Happy Earth Day!

Here are just a few of the things I do to try to help out:

Always run a full load of laundry.

Always run a full load of dishes.

Always turn off the water when brushing our teeth.

Always set the thermostat down.

Use home made grocery bags.

It may not seem like a lot, but every little bit helps. I also turn off lights when not in a room, and the television! Don't forget those un-used items that are plugged in, they draw electricty even when they aren't turned on!

Don't forget to turn off your lights tonight at 9:00pm!

I agree with all of those also, no more paper plates, new light-bulbs, recycle as much as we can, I am getting better about turing the water off as I brush my teeth, but for sume reason that is a hard one for me!

Very true, my son is starting to get a bit better about turning things off at the wall. I use a couple of bags for life for my shopping, and don't have a pile of carrier bags anymore. I think once we just start getting into it we will be fine. best wishes Julie.C
