As stated, going green is one of the more important topics being discussed on a day-to-day basis. It’s a hard thing to nail down, since the biggest impacts require the most change. Not everyone can make these overhauling life changes, but finding out ways to increase your green sustainability without changing to much of your life routine can, and will, have a serious impact, especially if more and more people started to make these small changes. That is why we like to throw out some information about going green to further enhance our communities’ ability to contribute to the world at large going green.
Perhaps on of the simplest thing one can do to become greener has to do with cars. Now, we aren’t going to say to get rid of your car altogether, although that would have a large impact. Instead, checking your tires’ air pressure will have a big impact on the amount of gas you use. By having tires that are always up to snuff on the pressure front, less gas will be used, meaning less carbon emissions. If everyone in the world practiced this method, up to 4 billion gallons of gas would be saved per year.
Another simple thing that can be done is saving the plastic bags you get at stores. We are seeing more and more stores advertise reusable bags, but sometimes spending the extra money when bags are given for free does not make sense—rather than through those free plastic bags out, save them. They are easy to store and can be used to package groceries or anything else you buy at the store. This will reinforce the philosophy behind reusable bags, but will not cost a single dime.
Figuring out the small things that can be done will greatly increase your ability to go green. By doing a large amount of smaller things, you will be able to have a large impact without having to make many of the lifestyle changes required to be completely green.
