    Easy Energy Tips for your Home

    Below are six small changes to add to your daily routine which prove that without much effort at all you can go green!

    Every little degree counts. By placing the thermostat one degree higher in the summer and one degree lower in winter, you will be saving energy and the temperature change won't be noticeable to you. If you feel a light draft in the air put on a sweater.

    These shoes were made for walking. Next time you visit your neighbor's house, why not walk the two blocks instead of driving (especially with where gas prices are today).

    Electrify your mind. Before leaving the house do a quick light check and make sure the lights are not left on wastefully. Also, ensure that you set your outside lights to come on only at sun down.

    Let the sun shine in. You'll use much less electric light if you open the blinds and curtains during the day. If you live in an area that doesn't receive much sunlight, choose to buy compact fluorescent light bulbs.

    Don't waste a drop. When brushing your teeth, don't let the water run consistently. Only turn it on when you wet your toothbrush and when you spit!

    Be paper picky. You can choose what to use. Limit the amount of paper cups and paper plates you use, especially when you are at home and only use the type you can recycle. You can clean and be green by using recycled paper towels that are Green Seal Certified. You'll create less waste altogether if you use a fabric cloth or old sock when you are cleaning.

    These six tips show that lowering your eco-footprint doesn't require huge steps!

    Go Green - Healthy Living Tips

    Here are some ‘tried and true’ and new ideas to save money while making your home healthier and greener.


    1. Keep your heat down to a reasonable temperature in winter.
    2. Try not to overuse air conditioners in hot climates.
    3. Install ceiling fans.
    4. Dress in layers of organic cotton for cold climates.
    5. Turn off computers at night from the power-strip.
    6. Use energy-saving light bulbs like compact fluorescent light bulbs.
    7. Turn off lights when not in use.
    8. Use rechargeable batteries, or solar powered devices.
    9. Make use of natural daylight.
    10. Install double glazed skylights to take advantage of natural light.
    11. Make sure your weather-strips are working correctly.

  • What Does Go Green Mean?

    What Does Go Green Mean? Green can mean many different things to different people. For some, it means simply environmentally friendly and to others means living a life that is not dangerous to the health of people or animals.

    When you Go Green you only use green house products that are healthy for the environment and include no toxins, you recycle to help save land fills, and you do everything possible to live healthy and reduce the impact on our earth. By living green and going green you reduce any negative impact on the planet in all possible ways.

    Green cleaning products are also called eco-friendly products.

    Many green products are packaged in recycled packaging, are biodegradable, and contain no phosphates, chlorine, artificial fragrances, or artificial colors. The main goal of green cleaning is to use eco-friendly cleaning solutions, recycle, using organic when possible, and promote methods that keep our environment healthy. Everyone should live in an eco friendly home!

    Many people are also finding that green building also reduces the impact on the environment and many businesses are now going green to help reduce the impact on our earth.

    By living green you seek to reduce negative impact on the planet in every way possible!
