Bottle it up
Plastic water bottles can be a waste to the environment, between the plastic bottles not getting recycled, or the fact that it takes 3x the amount of water to make them, then is actually in the water bottle. Get a reusable water bottle that you can fill to your heart’s content. Challenge yourself to drink more water, and be good to your body and the planet.

It’s a wash
Switching to the cold-water laundry cycle saves energy and saves you a significant amount of money each year. Hang-drying clothes not only saves energy and cash, but also extends their lifespan and humidifies the room.

Grow on
Growing your own food is a surefire way to reduce the carbon footprint of refrigerated trucks and importing of food from other countries. Try growing tomatoes, salad greens, or green beans. Or, for those without a garden, windowsill herbs are an excellent way to save the environment and your wallet.

Carpool party
Carpooling to work or events is a great way to go green. Fewer cars on the road means less carbon emissions, and you’ll save money on gas. Enjoy the company in the car, and blast some jams while you’re at it.
