So you have been telling yourself that now is the time in your life where you are going to give back. You have decided that once the clanging rocks of man are gone and all that is left is the doom and gloom of the earth left standing that you hope it is standing in one piece. You have learned through the years that you can’t change the outside and then change within. And you can’t change within without the real commitment. You have to start at the home and build out. If you are interested in being a part of the home change then here are some things you can do.
You can buy the right water. You want to forgo the idea of the water bottle, especially the disposable bottles. Try this: get yourself a filter and then get yourself a stainless steel water bottle. This is a perfect idea for the person who loves to drink water but does not, under any pretense, want to harm the environment.
The next thing to do is to get smart about the way that you wash your laundry. There is a lot of separating and a lot of things on temperature control. You would be doing the environment a favor if you just washed everything on cold. These days there is detergent out there just for the clothes that need to be washed on cold.
The next thing you need to know is that you have to turn off the lights when you leave the room. It’s incredibly important to get yourself into the habit of turning off your life no matter what. It will save you enough money in the long run and that is what is most important for yourself and your environment.
