3 Simple Ways To Celebrate Earth Day
I promised you these ideas are SIMPLE and I mean simple. Not many have time on their hands, so see if these fit into your life and join in on the Earth Day celebration
PLANT A TREE
The one simple thing I do each and every year is plant a tree to honor Earth Day.
You can find trees of every size and family at your local nursery, large retailer or home improvement store. Planting one tree and caring for it, is a great way to give back to our earth.
Reuse A Plastic Bag
It all starts with reuse of things we already have and what household does not have plastic bags from a store purchase? Plastic bags can be used for kitty box litter scooping, for collecting old newspapers and placing together for recycling, and even as in-home garbage can liners.
Have a boot that leaks but love them? Use a plastic bag to keep your foot dry. Are you mailing a package? Scrunch a lot of these up, rather than packing foams and allow them to buffer the goods in the package. The uses are endless and you are helping by reusing.
Buy Energy Star Efficient Appliances
This is actually a dual benefit to the environment as well as your financial bottom line. Outdated appliances, those you have had in the house for over 10+ years really are not energy efficient. Times change, appliances are updated and ENERGY STAR is where your savings of both Earth and Money begins.
REFRIGERATORS & ENERGY STAR
With recent improvements in insulation and compressors, today’s refrigerators use so much less energy than the older models. ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators allow you to maximize your energy and dollar savings without sacrificing the features you want. Win, Win!
Did you know that ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators are about 9-10 percent more energy efficient than models that meet the federal minimum energy efficiency standard?
Get rid of that OLD Refrigerator and grab great features coupled with bigger savings.
Here’s an interesting fact:
An estimated 170 million refrigerators and refrigerator-freezers are currently in use in the United States. More than 60 million refrigerators are over 10 years old, costing consumers $4.7 billion a year in energy costs” In fact, ENERGY STAR Certified refrigerators use less energy and reduce our environmental impact.
Fact: If all refrigerators sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $400 million each year and 8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 750,000 vehicles! Astounding results from a simple switch.
First you need to properly recycling your old refrigerator. Then Replace it with a new ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator, and you will find a potential savings of between, $35–$300 on energy costs over its lifetime. Use the ENERGY STAR Savings Calculator to find out exactly how much money you’ll save by replacing your existing refrigerator.
