Putting on an extra layer of clothing can mean that you take a little longer to turn the heat on, or that you leave the heat on at a lower thermostat temperature. Every tiny bit that you can avoid cranking the heat saves you fuel usage, which isn’t just good for the planet, it’s also good for your pocketbook.
Eating what’s in season instead of supporting fuel-wasting and non-environmentally friendly importations of non-seasonal produce can have a huge impact on the planet. Agriculture is one of the most planet-destroying activities around in its current scale.
Before winter hits, take time in the fall to check your window, door, basement and attic insulation. The more you can keep heat inside of your house and cold outside of your house, the less you’ll need to rely on your heating unit. Check off all of the places your home should be insulated to make sure everything is in check!
Fall is one of the best seasons of the year, but it also can be the start of some non-eco-friendly habits. Take a moment to check yourself before fall is in full swing and make environmentally conscious autumn decisions
