Some Easy Way to go Green This Year

leave a comment »

Now, I’m a college student and feel that going “green” will not only save the environment but it will also save my pocket. Here are some easy ways for the everyday person to go “green.”

PLANT A VEGETABLE GARDEN. Of course, not every college student has the luxury of living 30 minutes away from the fam like I do, but anyone can grow a little green ( I’m not talking about that green). It doesn’t even have to be a vegetable garden, just plant anything. For one, it’ll make your room smell a whole lot better and secondly, it’s a chic magnet. If you can’t grow a plant, how can you grow a family. lol.

BLACKOUT! Choose one day out of the month to have a blackout.  Turn off all the electronics and try to remember life without the laptop, cellphone, and ipod.

ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHT BULBS. Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) use 66% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last up to 10 times longer.

RUN LAUNDRY ON COLD

USE MICROWAVE.It actually save you 66% more energy than the oven.

RECYCLE

DO THE TAP THING. Bottles water isn’t what its cracked up to be. For one, it is overpriced. Secondly, it is a waste of plastic. Lastly, it might not be as beneficial as you think. tap water is more regulated than bottled water and some bottled water is just tap with a clever name.
