Use less electricity:

Turn off the lights, TV, video games and other electrical appliances when you leave the room.

2. Conserve Water!

Turn the faucet off while brushing your teeth to help conserve water every day.

When you help wash the car, use a nozzle so the water doesn’t keep running.

3. Remember the 3 Rs!

Register online with the Direct Marketing Association to receive less unwanted junk mail for your family.


Store food (leftover pizza — yum!) in re-usable containers. Did you know you can wash and reuse most plastic zipper bags?


Find out how your city or township handles recycling. Recycle everything you can — newspapers, old school papers, cans, glass, plastics, etc.
