The Green Register Shows YOU the Baby Steps of Going Green!

The Green Register Shows YOU the Baby Steps of Going Green!

 

Readers, we have been speaking over the last month about a tremendous online website, newspaper, and all-round information provider called, The Green Register, and the response has been outstanding.

 

There are also issues, however, that people have come across and asked about regarding the actual initiative of “going green.”  This is a true ‘movement,’ for lack of a better term, that is allowing all people in the nation and the world to throw their force behind making the land, air, nature, and every facet of the environment better for ourselves and the next generation.

 

This week, we are going to delve into the true concept of what it means to go green, and how organizations, sites, magazines and – above all – The Green Register is making it possible for each and every one of us to join in and do our fair share to help our environment, our daily lives, and our children‘s future.

 

Going green doesn’t begin with you becoming a quote-unquote Tree Hugger.  All the information and statistics do not have to be known and recorded in your brain for you to begin to change your daily life and save the environment.  In fact, you will be surprised to learn that going green can simply begin with one step – like throwing an aluminum can into a bucket instead of the garbage pail.  It may seem like nothing but, trust me, it all adds up.

 

Going green does not have to be a difficult premise that adds more stress to an already stress-packed life; therefore, we are going to go over very simple ways to begin the process.  And this information is available because of the amazing work that The Green Register is doing on a daily basis worldwide.

 

Educational, innovative, and entertaining are not usually adjectives that go together, but The Green Register has made them a true trilogy with their online magazine, by being a one-stop-source for information, data, updates, and fun that allow all individuals and corporations to bring about the changes that are necessary.

 

Terms such as, eco-friendly and environmentally-friendly are now used for tons of products, services, construction, home design, foods, politics – everything is covered by The Green Register.  And the wealth of talent and skill that these contributors own makes The Green Register a magazine that is a “must-read” for everyone.

 

Making small changes to go green is essentially the best way to start any program that you take on, seeing as that if you try to make monumental changes all at once, things will get ‘old’ fast and you will turn back to your original ways.

Take your everyday life.  You go pick up groceries.  Well…if you take two minutes to grab a couple of canvas totes that you have at home, with your car keys, before taking off – you JUST went green! No, there are many of us who are not going to run out to the driveway and jump in our electric cars to go to the store, but by not carting home a bunch of groceries in plastic bags, you can own the pride in knowing that you did your part that day for the environment.

 

Can we someday all afford to buy electric, or more green vehicles?  Perhaps.  But even by driving our old, regular ones and not sitting in drive-thrus or leaving them running constantly – again, we’ve gone green.  We turn off the running water while we brush our teeth.  We try to be energy-efficient when using the dishwasher; loading it up all the way before turning it on.  We invest in that safer electric lawn mower and get rid of the gas. We place another garbage can in the corner of the kitchen for recyclables.  And, maybe we ride the bicycle with the kids and leave the car in the garage on a Saturday. You see?  All of these are simple and offer many other benefits besides going green.  This is a gradual process but, as we all know, ALL good things take time.

 

Here are ten small ways that you can join the team and go green – a great way to start!

* Set your thermostat just a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs.

 

* Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL’s) when your other ones burn out.

 

* Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Or, as all computer lovers know, simply use a power strip that can sense when items plugged in are not being used – they will ultimately cut the energy use.

 

* A big thing in my house is washing clothes in cold water instead of hot.  You will not believe that almost eighty-five percent of the energy your washing machine uses is simply to heat the water.

 

* Clotheslines.  Everyone knows this ‘oldie-but-goodie.’  Save simply by going out in that beautiful day and allowing your clothes the fresh air (they actually smell way better than those dryer sheets we all buy).

 

* This one is hard (I know, I have a teenage girl in the house).  But try to take shorter showers to reduce water usage.  This will also help the heating bill!

 

* Gardeners are big with this one!  Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden.  If you’re living in New Mexico, plant those beautiful native flowers that need hardly any water for them to grow!  Look around, no matter where you live there are native plants that are truly stunning and would make a gorgeous garden

 

* With this one…God bless cities and small towns.  Here, you can walk or bike to work – you keep in shape AND save gas.  If you need to commute – take public transportation

 

* And the world of food.  If you are a carnivore and love your meat, simply think about serving just one meal a week with no meat.  Helps your health, pocketbook, and the environment

 

* When you can, buy from local farmers and keep your money invested in the local economy.  These men and women have locally-raised meat, eggs, dairy products – everything!

 

* If you are a water lover, use a water filter to purify tap water at home and save on the bottled water.  This is actually a way to go green twice!  You save on the containers, and water is saved for the environment
* Everybody loves ‘tag-sale’ Saturdays, so check them out; or thrift stores and garage sales for furniture and appliances.  You have no idea the deals you can get and the really amazing stuff you can find in someone else’s closet.  This way, you also keep electronics out of the garbage.  Cell phones, old computers – sell and recycle them, electronics are filling up landfills and it’s completely unnecessary.

 

The Green Register is here to make sure, on a daily basis, that you and I are provided with easy tips, information, he latest news, as well as a monumental amount of products, companies, and services that will allow you and your family to begin changing the world.

 

The Green Register ALSO looks out for you, by providing lists of information on home designers, lists of names and companies that help recycle, and can help you build your dream home – a huge way to go green when you’re ready.

 

By following the green trends, you can also increase your business and bring in more money, and the The Green Register is the vehicle that can show you how!

 

The Green Register is NOW!  It is an online magazine that focuses on the issues of today and the help we all need to make our days cleaner, brighter, and more livable.  We have been given a tremendous gift – life.  And what we do with that gift is our own decision.  But one thing that does not need to be a tough or stressful decision is going green!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody!
