What does "green" mean to you? The list is endless and the definition of "green" is different for many people. The fundamental concept of green is conserving the earth’s resources so that they are not depleted faster than they can be replenished. Learn to make conscious choices and be aware of potential consequences. Here are just a few of the ways people live a greener lifestyle:
Become less wasteful and more energy-efficient.
Remember to turn off lights, unplug unused appliances, and wash only full loads of dishes and clothes.
Save money on energy costs.
Turn down thermostats, replace incandescent bulbs with CFL bulbs, and clean dryer filters.
Find cheaper, earth-sustainable alternatives.
Ride bikes, take mass transit, and use paperless statements.
Make healthier basic choices for your home.
Use solvent-free grout, low-formaldehyde carpet pads and insulation, low-VOC paint, or a water treatment system.
Build with recycled materials.
Choose reclaimed wood, recycled steel, or recycled material countertops.
