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.
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!
