YAY! Summer is officially here! St. Joe will be busy this summer helping folks sell their homes, but as summer starts this week, we want to share some tips to stay green this season!
Bamboo Dinner Plates ~ Say goodbye to paper-plates for those summer BBQ's, these disposable bamboo plates are disposable and biodegrade within six months of use.
Find alternatives to staying cool ~ Give your air conditioner (and electricity bill) a break by opening your windows at night and letting the evening breeze cool your home! Buy a Deluxe Misting fan. These are really inexpensive and can give you a nice splash of energy when you're feeling hot and lethargic.
Be conservative with your water ~ Water usage is a big deal throughout the US, especially during the summer. Watch what you use, only water plants when necessary, and use a rain barrel to collect water for extra watering.
