Household Tips “Brought to you by Eat Greener Denver Restaurants”
- If everyone in the United States flushed the toilet just one less time per day, we could save a lake full of water about a mile long, a mile wide, and four feet deep every day. (http://www.co.maui.hi.us/)
- Check every faucet in the house for leaks. A single dripping faucet can waste far more water in a single day than one person needs for drinking in an entire week. Don’t wait to fix a drip. Do it now! ( http://www.co.maui.hi.us/)
- Turn off your computer- Shutting down your computer at night will save you on average $90 per year on electricity. (thedailygreen.com)
- Turn down your thermostat- For every degree that you turn down your thermostat in the winter, you save 1-3% on your heating bill.  Do the same in reverse for the Summer. (thedailygreen.com)
- Wash laundry with cold water- 90% of the energy used to wash clothes is going towards heating the water.  The higher the temp, the higher the cost to you and the planet. (thedailygreen.com)
- Green up your appliances- Energy Star appliances use 10%-50% less energy than older models.  If just one of ten homes used Energy efficient appliances, it would be equivalent to planting 1.7 million trees!  (msn.com)
