Simple Changes in Your Daily Routine That Can Make Everyday Earth Day

Today is Earth Day!  Today you’re going to hear a lot of things you could do today, but let’s not forget about the simple things we can do every day.

Here are a few simple changes over a year that can make every day Earth Day:

 

Configure your office printer or copy machine so it prints on both sides of the page.

 

Pay bills online, or set up automatic check paying from your bank account. No envelopes, no postage — and no late fees, if you’re on an automatic plan.

 

Driving 10 mph above 60 is like adding nearly 50 cents to the price of a gallon of gas, since higher speed equals more guzzling.

 

Choose concentrated or ultra-cleaning products, which use 50 to 60 percent less packaging than traditional formulas while cleaning just as thoroughly.

 

Plant trees around the house strategically (on the south and west sides; shading the air-conditioning unit, if possible) to save up to about $250 a year on cooling and heating.

 

Running a full dishwasher uses half the water and energy — or less — of washing the same dishes by hand. Another water saver: Don’t rinse before loading.
