How You Can Help


•Consolidate your purchases into one bag rather than getting a new bag at each store.

•Plan your shopping in advance. Save money on fuel by making fewer trips to the stores.
Avoid last minute shopping when you won’t have time to make careful choices.

•When buying electronics, remember to buy rechargeable batteries to go with them.

•Electronics. Never throw old computers, monitors, TV’s, printers, or other electronics in the landfill. Instead, donate them to a local charity for reuse, or find out about your local e-cycling programs.

•Reduce the amount of trash you throw away and reuse products before you throw them out or recycle them. This creates the least impact on the planet and our resources.

•Compost your food waste. Fruits and vegetables and their peels, pits and seeds are all perfect for composting, a great natural fertilizer.


•Turn Off The Heat When Not Home


•Use Leftovers, Don't Waste
