By: Mrs. Lightner’s AP Environmental Class

 

  • Eat lower on the food chain this week… meatless Monday!
  • Open windows and allow a breeze in instead of turning on the AC.
  • Upcycle before you recycle
  • Carpool
  • Stop Junk Mail
  • Use Re-useable water bottles
  • Utilize your ceiling fans. It is more cost and energy effective
  • Plant a tree
  • Run only full loads (washer, dryer, dishwasher)
  • Close up shop and spend the summer outside, instead of on your phones!
  • Start a compost pile or bin!
  • Use your computer for notes, instead of paper.
  • Walk or bike to close places.
  • Make sure you get a recycling bin in your classroom.
  • Be responsible in watering your lawns. Avoid watering at the hottest times of the day, you lose more water to evaporation.
  • Mind the fertilizer ordinances over the summer.
  • Use commercial car washes instead of washing your own car.
  • Stop brown bagging lunches and use reusable bags.
  • Visit a farmer’s market this weekend, and buy more locally grown vegetables!
  • Invest in a good reusable water bottle or cup in place of using plastic water bottles.
  • Start a small garden with your family.
