Thursday Thirteen #4

Thirteen Simple Things to help the Environment

1. Wash your clothes in cold water.
2. Turn off the lights when you leave the room (providing that no one is still in there *g*).
3. Use canvas bags when shopping instead of plastic.
4. Use paper bags when you shop if you forget your canvas bag.
5. Replace your light bulbs with high efficiency bulbs.
6. Don't let the water run while you brush your teeth.
7. Wash and re-use plastic containers, rather than throwing them away and filling landfills.
8. Support someone who is teaching how to live a greener/more eco-friendly lifestyle.
9. Keep your fridge and freezer filled so it runs more efficiently.
10. Keep your blinds/curtains drawn during the day in the summer to keep heat out, and open during the day in the winter to let light and heat in.
11. Consolidate errands to save gas and emit fewer carbons into the air.
12. Send an ecard for a birthday or holiday rather than a paper card, or make sure that the paper card that you send is either recycled or "tree free."
13. Read one eco-friendly tip a day to help create a healthier planet.

Great list! Here in Germany, we do a lot of those things. Most stores don't supply you with bags - you have to bring your own, or else buy them at the store. And fridges and freezers are much smaller here, so they fill up quickly!

Thanks for the tips!

A great topic. We all have to start being aware and do more to save our planet...while we still have one ;-)

Thanks for visiting my blog! The Lap Lady says their company is trying to build "Green" houses that are good for the environment. Its not easy 'cause that stuff is often more expensive and builders don't like cost...
