Ways to Save Money Around your Home by Going Green

Here are some tips for being ecofriendly in your home. Not only do these actions help save the planet but they can also be highly beneficial for your budget, too. While some green energy home improvements take an upfront investment, there are others that you can start doing today for free.

 

In the Bathroom:

๐ŸŒŽInstall sink water aerators.
๐ŸŒŽInstall low-flow shower heads.
๐ŸŒŽTurn down the temperature of your water heater. Who takes a shower at the max heat your hot water heater can pump out? Pretty sure none of us. Instead of making your hot water heater work overtime in keeping the water extra hot, turn down the temperature setting. This will make big changes to your electric bill.
๐ŸŒŽTime your showers. On average, 2.1 gallons of water is used every minute in the shower. That adds up quickly!

 

 

In the Laundry Room:

๐ŸŒŽLine dry your clothes. ๐˜‹๐˜ณ๐˜บ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ โ€œ๐˜Œ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜จ๐˜บ ๐˜š๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณโ€ ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จโ€”๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ตโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜จ๐˜บ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ.
๐ŸŒŽWait till you have a full load of laundry to wash & wash your clothes in cold water.
๐ŸŒŽBuy bulk and concentrated detergents. The smaller the item, the more the packaging. Packaging is a major contributor to waste, but it doesn’t have to be if you buy smart. Buying items in bulk and choosing concentrated detergents won’t just cut down on packaging: it will also save you money.
๐ŸŒŽUse cold water for washing.ย According to the EPA, 90% of the energy used in washing is spent heating water, which is often needless. Guess what? Washing in hot water wears clothes faster and sets stains, too.

 

 

In the Kitchen:

๐ŸŒŽKeep your fridge coils clean
๐ŸŒŽRun your dishwasher only when it is full
๐ŸŒŽChoose an Energy-Efficient Appliancesย 
๐ŸŒŽInvest in Long-Lasting Cookware
