Going green has become a popular trend that looks like it’s here to stay. Even if you can’t build a new home that is energy efficient or remodel your existing home to make it greener, there are still things you can do at home to help the environment.
First, consider replacing your old incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. These bulbs use up to 80 percent less energy than the older style bulbs. As an added bonus, they last longer so you won’t have to change then as often.
Second, you can attach aerators to your faucets. These little devices attach to the faucet where the water comes out, and mix air into the flow. You’ll use less water, but the water pressure will remain nearly the same as before. There are similar devices available to attach to your shower heads, which will reduce the total amount of water you use while showering.
