Around the Home Thursday

Need some more "green" ideas?  Here are some things to think about...

--Only run the dishwasher when completely full.  This is getting harder as the family gets bigger.
--Adopt a highway, stream, etc.
--Buy things with less packaging.  Examples: bulk spices, no prepackaged raisins, etc.
--Donate slightly used, unwanted items.
--Eliminate the words "paper plates" and "paper cups" from your vocabulary.
--Eliminate hidden energy suckers like the space around your door or an inefficient water heater.
--Keep your freezer as full as possible.  It will run more efficiently.
--Use the back of printer paper as scratch paper.
--Use recyclable batteries.
