Go Green Around the House

Make every room eco-friendly by following these 13 go-green tips!

BATHROOM

Chose Cloth Products
The average American uses six trees worth of paper each week! To save some tress (and money) use cloth products when you can. Use T-shirts to clean up spills around the house, and toss them in the wash when you’re done!

Go Low
Reduce water consumption by 30 percent! Simply switch out your showerhead for a low-flow version ($17 at ConservationWareHouse.com) and install a low-flow faucet aerator ($14 at ConservationWareHouse.com)

Keep Cool
Unless your clothes are super soiled (think diving into the mud dirty), you can wash your clothes with warm or even cold water. This will reduce the use of hot water and energy!

Clear out the Lint
This little, and often forgotten trick, can make a big difference! Clean the lint filter before each laundry load to unlock the airflow, which makes items dry more efficiently and quicker. It will also lengthen the life of your dryer, so you won’t have to spend hundreds to replace it!
