Simple Tips for Going Green this Summer

Simple Tips for Going Green

At long last summer is finally here. The long days, BBQs, and warm water – it’s hardly a contest to win the prize for my favorite season. Now that the months of anticipation are over it’s about time for the anxiety of its conclusion to kick in. Like a kid on his last week of summer vacation I feel the impending doom of summer’s end…on the first nice day of spring. So like that kid, I take every opportunity to get my jollies in and make the most of summer while I still can. This, of course, means spending as much time outside as I can. Because I enjoy summer and being outdoors so much I can really appreciate the benefits of a healthy environment. Passing on a healthy planet to the next generation, as cheesy as that sounds, really is our responsibility and easy little changes in our everyday habits can really make a big impact. So here now are some easy-to-implement tips for going green this summer.

Need to dry a handful of clothing? Use a clothesline!

If you’ve never worn clothes that have been dried in the sun, then you haven’t lived.  They’re all warm and crispy and leave you feeling like a million bucks. But the best part is that it saves a ton of energy and it’s great for the environment and great on your energy bills.

Regulate AC Usage

This one is tough, even for me and I like the heat, but regulating AC usage can make the biggest difference of any energy saving tip. Try only using AC during the peak heat hours of the day. Make sure all windows are closed while it’s on and when temps begin to cool again, shut it off and enjoy the twilight of summer nights.

Energy Efficient Bulbs (CFL/LED)

On average, an energy efficient bulb runs about 80% more efficiently than a traditional bulb. That translates to big savings for you and the environment.

Use all-natural cleaning agents

Most of the liquids that we use eventually wind up in our oceans, lakes, and rivers. That is why it is so important to use cleaning agents that will not negatively impact the environment. Cleaning agents such as those used by Oxi Fresh carpet cleaning in Phoenix minimize environmental impact because they were made to be safe and non-hazardous.

These simple tips for going green help to ensure that we get to enjoy summer for many years to come. Plus, I don’t know what I’d do without my yearly cycle of anticipation and anxiety.
