We've compiled these lists of easy things you can do to help the environment:
Adjust Your Refrigerator and Water Heater
Water heating is the second largest energy expense in your home, typically accounting for about 18% of your utility bill. The Department of Energy recommends setting the thermostat on your water heater to 120°F to get comfortable hot water and reduce energy expenditure.
Try composting as a way to use your kitchen and yard waste to benefit your garden. Not sure how to get started? Check out these composting resources at the library.
Reduce Plastic Waste
The library has started recycling newspaper bags. You can do the same by bringing yours to the Bag2Bag recycling bin at Sunset or another participating store. They also accept dry cleaning bags and other plastic bags and some shrink wraps. See the Bag2Bag site for more information on what they recycle.
