How to Become Eco-Friendly at Home this Summer
Check the thermostat – If you’re like most people, you simply set the temperature and leave it. But adjusting your thermostat two or three degrees, while not making much of a difference in comfort, can add up to major savings on your energy bill.
Keep it natural – Bugs and pests can be a real bummer during the summer months. Instead of using harsh chemicals on yourself and the environment, look for more natural alternatives.
Start growing your own plants - Plants produce oxygen, which is never a bad thing! You could even go so far as to grow your own fruits and vegetables, and save money in the long run.
Conserve water – Install a low-flow shower head in order to save water – and while you’re at it, make that shower a bit shorter. Set up a rain water collection system, and use the rain water to water plants and flowers.
