Plenty of us nowadays want to be more Eco friendly, but just don’t know what we can do to help. This article will give you a few ideas on how to be more environmentally friendly and at the same time save you dollars and may improve your health.

Give away your old glasses

Supporting many of people around the world with sight problems is as easy and recycling your old glasses. With about 87% of the world’s sight impaired living in under or developing countries, this little act can make a big difference their lives. Your old glasses can change their life quality alot. Apart from helping with pollution, giving away your old glasses will without a doubt make you feel great.

Get a rain container

Why use water from in the house, which you are charged for, when there is a brilliant and free resource outdoors – the rain! You don’t need to go to the expense of purchasing a barrel, even though there are lots of different types in the shops, when you can make your own.

Put out clothes to dry naturally

Many of our parents didn’t have this kind of technology, as a result had no choice but to dry clothing the natural way. Hanging clothes in the garden keeps them fresh and smelling great, is eco friendly and saves money. Do not worry; it will not harm your social stading. Being enviornmentally friendly is in – do not feel apologetic, feel great instead!

Take a shower, it saves on water consumption

Heating water consumes a lot of energy, costs a lot of your dollars, and too much bathing or excessive showering can cause health problems, too! Chlorinated water is fine to drink, but when you breathe the chlorine from the hot shower steam, you inhale chlorine in quite high concentrations which are a hazard to your health. Save more money by put in a shower head that controls the flow and amount of water you use, you will be shocked at the difference this can make.

Travel to work in the same vehicle as a friend

Car sharing has been a fashionable topic for a number of years, also actively championed by the authorities. Unfortunately, as a Toronto condos realtor I need to drive a lot. An average car commuter drives approximately 20 kilometres a day. Dropping that by half by car sharing saves approximately 400 kilograms of carbon dioxide over one year, or about 170 litres of petrol. See if your work place runs a car sharing scheme or would support you in starting one; if not there is no reason why you can speak to friends yourself and see if you can get one started.
