SAVE WATER

  • Check your faucets and showerheads – even small leaks can contribute to large wastes of water and energy; check your faucets and showerheads to make sure they are completely off when not in use.
  • Turn off your faucet when brushing – even a simple measure like turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth can have a big impact and help you save over 200 gallons of water per month if done consistently in the morning and at night!

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

  • Learn the right way to recycle - check out the Waste Wizard to learn more about the proper way to recycle different types of items.
  • Reduce plastic waste - wherever possible, try to cut out disposable plastics like bottles, straws, and bags to avoid them going into the waste stream. 
  • Think before you print – unless it is to sign, draw, or write, try to read documents on your computer as opposed to printing them out and use two-sided printing to minimize paper and ink use. 
  • Plant seeds from vegetables or fruits – whether in your backyard or in household pots with good access to sunlight, try growing plants from the seeds of fruits or vegetables like peppers or tomatoes as a great way to jump into gardening.
