Tips to Eco your home

Cut back on using paper towels

Keep the freezer full, even with ice.

Bring your own bag

Toss food scraps instead of sending them down the garbage disposal. It’ll save you 2,000 gallons of water per year, not to mention electricity

Put a half gallon jug filled with water in your toilets water tank to displace water could imitate a low flow toilet and save you 4,000 gallons of water a year.

Draw the curtains. You can save 25% on heat in the winter and AC in the summer just by using your curtains or shades.

Running your dishwasher rather than washing dishes by hand can actually save water. Washing by hand can use 6 times more water.
