8 More Ways to Be Green at Home
We’re always working to be green at work and at home. Here are a few more ideas to encourage you to be environmentally conscious!
By composting your food waste that you usually end up throwing away, you can help the environment! Compost can support valuable nutrients in soil, helping it maintain its quality and fertility. Compost is a natural fertilizer that won’t damage your plants like chemical ones!
#2 Recycle almost everything.
This is pretty self explanatory! It’s always beneficial to recycle your waste instead of throwing it out, provided you follow the proper methods. Even better is to reuse items! If you have a glass jar that once had food in it, you can wash it out and use it for other things!
#3 Try to cut out plastic
It’s important to keep your plastic intake low, since our once beautiful and clean oceans are now riddled with bottles, bags and other plastic items that weren’t recycled. It’s important for our planet, as well as the wildlife living in it, that we try to cut out as much plastic as possible! Try glassware or reusable water bottles! Cutting out plastic is an excellent way to be green.
#4 Fix it, don’t throw it away!
Instead of throwing something out that can’t be recycled, try your best to get it fixed! This could possibly save you money instead of having to invest in something brand new.
#5 Plant some trees
When installing a new roof, if necessary, we will trim and remove your trees at our cost in order to maximize your system’s energy out-put. For every tree we remove, we donate to the National Forest Foundation as our pledge to create a sustainable environment.
#6 Reduce Water Waste.
Make an effort to use less water during your daily tasks. When brushing your teeth, make sure to turn the faucet off while brushing, don’t take long showers, and all in all, just try to reduce the amount of water you use! And while you’re at it, if you need a plumbing repair, Orbit’s got you covered!
#7 Get energy-efficient appliances and electronics.
It’s important to get energy efficient appliances that can help reduce energy use. Orbit offers high quality heating and cooling systems, that can help reduce your energy intake!
