As a child of this earth (human), you really ought to at least consider the possibility of having a greener lifestyle. You only get one Planet Earth and we should all be doing our best to live with the planet instead of against it.
Sure, there are plenty of big things you can change in your daily life, but that usually seems a little daunting to the uninitiated. That’s why, instead, we have a few smaller things you can do to make a big difference.
1. Look at your energy provider. See if you can get one that draws its energy through green methods. There are plenty out there and sites like http://www.electricitycompaniestexas.com/ are a great place to start your search.
2. If your neighborhood doesn’t have a recycling program, start doing the research and write your local municipality. If you have a local dump in the area that recycles, consider making a trip out there about once a month with your recyclables.
3. Minimize the waste of water, energy and heat. Be mindful when you leave the water running and if you have any high-energy electronics, especially gaming consoles, be sure to unplug them. Even in the off position they can draw power.
If you follow these tips, you’ll be doing more than enough to live in harmony with the Earth. You’ll be living your life like it’s green.
