Ways to go green

  1. 1. Ways to Go Green If you are worried about the changing climate and overuse of natural resources and wondering about how to deal with the situation at home or at work, here are the ways to help you take necessary steps in order to control the climatic changes.
  2. 2. You can save energy and cost by setting up your thermostat a few degrees higher in summer and lower in winter in order to reduce your cooling and heating costs, using CFL instead of traditional bulbs to reduce power consumption, using smart power strip for auto power cut or unplug the electronic appliances if you are not using them.
  3. 3. You should skip buying water bottle. Instead of buying plastic water bottles you can buy an aluminium water bottle as a reusable source. You can use water purifier to get purified water as plastic water bottle is expensive and it also generates a lot of waste.
  4. 4. When you buy something online you should check second hand appliances too, consider the services like free sharing or craiglist and check out for thrift stores or garage sales for everday items and clothing. You can borrow library books instead of purchasing new books, it saves money, paper and ink which are used while new books get printed. Always try to buy the clothes that don’t need to be dry cleaned as it saves the excessive use of toxic chemicals and obviously your money too.
  5. 5. You can make your own cleaning products instead of buying it from the market, you can make non toxic cleaning products with the help of soap, lemon, vinegar and baking soda. These home made cleaning products maintain the indoor air quality and save money too.
  6. 6. Recycle Your Electronic Gadgets Rather Than Throwing It and Polluting The Earth It is better to recycle your gadgets rather than just throwing them away as without proper disposal they will cause environmental pollution as they produce a lot of toxic elements and radiations. Get your electronic goods including mobile, laptop, printer, scanner and other electronic devices recycled or disposed off in a safe and proper manner.
