Green Energy Ideas for a Home or Office

You may think that you are only one small person. But you have the power to impact the environment for good with your clean energy choices. Want to learn a few places to start?

  1. Reusable Cleaning Products: The big plastic containers that house your cleaning products are filling up the landfill. Choose sustainable cleaning products that offer refills for cleaning containers. Even laundry detergent can be purchased like a dryer sheet and sold in recyclable boxes instead of gallon-sized plastic containers.
  2. Responsibly Sourced Coffee: Sustainable coffee practices include paying farmers a fair wage for the coffee beans and sourcing from an area that does not cut down rainforest trees in order to plant the crop. If you drink coffee daily, then find a company you can trust and throw your support behind it.
  3. Reusable Water Bottle or Coffee Mug: Disposable cups are in the past. Instead, you can choose a colorful, fun water bottle to wash every day. Then you are not throwing away cup after cup each time you get a drink.
  4. Stop Using Disposable Grocery Bags: Make a commitment to bring your own bags to the grocery store. This small adjustment can reduce waste from discarded plastic bags each grocery trip.
  5. Install Solar Panels: Convert the energy from the sun to energy that can be used to power your home. This investment will pay off in the long run and give you more control over your energy needs.

Green energy sources will make you feel better about your choices and reduce the depletion of non-renewable resources. One less paper towel thrown in the trash is one step toward cleaner oceans and reduced landfills.
