Here are 4 simple tips for making your home more environmentally friendly this Earth Day.

Change a Light Bulb

Replacing burnt out light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) is a fast, easy way to save energy this Earth Day.

Unplug Stuff You’re Not Using

Many household electronics like TVs, printers, cell phone chargers, and printers draw power even when they’re not in use.

Recycle Unused Electronics

Got any old TVs, stereos, cell phones, or computers lying around? Recycle them so the chemicals and heavy metals don’t end up in the ground.

Fix That Leaky Faucet

A dripping faucet can waste up to 74 gallons of water per day. Fix it and cut down on the amount of water your household consumes.
