Go Green – It’s a no-brainer investment!

You’ve probably spent plenty of time thinking about how to invest your money, but how often have you considered investing in the environment? Global warming is a pressing issue, especially in the U.S. Although our country makes up only 4.5% of the world population, we account for over 20% of the planet’s carbon emissions! The good new is every individual has the power to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. By making small lifestyle changes today, we ultimately invest in a greener tomorrow. So treat the earth like the asset it is, and start taking action!

At home:

  • Install a programmable thermostat so that the temperature automatically lowers at night while you are away.
  • Replace outdated appliances with energy-efficient models; look for appliances with an Energy Star label.
  • Use the microwave instead of the oven or stove – it uses much less energy.
  • Use cold water when washing your laundry. And while you’re at, let your clothes air-dry.
  • Cut down on paper mail by signing up for e-statements.
  • Ditch the paper and plastic and shop with reusable cloth bags instead.
  • Change the air filters in your heating and cooling systems regularly.

With your car:

  • Carpool, rideshare or utilize public transportation.
  • Bike or walk to nearby places.
  • Invest in a hybrid vehicle and use 75% less gas than a traditional vehicle.
  • Accelerate and drive slower to reduce fuel consumption and cost.
  • Keep your vehicle well serviced to maintain an efficient engine.

At work:

  • Recycle ink cartridges, computers and other office appliances.
  • Print documents double-sided and recycle all paper waste.
  • Bring a bag lunch and store your food in reusable containers.
  • Turn off and unplug your computer every day.
