Our team encourages your to think about your lifestyle decisions so we have listed a few small ways in which you can make a big difference in the world we live in.
If you are going to throw something away, think twice before you do. Can this item be reused? If so, either reuse it, or put it in the recycle bin so someone else can. Set up a recycling bin next to your desk or in your lunchroom as a reminder. Recycling can make a huge impact on our environment and it is so easy to do.
Turn off the lights
If you do not need the light on, then turn it off. Try opening up a window and drawing back the curtains to let some natural light in so you can let the light bulb relax. This is a very easy way to try and conserve energy, as well as save money.
Walk or ride a bike
There is no need to drive your car to the store that is around the block if you do not absolutely have to. Get some exercise and fresh air by walking or riding your bike whenever you can to save on gas emissions from your car.
Going paperless is another way for you to help out our environment. More and more companies are encouraging customers to use this service. You have the ability to view and pay your bills online without having to leave your house, how convenient. You do not have to print so you save on paper and you do not have to drive so you save on gas. This is a continent and easy way to help out our environment.
Unplug unused appliances
This may come as a surprise to some, but if an appliance is plugged into the wall even if it is off, it is still using energy. Anytime you are not using your toaster, cell phone charger, computer, or TV unplug them because you will help save energy. Unplugging your appliances when they are not in use is a great way to conserve energy.
