Here are the top five LIVE GREEN pledges
according to Recyclebank.com:
- Maintain your air conditioner, keep the equipment clean and give the unit an annual tune-up.
- Use reuseable water bottles, this is not only good for the environment by eliminating plastic waste, it saves you money as well.
- Buy organic produce, check out a local farmer's market.
- Raise your air conditioner's temperature settings, the smaller the difference between outside and inside temperatures, the less the air conditioner has to work to cool the inside space.
- Program your thermostat for energy efficiency, if your thermostat isn't programmable, make manual adjustments when you leave and re-enter the house.
