1.) Every day, we flush almost 5 billion gallons of water down the toilet (at about three to six gallons per flush)! There IS a quick fix thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll save you money and will help save the environment Ã¢â‚¬â€ add a brick to your tank!
Actually, either a standard brick OR a sealed soda bottle filled with pebbles and water will do the trick. Just open up your tank and carefully place one of these objects in the water, making sure it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t touch any moving parts.
And voila! This one-minute addition can save you 16% or more on your water bill (not to mention over 7,500 gallons a year!)
2.) Save $30 a Lightbulb By Making This Simple Switch!
Save up to 75% of your light bill (and reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as a hefty drain on our energy supply) by switching to compact fluorescent light bulbs.
Not only do they use a fraction of the energy, but theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll last anywhere between six and fifteen times longer than our old standby Ã¢â‚¬â€ the incandescent bulb.
3.) Eat Local-Support your local farmers, save money and enjoy fresh, healthy food thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s often grown organically.
How? Become a member of a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm where, for a seasonal commitment, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get a weekly harvest of the freshest produce around. (And the price is VERY affordable, especially compared to your local grocery store!)
Some CSAs will actually deliver to your home. And if the drive or the large haul of food gets to be too much, split pick-up duties and expenses with a friend!
To find one in your area, visit localharvest.org/csa.
