How-To: Green Your Life Without Spending Any Money

So, I've told you how to go green in the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room without spending money, and hopefully you'll take note. But, there are a few other ways you can become a better friend to the Earth by making changes around the house and in your lifestyle. To hear them,

.

  • Donate any housewares and clothes you no longer need to a local donation center or Goodwill.
  • Get a library card.
  • Ride your bike, walk, carpool, or drive at a steady, reasonable speed whenever possible.
  • Turn your lights off when you leave a room and your house.
  • Prevent phantom energy loads by plugging your appliances into a power strip.
  • Set your thermostat at a reasonable 68°F.
  • Forgo turning on your elliptical machine and do some exercise that requires no electricity! Go for a run. Ride your bike. Lift weights. Work on your garden. Do some Spring cleaning.
