Here are some things you can do at home to help save the environment and also save money!


- Check all caulking and weather stripping and replace when needed



- Turn down the thermostat by 2 degrees and by 5 overnight. Grab an afghan or shawl if you feel cool in the evening


- Run dishwasher only when full and on the energy saver cycle.


- Wash clothes in cold water rather than warm or hot water and only do full loads.


- Hang clothing to dry outside on a clothing line or clothing rack.


- Recycle garbage by sorting cardboard, plastics, glass and newspapers and drop them off at recycling bins.


- Replace old appliances to energy star appliances.

- Insulate your water heater or replace with a new tankless water heater.


- Replace 40, 60 and 100 watt light bulbs with LED light bulbs


- Clean the refrigerator's coils and defrost regularly.

- Use baking soda in the bathroom to clean sinks, counters and bathtubs. Use borax or vinegar to clean mold spots.

- Bicycle when possible instead of driving to work.

- Cook basic meals instead of microwaving prepackaged foods.

- Add extra insulation in your attic to retain heat in the winter.


- Changing your showerhead to a water efficient showerhead. It could save as much a 14% per person per year. Also limit the time in the shower.

- Have your plumber check your plumbing for any leaks and see if there are any improvements you can make.

- Wash your car using a bucket instead of with the hose.


- Use soaker hoses to water your gardens and lawns.


- Check your water meter with all the water turned off to make sure no dials are moving.


- Plant local plants in your garden to lessen having to water as much. Water your lawn only once a week.


- Keep a bowl in the sink for rinsing and reuse water in the garden.


- Compost food waste.


- Collect some of water while waiting for the shower water to heat to use for watering plants or out in the garden.


- Use a toaster oven rather than the electric oven with cooking small items.


- Use a hand blender over a food processor or mixer whenever possible.


- Don't open the fridge or freezer door to decide what you feel like eating.


- Keep a lid on pots when boiling and simmering.


- Thaw food completely to save on cooking time


- Don't overstuff the freezer as it affects the efficiency


- Use fans instead of air conditioning


- Open blinds or shades instead of turning on lights during the day


- Clean out closets and donate or trash what you don't need.


- Shop at consignment stores to recycle


- Take old cell phones and laptops to a recycling depot
