More green tips from a "green" man
As promised, here are more of Cory Hoffart's tips for living a greener lifestyle. I hope you follow these simple and easy suggestions. I know I will; especially when it comes to curbside recycling and shopping with green in mind!
Save water to save money.
- Install a low-flow showerhead. They don’t cost much, and the water and energy savings will quickly pay back your investment.
- Use faucet aerators on each faucet. These inexpensive inserts conserve heat and water, while keeping water pressure high.
- Contact the City of Tulsa to enroll for curbside recycling at www.cityoftulsa.org.
- Recycle your electronics. E-waste contains mercury and other toxins that are a growing environmental problem. Contact the M.e.t. at www.metrecycle.com.
Think before you buy.
- Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Whether you’ve just moved or are looking to redecorate, consider a service like www.craigslist.org or www.freesharing.org to get furniture, appliances, and many other items.
- Consider making your own organic cleaning products using vinegar, borax and baking soda. This improves your interior air quality, limits the environmental impact and saves you money- all without compromising cleaning power.
- Contact Green Collar Energy and get your home or business Green Collar Certified™. They will help you be greener and save you money: www.greencollarenergy.com.
