Top 3 Reasons to Go Green

February 4, 2015

Becoming eco-friendly in your home or workplace has plenty of benefits, but we've narrowed it down to the top three reasons you should go green today! 

 

Protect the Environment

Simple solutions like insulating your home or office, using an insulation blanket on your hot water heater, turning off electronics when you're not using them, and choosing energy efficient appliances can prevent thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. 

 

Reduce, reuse, recycle so as not to pollute the environment. Reduce energy waste. Reuse certain items like water bottles and shopping bags. Recycle paper, plastic, glass and aluminum. Did you know that it takes less energy to create products from recycled items than it does to create completely new ones!

 

Go with the (low) flow! Water is technically a renewable resource; however, it should not be regarded as unlimited. Installing low flow showerheads and toilets helps save thousands of gallons of water each year. BONUS: They save you money!

 

Protect Your Health

You're not just saving the earth; you're saving yourself as well! With simple changes, you can breathe easier. 

 

Using cleaning products that are free of phosphates, chlorine and petroleum distillates is better for your overall health, and the health of the environment.  

 

Reducing energy or using energy alternatives, recycling, and swapping out your cleaning products for safer ones help prevent pollution, which in turn helps you. 

 

Protect Your Wallet 

 

Being conscious about your everyday practices and the products you use creates a better environment for everyone, and the added bonus is that it helps you save money each year. It's a win-win!

 

Ways to Save Green by Going Green:

 

  • Replace air filters often

  • Make timely repairs
