It’s the little things that count when you’re striving to live an environmentally friendly life. What may seem like small actions on their own — such as installing a water-saving shower head, putting a timer on your hot water tank or insulating windows — create substantial changes over time.
You can unplug electronics when you’re not using them, switch to compact fluorescents (CFLs) and LEDs for lighting, and install heavy window drapes to block out heat in summer and the chill in winter. All of the little things really do add up to make a big difference.
