Going green means doing things that are good for our environment or that can help make it better. Here are some “green” ideas to get you started or to add to your existing “green routine”:
— Buy things made from recycled materials.
— Carry a reusable shopping bag.
— Walk or ride bikes more than you ride in cars.
— Turn off lights when you leave the room to save energy.
— Make the switch to compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs.
— Turn off the water when you brush your teeth to conserve water.
— Bring your lunch to school in reusable containers instead of using plastic sandwich bags or baggies.
— Keep your food scraps (banana peels, orange peels, potato peels, egg shells, etc.) out of the garbage. Instead, add them to your compost pile or bin.
