Easy Ways to Recycle

When you think of recycling do you sigh and think that you just don't have the time or energy to do it?

Recycling is not just saving up your empty containers for collection, for example, I have a terrible habit of leaving lights on when I leave a room.  I seem to be someone who, when doing any kind of work, whether it's writing or stripping wallpaper, I need a lot of light around to do it. 

There are many ways to conserve and recycle as the video below shows :-)

The first way I found to conserve energy and count myself in as a "recycler" was to turn off lights as I left a room.  Sounds easy, right?  Well, that's because it is easy.  The only thing I had to do was remind myself that I was no longer going to waste energy by leaving lights on in a room that no one was occupying

Another way is that I changed my light bulbs.  Yup, that simple act of replacing a burned-out bulb with one of the new, energy saving kind has really been a big help.  The newer bulbs use up to 75% less energy when lighting a room and they are supposed to last 10 times longer (debatable).  How can you beat that?  And there wasn't any effort on my part; all I did was replace the bulb with the new and improved bulb and have made quite the impact on my electric bill.

There are easy ways to stay on track with recycling, and you don't have to look very far to find them, maybe that car is the way of the future.......

More Networking questions coming soon :-)
