5 Great Ways to Go Green

Want to go green while practicing social distancing? Here are a few ideas to consider:

• Maximize your time at home by planting a garden. Not only will the plants you grow help to reduce carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere, but you’ll also be creating a healthy habitat for birds, insects and other small critters. Plus, if you plant vegetables, you can reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of food you need to purchase that was shipped long distances.

• Your home theater is likely more important to you these days then ever before, making it a good place to start when making eco-friendly home upgrades. Consider a mercury-free projector with a hybrid laser and LED light source, which removes the need for hazardous bulbs. With a long bulb life of 20,000 hours, selecting a Casio’s LampFree projector is one upgrade with a lasting impact.

• You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money to substantially improve your home’s energy efficiency. Take an afternoon to swap out the incandescent bulbs in all your light fixtures and replace them with LEDs or another energy-efficient alternative.

• Get outdoors and enjoy nature using wearable tech like the PRT-B50 Pro Trek Watch, which can help steer you through a solitary hike. With Quad Sensor technology, you will know the direction, weather, temperature and altitude at the touch of a button. In addition, an accelerometer keeps track of your steps and calories burned. The Bluetooth-enabled watch connects to an app that will also record your location into memory so you can find your way back.

• Learn more about environmental causes and get involved remotely. Many organizations host online petitions, which are shared directly with policymakers. This is a great way to have your voice heard on issues that are important to you.

With a bit of creativity, you can show the planet some love in a socially-responsible way.
