Tips on how to live a greener lifestyle

Earth Day is April 22. Celebrate the occasion by finding a few new ways to make your home and the planet we all share a little greener.

Plant a Tree

This is a great idea that works for both Earth Day and National Arbor Day (April 28). Planting a tree in your yard can enhance your curb appeal, provide much-needed shade and even help you breathe a bit easier. Trees help clean the air by absorbing excess CO2 and pollutant gases.

Reduce Food Waste

Americans throw away about 35 million tons of food each year – 95% of which ends up in landfills. You can help reduce waste and save money by “shopping” your fridge first, being creative with leftovers and storing food properly so it stays fresh longer.

Host an Eco-Swap

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Organize a community swap meet where friends, family and neighbors can offer their seldom-used toys, books, clothing or household items in exchange for others.

Energy Saving Tip

Put Your Computer to Sleep

Adjust your computer settings so it goes to sleep after 15 minutes of inactivity and turns off after 30. That one small act can save you $40 per year!
