A City Dweller's Guide To Going Green

 1 year ago       111 Views

Here's how: If you want to be more environmentally friendly, start at home.

Energy Star predicts that the average U.S. household could save more than $100 a year by unplugging devices when they're turned off.

More and more cities around the United States are starting to offer bike share programs where users can check out a bike at one station and ride it to another one closer to where they’re going.

Besides being eco-friendly, riding a bike is a great way to get in some exercise.

You've probably heard it time and time again, but the amount of unnecessary trash you can save by carrying around reusable bottles and bags is astonishing.

I've found that bringing my reusable mug to my neighborhood cafe is just as easy, plus it gives you an excuse to make friends with the baristas and get 50 cents off your coffee.

A little planning ahead can go a long way when you’re trying to go green.

If you can’t grow your own food, buying seasonally and locally is the next best thing.

You’ll help the local economy, support farmers, and reduce your carbon footprint because your food will come from the next town over instead of halfway around the world.

Plus, it's a chance to connect with the farmers and like-minded people doing their best to live green.
