Easy Green Weekend Projects

Busy doing chores this weekend?  Have a few minutes to spare?  Here's a few green projects that can make a difference in your house and community (and they may already be part of your to do list)!

Less than 10 minutes:
  • Replace your shower heads with low flow ones
  • Replace your air filters
  • Clean your vents, ducts, and fans
  • Replace your light bulbs with compact florescent bulbs, or CFL bulbs

Less than 30 minutes:
  • Clean off your patio furniture-all you need is a hose, spray bottle filled with diluted vinegar, and an old cloth or toothbrush
  • Start a compost bin-build it yourself or buy one and start collecting materials to fill it up
    • This can take up a nice corner of your backyard or try a smaller, enclosed outdoor one or a container that can even fit under your sink
  • Build or buy a rain barrel...if you already have one-water your plants!
  • Line dry your laundry outside

A few extra minutes to spare:
