|Rise & Shine:
Open your windows. Let the morning breeze cool
you & let the sun light your room. Turn off the A/C
& unplug your lamps.
Your Morning Zap:
Skip the drive to the coffee shop. Brew your own
organic coffee & enjoy it out of your own reusable
Take a Navy shower. Get wet. Turn off the water.
Soap up. Rinse. Get out.
Use the same towel to dry off all week. Less
laundry, more water saved.
Eat healthy, local & organic. Fresh in-season fruits
with organic cereal & milk will give you a feel good
energy to tackle your day.
Take the bike to school or work. If you sweat easily,
bring an extra pair of shirt & some smell good for
an immediate fix. If biking to work is not an option,
carpool or take public transportation.
Just like any goal, living green takes planning & preparation. Prepare your meals, plan out your commute & source of transportation. Be conscious of your day. As time goes on, these practices become habit and ultimately becomes a rewarding lifestyle.
