50 Tips to Living Green

We are all made of excuses when it comes to living green… but fluorescents don’t work well to light kitchens or bathrooms, but I need room in my car for my family, but I like my house at 72 degrees. The list goes on and on.

But there are easy ways to living greener, and they aren’t as hard or lifestyle changing as one might think.

Kathleen King gives us 50 easy tips to lessening our impact on our environment, that are all easy to do and can be executed with relative ease and little money… today.

In her “Divine Caroline” article, the first 5 tips start with:

1. Lower your thermostat. Buy a programmable thermostat.

2. Reuse your water bottle. Avoid buying bottled water. In fact, reuse everything at least once, especially plastics.

3. Check out your bathroom. Use low-flow faucets, showerheads, and toilets.

4. Start a compost in your back yard or on your rooftop.

5. Buy foods locally. Check out Eat Local Challenge and FoodRoutes to get started. Buy locally made products and locally produced services.

These are all easy to do and don’t require much effort on our part. Click here to read the full 50 tips at
