Greening Your Apartment

Do you like the idea of saving money while also doing your part to make the planet a nicer place to live? All it takes is exerting a little extra bodily energy and making a mental commitment to take some common sense steps. You may be tired of all the hoopla about “Going Green” and the sheer magnitude of the campaign can be overwhelming, but you can take a few simple steps to do your part.

It makes common sense that if you turn off electronic devices and unplug electrical appliances you will conserve energy and save on your utility bills. And if you aren't easily convinced, do a simple tabulation of how much energy different appliances consume. Nickles and dimes are literally falling out of your pocket. Do you leave your television on all day even when you aren't watching? Is it essential to have all the lights in your apartment on a once? Flipping a switch is easy. Once you adopt the new mindset, the routine is natural. You save money by saving energy and the environment benefits by your saving.

The same common sense approach applies to your transportation needs. Your health benefits when you walk or bike instead driving, your vehicle pollutes less, and you buy less fuel. Both you and the planet benefit from this alternate approach. And even when weather is too severe for walking and biking, alternate transportation such as the bus or rail system provide ways to travel with less impact on the environment.

You only have to look at the nation's bulging landfills to realize how much over consumption and waste is damaging our planet. Paper consumption means cutting trees. Trees are vital to environmental balance. So simple steps like using digital communication rather than paper can lead to tremendous savings for our planet. You spend less on paper, on energy consumption to print it, on the expense of getting the paper from point A to point B, and fewer pages go into a dumpster and from there to a landfill. Simple steps by everyone lead to giant benefits for everyone.
