Green is the New Pink: Earth Day Stamps
I started a segment called 'Green is the New Pink' a few weeks back and I apologize for not updating more often! I have things in mind, I just stumble with the whole implementation step. The idea behind 'Green is the New Pink' is that you don't have to be a stereotypical tree-hugger to be green. We can all make small steps, as stated above to "reduce our environmental footprint." All of the above steps can be taken with little to no expense to you! Granted, some may not be relevant to your area, but if you research enough, maybe there's something you can do to start it!
As I mentioned above, our electric bill in March was $6.82. I am serious. Here is the proof:
-Throw on sweats rather than turning up the heat a few degrees (drives me crazy to go to people's homes when they walk around in a tee shirt and shorts in the winter and have their heat up over 70.)
-Switch to energy-efficient lighting
-Turn off lights in rooms where no one is
-We have a large home with almost 75% of it not being used. We shut off these rooms' vents, and seal under the doors.
-My husband's solar panels
