Helping Mother Earth in your Apartment in Gainesville Has Never Been Easier
Recycling, saving water, and switching to bio fuel are all ways that we can help the environment, but sometimes it’s important to get creative. By reducing our carbon footprint, we can be conscientious and have a lot of fun.
One way to start tailoring a “green plan” for yourself is to think about how much waste you create each day. Do you read a daily newspaper? Do you buy a lot of prepackaged foods? Are you constantly throwing water bottles and soda cans into the garbage? For a few days, be especially aware of what you toss, then think of ways that you can “clean up” your lifestyle in your new apartment in Gainesville. Below are just a few tips that can help you get started:
- Do you get a lot of catalogues in the mail? Make a quick phone call or shoot an email to the company and let them know that you no longer want to receive the catalogue by mail—shop until you drop online!
- Buy a reusable water bottle that you refill every day. It’s important to stay hydrated when you live in Florida, but it’s even more important to keep trash out of our landfills.
- Have an empty wine bottle? Rinse it out, fill it with water, add a few fresh flowers, and make it the centerpiece of your kitchen table to give your apartment some shabby-chic character.
- Take reusable bags to the grocery store. Not only are they bigger and sturdier, but most grocery stores and retail stores will even give you a slight discount when you bring your own bags, so you get to save some green while you go green.
- Have some newspapers lying around? Just smooth out a few sheets and put them aside, then purchase an inexpensive palette of watercolors at your local craft store. Paint a few freestyle designs on the paper and you’ve just made your present even more thoughtful and personalized.
