Purchasing recycled clothing and apparel created with eco-friendly materials and processes is a great way to give love back to good old Mother Earth.
But there are thousands of ways to adopt a greener lifestyle. Many of which are simply becoming more energy conscious around your very own home.
Keep your electric bill in check by making sure you are not letting the comfortable air inside your home escape by making sure you seal loose gaps around doors and exterior windows. Having a well insulated home will be a sure way to save energy during the extreme temperature months. The less your air conditioner or heater runs – the better for all of us.
Perform a quick inspection in your kitchen to ensure your electric appliances are in working order. Replace older ones with newer, more energy efficient models. Often times the savings you will reap will help justify the cost of the new kitchen appliances.
Speaking of the kitchen – keep the oven door closed until your food is fully cooked. Most ovens have an oven window – use this instead of opening the oven door every five minutes to see if your food is ready to eat.
The same goes for the refrigerator. Get out of the habit of standing in front of the fridge staring at your food.
Keep the oven and refrigerator closed and you will see a difference in your power bill over time.
