It is finally becoming more popular to be "green". Being green simply means doing things to help the environment. It could be anything from saving water, recycling, etc. The list goes on, which is why we're making a list.
Many of you may have heard the phrase 'reduce, reuse, recycle'. I think we'll use that and expand on it. I think most ways we can be green fit under those categories. Oh, and the most important thing we can do is to spread the word.
Carpool - Uses less gas, reduces pollution, and saves you money.
Ride a bicycle - Doesn't use gas, no pollution, and saves money.
Turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving.
Take shorter showers.
Glass and plastic food containers can be reused.
Use old/torn clothing for rags.
Find your local recycle center and see what you can bring in. It may be more than you realize.
Glass bottles and jars are often recyclable.
Plastic bottles can be recycled.
Aluminum cans can be recycled, and some places will pay for them.
Don't throw away that old newspaper or magazine. They can be used to make more. It saves trees and so much more.
