Transcript

  • 1. Tips for Reducing your Carbon Footprint 2 Part 2 of 3 in the Tips for Reducing your Carbon Footprint Series
  • 2. Saving Water • Altering minor things in your daily routine can help reduce the amount of water wasted in a day.
  • 3. Save when Brushing • One thing you can do is turn the water off while brushing your teeth. • Only turn it back on again when you need to rinse off your toothbrush or wash out your mouth. • By doing this you can save up nine gallons of water every time you brush your teeth!
  • 4. Shower instead of Baths • Try taking showers instead of baths. • You can use up to five times more water when taking a bath versus taking a shower.
  • 5. Watering Your Lawn • Watering your lawn either early in the morning or in the evening will help cut down the amount of times your lawn needs watering. • The chances of the water drying up in the heat are lowest at these times.
  • 6. Say no to Paper and Plastic • Go green by refusing paper or plastic bags when at the grocery store. • Paper bags are mad out of tress and plastic bags are made from oil. • The production of both types of bags is consuming earth’s precious natural resources.
  • 7. Purchasing Cloth Bags • Instead of having your groceries placed in a paper or plastic bag, use a cloth bag from home. • Cloth bags can be purchased in-store at places like Whole Foods or online at EcoBags and are fairly affordable.
  • 8. Reuse! • If it’s necessary for you to use a plastic or paper bag, recycle them. Use them for other shopping trips or line the trash bin with it.
