Energy is often wasted in our homes in ways we don’t even notice. Look around your home and see how you can save energy and waste by doing some simple things.
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Following the 3 R’s involves knowing how much you use, reusing it when you can, and buying products that are biodegradable.
- Go Low Energy. That means looking for low energy products such as light bulbs, dishwashers, and washing machines to purchase. Most will have the Energy Star approval seal, so it’s easy to seek these products out and buy, making a big difference in savings.
- Turn Off Electrical Products. Things that use electricity can also waste a ton of energy. The best thing to do is make sure they’re turned off when not in use and even invest in an automatic system that does the job for you. Who said you had to give up convenience?
