Happy Earth Day! 🌎

It’s important to be environmentally conscious, but it can also be expensive!
We’ve rounded up a few ways you can go green and save green…

🚮 Get rid of disposables - Get a reusable water bottle or coffee cup. Bring your lunch in an insulated bag. Switch to a reusable coffee filter in your coffee pot, rather than disposable paper filters. You’ll be spending less in the long-run!

💦 Reduce water usage - take shorter showers and turn off the sink when brushing your teeth. Use cold water when doing laundry, rather than hot. You will definitely see a reduction in your water bill!

🍲 Reduce food waste - stick to your list at the grocery store. Create a meal plan and consider making recipes with leftovers.

🧽 Make your own cleaning supplies - white vinegar is a natural disinfectant and deodorizer and can be used as an all-purpose cleaner. This is a great way to clean chemical-free and save money!

💡 Lightbulb Swap - change out regular lightbulbs for more energy efficient bulbs. This will help reduce your electric bill and conserve energy!
