Tuesday Blog Hop: Serving Others

|
Today's topic is serving others. I've decided to put my wonderful green spin on it and tell you 25 ways you can help save your planet. What better way to serve people than by making sure they always have a planet to call home!
  1. Recycle
  2. Turn off unneeded lights in rooms you're not using.
  3. Check that your water heater temp is set at 120 F, and wrap it with an insulated blanket. 
  4. Clean the lint filter in your dryer after every use, so that it uses less energy. 
  5. Wash clothes in warm or cold water, instead of hot. 
  6. Use the compact fluorescent light bulbs. Not only will they save energy, but they save you money as well.
  7. Install weather stripping around doors and windows.
  8. Plant trees to shade your home (and only trim them back at much as you HAVE to) 
  9. Start buy "green-friendly" household cleaners. 
  10. Have your home tested for Radon. 
  11. Copy and print on both sides of the paper. 
  12. When at all possible, use recycled products.
  13. Use a low-flow shower head. 
  14. Make a compost pile. 
  15. Leave the grass clippings on the yard when you mow, so that they will decompose and return much needed nutrients back into the ground. 
  16. Use natural fertilizer and pesticides. 
  17. Walk whenever possible. 
  18. Hang clothes up to dry instead of turning on the dryer. 
  19. Start your own garden.
  20. Fix all the water leaks around your home. 
  21. Cut back on the plastic bottles.
  22. Don't buy products that have a bunch of packaging.
  23. Cut meat out of your diet at least once a week. 
  24. Buy local foods and support local business'. 
  25. Go paperless. Reroute all your bills and bank statements to your email.
