Earth-Friendly Tips

Millions of people around the world are making small but significant changes to help sustain our ecosystem every day. Want to join them, and help make the earth a healthier place to live? It's simple - try these tips, courtesy of www.earthday.net:  

  1. Replace regular light bulbs with energy efficient ones - they use less electricity, resulting in lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
  2. Drive less, get regular tune-ups and consider a hybrid car - all can reduce CO2 levels and improve fuel efficiency
  3. Eat locally farmed foods that are grown organically. It takes less energy to get them to market and organic farming uses no pesticides
  4. Buy recycled products - and recycle your trash. In addition, steer clear of products that use excessive packaging

Small steps and individual responsibility can make a huge difference all over the world - get started today, and encourage others to do the same!

Thanks for the information. Don't leave your computer on -- put it to sleep. The resultant energy savings call really add up, plus it will prolong your monitor and cpu's lives.

Oh so true! We turn off the power on the power strip at night and when we are out.
Saves money for sure and clears the air!
