The start of a new year means resolutions, and many of these resolutions involve going green. If you are looking to become a little more environmentally friendly this upcoming year, be sure to follow these tips on how to go green for the New Year.
Use reusable bags.
Grocery shopping can often result in a pileup of plastic bags or paper bags. While one trip to the grocery store won’t result in too many of these bags, weekly trips will result in a huge collection of plastic or paper over time. Instead, consider bringing your own reusable bags with you to the grocery store.
Fix leaky faucets.
If you have a faucet that is constantly dripping throughout the day and night, this can result in a lot of water wasted. Be sure you conserve more water by having these leaky faucets fixed.
Unplug at night.
If you have a ton of electronic devices plugged into your outlets at night, they can quickly become energy hogs, not only increasing your monthly electric bill, but also resulting in more wasted energy. Consider unplugging the devices you aren’t using when you are sleeping to save energy.
