This Saturday we celebrate Earth Day with more than 190 other countries. This year’s campaign focuses on environmental and climate literacy, for the purpose of building a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change. Learn how you can do your part by visiting the Earth Day Network’s official website. You can save the planet by contributing to an environmental protection agency, attending the March for Science, and making the following adjustments to your daily life.
Insulate Your Home
90% of homes are under insulated, which means that precious heated or cooled air is escaping. Ensuring that your home is well insulated saves you money on your energy bill and decreases your average household energy consumption.
Opt for Energy Efficient Windows
One way that you can improve your home’s insulation is to invest in energy efficient windows. Energy efficient windows allow you to maintain your home at a comfortable temperature without cranking up your heating/cooling unit. This means that your home will use less natural gas or fossil-fuel sources, making it an eco-friendly house.
Choose the Eco-Friendly Lighting Source
Energy efficient light bulbs such as halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lamps, and light emitting diodes typically use about 25-80% less energy than traditional incandescents. They last for 3-25 times longer and they provide softer, more appealing light. Eco-friendly bulbs are more attractive, less costly over time, and promote better energy efficiency.
