Here’s some of our tips for going green, while saving your green this summer:
1. Ditch the gym membership and get outdoors
Gym membership monthly payments can really add up. Consider putting a freeze on your gym membership just during the summer months. Take advantage of the beautiful weather and move your workouts to public parks, local trails, or free recreational facilities.
2. Utilize public transportation for trips to the beach and parks
Rather than driving, consider carpooling or using public transportation a few times a week. Not only will this save you money, but it’s a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. In addition to saving money on gas, you’ll also save money by avoiding the pricey parking fees that spike during summer months.
3. Take up gardening
Talk about a sustainable way to feed your family! By planting your own fresh veggies, you’ll save on weekly grocery bills and you can turn gardening into a fun family activity. Plus, going organic is a great way to feed your family nutritious meals.
4. Be energy efficient in the home
A great way to save on electricity is to open windows, drapes and curtains whenever possible and turn off lights. Do more outside, like eating and even cooking meals. Cooking outside is more energy efficient, as it reduces appliance usage, plus it keeps the house from heating up during the cooking process. Turn down your water temperature and consider adopting an energy saving AC system or solar panels to power your home.
