Red Goes Green Tips

Power your home with clean, renewable energy. Ask your local electric utility about green power supply options for your home.

Donate unwanted items in your home, such as clothing, appliances, or even your old sports gear, instead of throwing them away. Not only will you reduce waste, but you'll be giving back to your community.

Save resources at home or at work by using less paper or choosing paper made from a high percentage of recycled material. Choose electronic versions and print only when necessary. Set printer settings to double-sided to cut your paper use and costs in half by printing on both sides.

Switch to energy efficient light bulbs like CFLs or LEDs. If every home in America replaced just one traditional bulb with a CFL, it would save enough energy to light more than three million homes.

Reduce waste by placing collection bins in various places around your home and office to make recycling convenient. Use different bins that follow your city's recycling policies so you don't have to separate it out later.

Save energy and reduce carbon emissions by adjusting temperatures five-eight degrees (down in winter, up in summer). This can help save energy if you are going to be away from home for several hours.

Reduce carbon emissions by carpooling, biking or taking public transit to work at least once a week.

Help in cutting waste and saving energy by drinking water from your own reusable bottle. Refill a reusable bottle wherever you go and skip single-serve plastic bottles.
