How Do You "Go Green"?

How do you GO GREEN?

Recycle paper, glass, and plastics
Use reusable shopping bags
Conserve water (turn off faucet when brushing teeth, short showers, etc)
Bike or walk instead of driving whenever possible

Green Tip of the Month:

Save natural resources, as well as late fees, by enrolling in easy, online bill-paying options with your bank, credit card companies, cable and utility providers. Paperless billing not only saves trees; it also eliminates the fossil fuel (read: CO2 emissions) needed to get all those dozens and dozens of billing envelopes from them to you and back again. Plus, you’ll save money on stamps, which can really add up over time.
