100 Ways to Save the Environment

by Tim Fulton on September 9, 2008

One of my friends sent this page to me the other day, and I thought it was worth sharing. Sure, it’s kind of a big umbrella and some of it is filler (got to make the list a round 100), but it’s still fun. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Unplug seldom used appliances.
  2. Use a microwave when- ever you can instead of a conventional oven or stove.
  3. Wash clothes with warm or cold water instead of hot.
  4. Reverse your indoor ceiling fans for summer and winter operations as recommended.

You might actually learn a few things, like #74 with me.

  1. Replace old toilets with new ones that use a lot less water.
  2. Turn off washing machine’s water supply to prevent leaks.

Most of them are sort of common sense, but even with the things regarding leaks, a recent flood in my house due to a broken refridgerator water supply line has made me reaffirm my commitment to regular maintenance. Enjoy!
