Small actions can create huge results, especially when it comes to the environment. There are so many ways we can help our environment and our wallet by being more conservative with our usages of the things around us.
Here are 4 easy ways for you to become greener around your home:
Changing A Light Bulb
Installing a compact fluorescent or LED light bulb in your home is the easiest way to save energy as well as money! Unlike incandescent bulbs, fluorescent and LED bulbs convert most of the energy they use into light rather than producing heat.
Do Full Loads of Laundry
Instead of washing a few items of clothing at a time, try doing larger loads of laundry to help save water. By combining half-loads, choosing sorter cycles, and using cold or warm rather than hot water will rack up savings quickly.
Use Reusable Bags
By using reusable bags you do not have to take plastic bags which become very harmful to the planet. You can easily get reusable bags at any grocery store and some stores will even give you a discount when you shop using reusable bags! The BC Liquor store
now has paper bags which double as great compost bags for the kitchen!
Support your local farmers by shopping locally for your produce. Buying locally grown foods can also reduce the pollution and energy used from transporting, storing, and refrigerating foods. This is especially important now as we should be supporting local small business in North Vancouver.
