Live Green.
Easy tips to help save the Earth

Being a friend to the environment is the latest trend, and for good reason. You’ve probably seen helpful hints everywhere, so we’ll skip the obvious ones and give you a few you may not have heard before. See the bottom footnote for more. Remember, you can make a difference.

1. LANDSCAPE WITH NATIVE PLANTS
Earthcare can help! Check out the article on the EPA website.

2. RECYCLE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE!
Computers, batteries and other electronics can be recycled and even refurbished. You can get refurbished electronics for a steal (they often sell for less than 50 percent of the retail price!), and before they’re resold to the public, they go through an intense defect-testing process and the warranties usually remain intact. So you can save money and help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. Shop at www.dyscern.com and www.refurbdepot.com.

3. GET OFF JUNK MAIL LISTS
GreenDimes can get you started. They’ll even plant a tree for you!

4. CAR POOL
Connect with other commuters at eRideShare or consider a car sharing service like Zipcar.

5. BE WATER CONSCIOUS
Wash your clothes in cold water. By using cold water instead of warm, you can avoid emitting carbon dioxide and save on energy bills. Take shorter or more conservative showers by turning off the water while lathering up. Turn off the water while you brush your teeth.

6. PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS — invest in green investments. Websites like Co-op America's National Green Pages™ can help.
