In her 5 Simple Steps to Make Any Home a Green Home post, Maura Judkis notes things that many of us know will improve our carbon footprint:
Eliminate vampire power
Install a low-flow shower head.
Reduce amount of water being flushed by your toilet
Install a gray water system in your bathroom
Replace your conventional thermostat with a programmable one
There are obviously many more things one can do, but bite-sized changes can and will add up to a greater whole. Kudos to Maura for continuing to put the good message out there!
