Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Cleaning with Handiwipes
Use reusable Handi Wipes instead of paper towels for all your wiping, scrubbing, washing, dusting and polishing needs.
Keeping your vehicle in top shape pays off in better gas mileage and less carbon dioxide emissions into the air. Routine tune-ups, properly inflated tires and regular replacement of your car’s air filter yield savings at the gas pump.
Switch from incandescent to compact fluorescent light bulbs. They use 75 percent less energy, last about 10 times longer and cut down on greenhouse gas emissions.
Look for the Label
Next time you’re in the market for a new appliance, look for a model with an Energy Star label, available in more than 50 different product categories. You’ll use a lot less power and save a lot more money on energy bills.
Sleep It Off
When away from your computer for long periods of time, select the Sleep or Hibernation mode to reduce energy usage.
Juice It Up
A half-billion batteries wind up in landfills each year in the U.S. alone, releasing harmful heavy metals like mercury, lead and cadmium into the environment. Buy rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones. A single sustainable battery can be used hundreds, even thousands of times.
The Heat Is On
Buy a programmable thermostat for your home and you’ll recoup the cost of the unit in less than a season. Programmable thermostats allow you to regulate temperatures on a schedule so you don’t waste energy when you’re not home. For every degree you lower the thermostat in the winter, you can cut energy use by about 3%.
Eco Fact: Single-use paper towels generate more than 3,000 tons of waste in the U.S. every single day.
Green Solution: Use reusable Handi Wipes instead of paper towels for all your wiping, scrubbing, washing, dusting and polishing needs.
