10 Things You Can do Now to Help the Planet


With climate change seeming like an uphill battle. Here is a list of 10 things you can do to help the planet, and save money!

  1. Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out.

  2. turn off lights when not in use.

  3. Install a low-flow showerhead. They don't cost much, and the water and energy savings can quickly pay back your investment.

  4. Walk or bike to work.

  5. Buy local food where possible.

  6. Stop buying bottled water, replace with a reusable water bottle.

  7. Donate or recycle electronics.

  8. Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies.

  9. Use non-toxic cleaners. All you need are a few simple ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap.

  10. Think before buying anything that is plastic.
