WHAT CAN WE DO TO ACHIEVE A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE?

Return to Our 'Green' Committment

 

  • Walk, bike or use public transportation instead of using personal cars.
  • Start recycling basic everyday items, such as paper, plastic and metal products.
  • Eat organic food.
  • Support organic and green production.
  • Save water in every opportunity. (Especially in the bathroom where families waste the most.)
  • Don’t let hot water run continuously when you shave.
    Close the drain and fill the basin with water instead.
  • Try to run your dishwasher only once a day or when fully loaded
    and use the shortest cycle that will clean the dishes. 
  • Wash only full loads of laundry. 
  • Try to avoid hot water in the washing machine (Cold water is often better for your clothes.)
  • Use only the necessary lights and get into the habit of turning off those that are not in use.
  • Use compact fluorescent light bulb or LED.
  • Try energy efficient products.
  • Unplug appliances and other electronics when not in use.
  • Switch to renewable energy (Most likely your energy supplier can do it for you upon request.)
  • Support local businesses like farming, production systems, services, etc.
  • Bring your own cloth or fabric bags when you shop.
  • Bring your own mug to work for coffee.
  • Stop buying new bottles of water. Reuse existing bottles.
  • Print only what is necessary.
  • Use lighter weight paper when printing.
  • Try to copy on both sides of the paper.
  • Consider purchasing eco envelopes for mailing.
  • Use your e-mail and other tech-savvy alternatives whenever possible.
  • Save trees by stopping unsolicited junk mail. (More than 100 million trees are destroyed each year to produce junk mail. 42% of timber harvested nationwide becomes pulpwood for paper).
  • Switch to paperless statements for credit cards, bank statements, etc.
  • Support recycled paper products.
  • Avoid requesting catalogs that are not needed.
  • Purchase products made with recycled materials.
  • Try natural cleaners.
  • Use natural body care products.
