If this is the case, then try to consider your daily habits and think about making little tweaks to them.

Here are just a few ideas that can help you out:
1. Do your best not to make so much trash. This means to use real dishware instead of paper and plastic plates, forks, and spoons. It means being cognizant of how much toilet paper and tissue paper you go through every day. It means using dishtowels you can rewash instead of paper towels to keep the house clean.
2. Another fun way to go green is to get some small pots and begin to grow your own herbs, seasoning, and veggies in your house. This is relatively easy- something you can simply do some research on online or in person at Home Depot or Lowe’s for you to have these things ready on demand to reduce gas by driving to the store. It’s also just fun and promotes healthy eating.
3. Use less water if possible, even if you cut your shower time by two minutes.
4. Be mindful of how much electricity you use.
