Going Green: What to Do this Earth Day

April 22nd is Earth Day. It's your opportunity to celebrate our Earth and the resources we’ve been provided. It’s also your opportunity to consider ways in which to conserve our energy and reduce our dependence on new-renewable energy forms. To help guide you in going green ready for Earth Day this year, we’re highlighting several steps for renewing your commitment to the environment. From the types of plumbing in your home, to simpler things like water bottle usage.

Use Eco-Friendly Plumbing

Eco-friendly plumbing systems are one of the most important elements you’ll need in reducing your water consumption in 2017. The latest low flow toilets and showers are designed to help save hundreds of gallons of wastewater each year.

You can use low flow systems to keep your water use to a minimum while still providing the same level of convenient plumbing performance throughout the home.

Save on Bottled Water with Filtration

Bottled water is one of the most damaging elements of our environment. In addition to the production of plastic for the bottles themselves, there’s the transportation of bottled water to retail outlets and businesses across the country.

This adds significant amounts of greenhouse gases to our atmosphere and contributes to global warming. The use of bottled water also helps sustain an industry that depends upon the extraction of natural resources from the ground for resale at a premium.

Instead, you can simply install the latest home water filtration systems to mitigate your water consumption while accessing clean water in the home.

Use a Tankless Water Heater

To help minimize the amount of hot water used each time you take a bath or shower, why not consider the benefits of a tankless water heater? Tankless systems provide hot water on demand rather than storing large amounts of water in the home.

This minimizes your water waste considerably and can also help eliminate overspending on the water on a month-to-month basis.

Compost Food Waste

Another great way to ensure that you’re committed to the protection of the environment is to compost food waste. The composting process works to minimize the amount of trash in landfills across the country and helps ensure natural nutrients are placed back into the local soil system for the continued sustainability of our local environment.
