Going Green in 2011

Make it your New Year’s Resolution this year to
go green in your
Hoboken household!

Following are some simple steps you can take to help make an impact on the environment:

Many cities have recycling programs with drop-off dumpsters and centers in convenient locations. Remember that cardboard, paper, plastic bags, glass jars and milk jugs are just a few of the items you can recycle instead of sending them to a landfill.

Since the winter season is upon us be sure your insulation, windows, and seals are in good condition. If you have any cracks or openings around windows and doors your energy consumption will really increase.

Consider using cleaning supplies that are free of harsh chemicals. Currently, there are options for everything from surface cleaners to detergents. If you are creative you can even make your own cleaners. An easy way to create your own cleaner is by mixing together 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of water in a spray bottle. This is a great alternative to clean dirt and soap scum.

Simply turning your heat down just a few degrees can save you cash, and while help the environment. If you can consider putting a sweater on instead of raising the thermostat.
