There are a number of ways to live green. Such as…
1. conserving water
2. use energy saving lightbulbs
3. walk/bike/carpool to work
4. turn off your lights when not in use
5. take short showers
Here are just some… there are many others! Be Creative!!!! =D
Turn all sources of electricity when not in use. even home appliances.
Ride your bike, walk to work/school whatever if practical.
Take cold showers.
recycle of course. lots and lots of things.
One of my biggest savers on my energy bill was to turn off appliances after I used them. That includes, microwaves, toasters, kettles, tv’s, dvd players etc etc.
When appliances are in ‘stand-by’ mode, that little red light can often use enough power over night to power the tv for an hour or more!!!
Before I go to bed everynight, I run around the house making sure everything is off and unplugged (saves extra energy), and all the lights are turned off.
Save water by using a bucket in the shower (particularly when you’re wating for the water to get warm – then put the water on you’re garden. Also, keep showers to 4 minutes and wash your car on the lawn – it’ll give it a drink too.
Do you have a water tank or solar water heating? This can also save you a lot of money in the long run. If you live in Australia, the government will pay for most of the cost aswell. I installed solar water heating about 1 year and a half ago and my bill has come down at least $150 (water heating is the biggest electricity user), while I haven’t had to use the tap to water my garden since I got the tank put in. In fact, it’s regularly full to the brim and I can’t use enough of the water!!
Also, unless you have bucket loads of money and can afford to buy a hybrid car, try taking public transport/walk once a week to work/the shops etc. It’ll ad up over the year and you’ll save the environment and your wallet.
Last but not least, plant lots of native trees in your backyard to attract all sorts of wonderful birds and to offset the emmissions from your car and home.
