Go Green


We know to Recycle, Reuse and Purchase Products Made from Recycled Paper...

but what else can we do?


   *   Donate to Organizations that strive to

         protect our Wildlife, Endangered

         Species, Rainforests & Global Warming. 


   *   Avoid Buying Aerosols, they can't be 

         recycled-which means that they are   

         guaranteed to end up in landfills--and

         some of their ingredients contribute to

         air pollution. 


   *   Eat Organic Produce, which contains

         fewer chemicals than other produce.            

         Chemicals get washed off of farmers'

         fields into rivers & streams, where

         they pollute our water. 


   *   Dispose of Hazardous Waste Properly;

         old paint cans, used motor oil, unused

         pesticides, weed killers and batteries. 

         Call your local city to find out the

         proper way to dispose of such trash

         in your area.

Situation: Air Leaks, Drafts


Solution: “Sealing and insulating the "shell" of your home —

its outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors, and floors — is often the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort. ENERGY STAR estimates that a knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs (or up to 10% on their total annual energy bill) by sealing and insulating.”  -Energy Star

*   Adding insulation blocks heat loss in winter.

*   Properly Insulated Attics can reduce heat loss and save

         up to 20% on energy bills. 

*   Replacing old windows, doors and skylights (they can  

         cause up to 21% of air leakage) with ENERGY STAR

         efficient products that have Low-E glass. 

*   Installation of vinyl siding with foam board insulation.



Situation: High energy bills

Solution: “One reason for high energy bills is an increase in the price of electricity or heating fuel. However, it is common to trace high energy bills to an in-efficient component (windows, heating and cooling equipment, ducts insulation) of your home or a failure of one of these components to perform as intended. It is not always easy to pin-point the problem, but fixing it can make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable.” – Energy Star


*   Purchase Appliances that are ENERGY STAR rated

           (they use about 25% less energy). 

*   Don’t leave the refrigerator door open for long periods

           of time, those extra seconds waste energy.

*   Turn Down the temperature on your Water Heater to

          120 degrees F.

*   Turn Off the Lights when you leave a room.

*   Replace the light bulbs in your highest usage lights with

          ENERGY STAR CFL bulbs.

*   Install an ENERGY STAR qualified programmable

          thermostat and use it to save energy while you are

          away at work.

*   Replace or repair Kitchen and Bathroom Faucets that  

          drip after turned off.

*   Turn Off the Water when you are brushing your teeth.

*   Plant Trees and Shrubs to provide shade in summer.

*   Contact your utility company and ask if they offer any

           programs to help lower energy  bills.

10 tips for better gas mileage

There are ways you can get better gas mileage out of our vehicles – which will save you money in the long run,according to, an online resource for automotive information.

Maintenance – Properly maintained vehicles operate efficiently providing fuel economy.

Inflated Tires - Properly inflated tires can improve fuel economy by as much as 3 percent.

Take a Load Off – The heavier the vehicle the more energy it takes to move it.

Relax - Hitting the gas pedal hard after stopping, slamming on the brakes and speeding all decrease fuel efficiency.

Cruise - Cruise control is a great asset on flat roads, but isn't the most efficient on hilly terrain.

Squeaky Clean – A car washed and waxed improves its aerodynamics, thereby improving fuel efficiency.

Avoid Excessive Idling - Whenever possible, turn your car off while waiting, try to avoid drive-through windows

and long toll booth lines.

A/C or Not - Air conditioning consumes more fuel, while rolled down windows decreases aerodynamics. Roll down windows when in slow-moving traffic; use the air conditioner when traveling at high speeds.

Combine Your Errands - Cold engines use more fuel than warm engines. Combining errands means the engine will be warmer for more of the trip.
