10 Ways to Live Green Year Round

Orange County Living GreenAs California suffers from a drought, it is important that you keep in mind how your daily lifestyle habits are affecting the environment. We have many more years left on our beautiful planet and have to think about how our impact will affect our children’s lives and our grandchildren’s lives. Consider eliminating these 10 daily habits to reduce your carbon footprint:

  1. Your parents tried to rid this habit of you your entire life – stop leaving the lights on! Get yourself in the habit of turning off the lights each time you leave a room.
  2. Many people don’t realize how much water and energy is wasted when they boil the kettle. Most people boil too much water so it is a good idea to purchase an energy efficient kettle so that you can pre-measure how much water is actually needed for a single cup or single pot of tea.
  3. You don’t have to go vegetarian or vegan but it is important that you stop eating farmed meat. Acres of rain forest are destroyed each year to fulfill out insignificant needs of farmed meat.
  4. Stop commuting! Whenever possible, walk or bike to your destination.
  5. With technology in our lives now, there is no reason for you to be wasting paper.
  6. Whether you are brushing your teeth, washing the dishes, or shaving, it is important that you refrain from leaving the water running.
  7. Many California counties have banned plastic bags in grocery stores. Now, you just have to stop using them!
  8. Refrain from buying products that are packaged in plastic.
  9. Living green can be as simple as flushing your toilet less will make a significant impact on the well-being of the environment.
  10. Most importantly, recycle! One of the worst habits is sending biodegradables to landfill sites.
