5 (EASY) Ways to Go Green

#1 - Install Low Flow fixtures. Ultra low -flow toilets use 1.6 gallons per flush, compared to the usual 6 gallons.

#2 - Put your computer to sleep. It is still using energy when the screen fades to black. Either turn off or put it into sleep mode !

#3 - Skip the Bottled water!!!!!!! The oil used to make the plastic water bottles is enough to fuel 100,000 cars per year!

#4 - Fill the Freezer! It will keep your food items cooler without using as much power.

#5 - Rely on cruise control (this one will be impossible for me!) People who use cruise control get up to 15% better gas mileage b/c acceleration us what uses the most gas.
