Tips on how to live a greener lifestyle

It’s a new year – start it off right by resolving to live a greener lifestyle. With some relatively small changes, you can reduce your spending, save energy and help conserve our planet.

Keep Things Simple

Consider simplifying your lifestyle by paring down your possessions and only buying what you need. You’ll save money, decrease clutter and be surrounded by items that get used regularly or bring you joy.

Waste Less Food

Nearly 1/3 of all food produced worldwide is wasted – and most of that ends up in landfills. This year, resolve to plan ahead when you shop, buy food more frequently and eat smaller portions.

Plant a Garden

If you have space to plant one, the benefits of a backyard garden are significant. You can lower food costs, make meals more personal, create family memories and reduce the environmental impact of transporting and warehousing food.

Energy Saving Tip

Don’t speed on highways. Driving the speed limit isn’t just safer, it’s more energy efficient. Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. Each five mph you drive over that speed is like paying an additional $0.15 per gallon for gas.
