If you’re like many people in Tampa (and beyond), you’re interested in finding out how you can make your life more “green.”
In addition to taking big steps like installing solar panels, there are a handful of things you can do to live in a more sustainable way.
How to Live Green: 3 Expert Tips
Switch to e-Bills
Most people who send you bills have online options—and making the switch to e-bills from paper bills can make a huge impact on the environment.
Buy No-VOC Materials
Many household items, including furniture and cleaning supplies, contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. These compounds are the reason that indoor air pollution levels are more than five times more dangerous than outdoor pollution levels are. Check what you’re buying; if it contains VOCs, find a different product.
Switch to LED Lights
About 12 percent of your energy bill probably goes toward lighting. The best way to save money and reduce your carbon footprint is to replace all your bulbs—inside and outside—with LEDs. They’re cheaper to power and more eco-friendly, and they last between 10 and 20 times longer than incandescent bulbs do.
