One of my family’s New Year’s resolutions this year was to focus on finding more ways to go green. The kids have been learning about the environment in school, which has made it a team effort. Doing our part is kind of a win-win for us too, as giving back also helps us save money.
Simple changes like unplugging the electronics when you go to bed can help cut down on the energy bill. Instead of jumping to turn on the heater the moment you start to get cold, put on a pair of socks and a sweatshirt first. There are many small ways you can make a big difference in no time.
Just check out these 10 ways you, too, can go green this year.
