Go Green 2013

Wherever you find yourself on the Green Neighbor path, there’s always another step to take.  What steps will you take this year?  Will you...

  • Step Up Your Flush? According to the EPA, a new toilet can save 13,000 gallons of water and $110 per year.  And they are not that expensive -- a new toilet can pay for itself in just a few years.
  • Feel Better in a Sweater? Wearing a sweater adds 2 - 4 degrees to your body warmth -- if you lower the thermostat that much, you can save 2% - 10% on your heating bill!  Pull on that sweater and try setting the thermostat at 65 to 68 degrees, and see how it goes.  You may burn a bit less natural gas, which is good for our water supplies and the climate.  Plus, you'll make Aunt Tillie very very happy.
  • Get active? Do you feel like we should be doing a lot more to preserve a livable planet, but don't know where to begin?  Drop us a line! There are so many things we can do, and so many of them work better when we do them together.
