Living Green on Earth Day

DSCN8456Live Green to Conserve Energy and Protect the Environment!

From roofing to flooring, “eco-friendly” materials and devices can help you save money when you’re maintaining, repairing or improving your home.

Even better, they help save the environment.

Consider these simple ways to conserve energy and other natural resources.

Use impact-resistant roof shingles made from asphalt, metal or simulated tile. They deflect hail, wind and fire better than traditional shingles and keep roofing material out of landfills.

Replace appliances more than ten years old with energy-efficient models, which could save you hundreds of dollars a year according to the EPA.

 Install low-flow showerheads and toilets to conserve water.

 Exchange your most-used lighting fixtures for Energy Star models to help reduce greenhouse gasses.

Switch to compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, which can save more than $30 in electricity costs compared to an ordinary incandescent bulb.

 Substitute recycled plastic lumber for concrete, work and metal in decks, fences, swing sets and landscaping.

 Choose renewable flooring materials when you build or redecorate, such as bamboo, cork, reclaimed glass and salvaged wood.

 Lay carpeting made from natural, organic or fair-trade fibers that are friendly to the environment and hypoallergenic.

 HAPPY EARTH DAY!
