Earth Day

Created back in 1970, Earth day was established as a teaching movement that would bring awareness to things like oil spills, deforestation and ever-changing climate.

5 ways that we can celebrate and join in on saving and protecting our planet are;

  1. Having reusable water bottles and straws to help cut down on plastic
  2. Planting a tree to help provide cleaner air
  3. Get involved in a community clean up
  4. Commit to collecting recyclables for a month
  5. Walk, ride a bike or carpool to cut down on emissions

WM_Energy-Saving_10.19

Knowing how to save energy doesn’t just mean turning off all the lights and having the thermostat set to an ideal temperature; but learning how some small changes could also save you big money this winter season.

Here are some helpful tips on staying warm without burning a hole in your pocket:

  1. Use weather stripping, quilted curtains and draft stoppers on your doors to insulate your home to help keep the heat in.
  2. Set thermostat as low as comfortably possible, try using layered clothes and blankets as oppose to raising the thermostat temperature
  3. Unplug all appliances and electronics that are easy to plug in and use when needed such as phone chargers, coffee makers, hair tools and gaming systems.
  4. Replace the heater’s filter as often as recommended by the manufacturer
  5. Have air vents professionally cleaned to ensure that the maximum air flow is entering the home

St. Patrick’s Day

Later this week, many people will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Do you know why people wear green on this Irish holiday? Legend has it that if you’re wearing the color green, leprechauns won’t be able to see you. If they can’t see you, they can’t pinch you. So, the question remains…will you wear green on Sunday and avoid a pinch?
