Green Tip of the Month (April)
“Green purchasing” can make a difference! “Green purchasing” means purchasing products that help conserve resources, save energy and prevent waste. Try one of the following three easy ways to buy “Green” in honor of Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22nd: 1.) Buy Durable Products – instead of buying disposable products, buy things that last a long time, such as rechargeable batteries & reusable mugs; 2.) Avoid excess packaging – look for products that have less packaging or buy in bulk – you’ll have less to discard/recycle; and 3.) Buy energy-efficient items – look for the Energy Star logo when buying electronics. Why does “Green purchasing” make a difference? It sends a strong message to companies that its consumers care about the environment and will use their purchasing power to support companies with a similar philosophy.
