Most people in the United States consider themselves to be environmentally friendly, but are we doing everything we can to save our Earth? Earth Day is right around the corner and we wanted to share some handy tips to keep your home and environment green.

Invest in Reusable Water Bottles

Instead of buying bulk water bottle packages, consider using a filter to get your daily H2O. According to the EPA, Americans consume 50 billion bottles of water every year. These bottles are harmful since most of it end up in landfills. The environmentally-friendly thing to do is purchase a reusable bottle and fill it up with water from a filtered water source.

Package and Seal Your House

Scan your house for any air that escapes through any nooks and crannies. The amount of energy lost is equivalent to the loss of energy when a window opens. Improve the insulation in your home and it will help conserve energy as a whole. This can also help save some dollars off your utility bills. Sounds like a win-win!

Dish Washing Strategy

If you plan on running your dishwasher, make sure you are washing full loads. Running your dishwasher for only a few dishes can be wasteful and harmful to our energy source.

Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!

Make sure you are recycling all paper products at home. Instead of throwing away old newspapers, magazines or boxes, consider donating them or recycling them. Get creative and donate plastic, scraps and plastic bags to organizations that can upcycle those scraps and turn them into something new.

It isn’t easy being green, but taking these small steps will greatly benefit the Earth in the long run. When all is said and done, you will have taken the right steps to reduce your carbon footprint and keep your home—Earth—green for another day.
