4 Ways You Can Start Saving the Earth Today
Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 and every day!
This year’s Earth Day campaign focuses on achieving environmental and climate literacy throughout the world. This year, take part in the initiative by donating to a local environmental cause, participating in the March for Science, and making a few minor adjustments to your daily routine. Here are four ways that you can start saving the Earth today.
Turn the Tap Off
Whether you’re washing your hands or watering the bushes, make sure you’re using your water efficiently. By cutting off the hose or turning off the faucet you can potentially save hundreds of gallons of fresh water.
Opt for Energy Efficient Lighting
The average household dedicates about 5% of its energy budget to lighting. Making the energy efficient switch can help decrease that percentage. Energy efficient lighting such as halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lamps, and light-emitting diodes use less energy than their traditional incandescent bulbs.
Dry Your Clothes the Old Fashioned Way
According to the Department of Energy, about 6% of electricity use in your home goes toward the clothes dryer alone. Decrease that number by 100% simply by hanging your clothes on a line outside. This chore will be even easier to complete now that the Maryland weather is starting to heat up.
Maintain Your HVAC System
Ensure that your system isn’t running harder than it has to and have it professionally maintained. An inefficient HVAC unit can lead to early system failure and major energy loss. Have your system maintained, and check for any energy leaks that may be occurring. If you live in Portland, Oregon you might want to contact someone like Willard Power Vac.
