There are so many reasons why we should be 'green'. Reduced dependence on fossil fuel use, environmental protection for now and future generations, and personal cost savings are just the tip of the iceberg. So, how do you do start? You can do something small and realizing energy savings right away by looking and water use and lighting; even the smallest step helps make a difference! Here are my top 5 ways to embrace 'green' practices:
1) Upgrade to green. With new government standards and improved technology, modern faucets are more efficient than ever. Saving up to 32% on your water usage, WaterSense certified faucets make going green practically effortless. Big box hardware stores sell models that are well under $100. A quick, first step toward going green, is installing flow optimized aerators -$3-$5 - which enable more effective performance for older faucets without much cost.
