Celebrate Earth Day April 22, 2009

Earth Day

Save the Earth, yes, you!  Let's give back to the planet just as we take from it. I don't know, I'm getting sentimental, but I have started to recycle. Gotta start somewhere. 

Here are some ideas we can all try, to celebrate Earth Day, by conserving energy, money and the earth.   

LIGHTING

  • Take advantage of natural daylight. Don't turn on lights  when you don't need to.
  • Use compact fluorescent light bulbs or LED lighting. They may cost more, but they save as much as 80% on your electric bill and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

APPLIANCES

  • Use water and energy saving features on your dishwasher. Only run full loads.
  • Wash clothes in cold water to save heat and only run full loads. 
  • Using your bath towel more than once, will save energy.  Hey, this is not a hotel.
  • Look for "Energy Star" appliances and electronics.
  • Save money by not running large appliances such as washers and dryers during peak energy demand hours.
  • Try an old fashioned clotheslines for drying.
  • Turn off and unplug unused lights, appliances and computer monitors.

BUY LOCAL

  • Buy locally grown food and goods.  Less energy is consumed to get these products to you.     

WATER

  • Take shorter showers.
  • Turn the water off while brushing your teeth.

HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING

  • Turn thermostat down when you are not home and before you go to bed.
  • Install insulation in your attic.
  • Seal leaks and holes with caulking.
  • Weather-strip windows and doors.
