Save Green By Going Green At Home This Spring (Part 4 of 4)

Teaching your family to shut off the water while they are brushing their teeth is another small, helpful change that can be made. Also, make sure to fix any water leaks, faulty weather stripping, or insulation gaps that might be present in your home right away before money and energy are lost to them.

The list of smart, functional changes you can make around your home goes on and on but the important thing is to start incorporating some small changes, a few at a time, as soon as possible. As you start to see the benefits of these changes you will almost certainly be inspired to make more and more changes like them.

If you have a nice sunny spot available on your property, you might want to consider tilling yourself an area for a garden. Not only does it have the potential to provide fresh, organic fruits and vegetables for your family to eat during the year, it will also beautify your property and provide a healthy hobby for you and your family members to pursue.

If you live in an apartment, you might be able to find a small garden spot on a balcony for some tomato and pepper plants or even a spot next to a sunny window for an herb garden. Growing plants indoors will also provide your home with decoration and a more earthy feel. You will get a lot of enjoyment out of using your own fresh foods and herbs in your cooking throughout the year and if you have a surplus, your friends and neighbors might even get a chance to enjoy them too. We’ll talk about this in next time.

Don’t forget to protect those you love and care for the most with a home security system, which can provide a lifeline in case of medical emergencies, fires, and of course burglaries. I personally recommend ADT home security systems. ADT is the leading provider of home security systems in the U.S., with more than 100 years of experience.
