New Year’s Resolutions Continued....

  • Cut Down On Power: Plug your electronic into power strips so you can conveniently switch off when you’re not using them. Unplug appliances when not in use like the toaster, coffee maker or microwave.
  • Don’t Drive When You Can Walk, Or Ride A Bike: Walking and biking not only helps the planet, but it helps your health too. However, if you must drive, kick the idling habit. Unnecessary idling is bad for your wallet, your vehicle, the environment and the health of people around you. Contrary to popular belief, the best way to warm up your car is to drive it at a medium speed. Idling for 10 minutes a day produces almost a quarter-ton of carbon dioxide emissions and costs you more than $80 every year!
  • Don’t Waste Water: Turn off the faucet while you’re brushing your teeth. Also take shorter showers or turn off the water while you’re soaping up.
