Conservation is the act of conserving or preserving resources. Not only is conservation friendly to the environment, practicing conservation can help reduce your monthly utility bills.
Follow the links below to help your family save green (both trees and cash):
- Freecycle - An online community of sharing unwanted items to keep them out of the landfill.
- Composting - Yard trimmings and food residuals together constitute 24 percent of the U.S. municipal solid waste stream. That's a lot of waste to send to landfills when it could become useful and environmentally beneficial compost instead!
- Catalog Choice - A free service that lets you decline paper catalogs you no longer wish to receive. Reduce the amount of unsolicited mail in your mailbox while protecting the environment.
- Earth 911 - Your one-stop shop for all you need to know about reducing your impact, reusing what you've got and recycling trash.
