3 Easy Steps To Make Your Home ‘Green’ and Save $
Step #1: Change the light bulbs. Replacing one light bulb with a compact fluorescent or LED bulb can save almost $50 over its lifetime. Shop for environmental products at: www.greenhome.com.
Step #2: Replace bathroom faucets. Water-efficient products can save an average family 500 gallons of water each year. Faucets account for about 15% of a family’s water consumption. Learn more at: www.epa.gov/watersense.
Step #3: Recycle gray water. An average bath uses 30 to 50 gallons of water and it flows into the same sewer system as when you flush the toilet. A better use of this “gray water” from showers, tubs, and washing machines is to water the landscape. It conserves water, lowers the load on sewer systems, and saves money.
