TIP #1 Be mindful of your thermostat. Turn your thermostat down when you are away or while sleeping, or create a schedule with a smart thermostat. This will help keep your bills and greenhouse gas emissions down.
TIP #2 Try using less plastics & reuse. Switch to glass containers and choose reusable shopping bags and beeswax wraps to replace your plastic cling wrap. You can also refill plastic cleaning bottles you might usually throw away with all-natural cleaners.
TIP #3 Opt for reusable or compostable paper towels and napkins. If you have to purchase paper towels, choose compostable ones. They may be a little bit more expensive, but the impact is HUGE.
