ACT GREEN

We gather good information and tips here for having a green life style. It’s not that complicated that you might think. Follow us and use the simple daily tips to reduce our footprints on the environment. Teach your children to have more healthy life and be a person who cares about the planet.

At Work

Use the back of a draft or unwanted printout instead of notebooks. Even with a double-sided printer there is likely to be..

Set computers to energy-saving settings and make sure to shut them down when you leave for the day (“standby” settings will continue to draw power even when not in use).

At Home

Completely turn off equipment like televisions and stereos when you’re not using them.

Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but it generates large amounts of container waste.

In Your Garden

Plant local species of trees, flowers and vegetables.

Start a compost pile. Composting takes your kitchen scraps and converts them to nutrient-rich food for your soil. You’ll add less trash to the landfill and make your plants happy.

At Shopping

Look for products that have less packaging.

Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmers keeps money in the local economy.

At Holidays

Don’t leave any rubbish at the beach – it can be very dangerous for the wildlife.

Eat sustainable food and avoid disposable containers and extra packaging.

3R (Reduce, Reuse,Recycle)

Share magazines with friends and pass them on to the doctor, dentist or local hospital for their waiting rooms.

Use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones.
