We are all trying to save our earth as well as saving money, so below are some quick and easy tips to do both.
Use cloth kitchen towels – cloth is recyclable and will save you money, but if you need to purchase napkins and paper towels choose the recycled products that are now available.
Get a water filter or refill dispenser jugs vs single-serve, single-use plastic bottles.
Vacuum your fridge coils – doing this 3 to 4 times a year or more if you have pets will reduce your electric bill
Wash clothes in cold water – save roughly 80% of washer energy which is normally used with hot water by washing your clothes in cold water.
Shop the bulk bins to save packaging on grains, beans, cereals, pasta and snacks.
Make and take your lunch to work and avoid the waste of single-use packaging or take-out containers not to mention saving money as well.
