for a cleaner, greener planet.

Simple eco-friendly habits make a big difference if enough people participate. Water conservation habits combined with water saving devices such as rainwater systems and greywater systems will immediately reduce your environmental impact and save money. Switching to solar energy such as solar water geysers can also greatly reduce your carbon footprint and your electricity bills.
