Use an energy provider that uses clean energy, like Green Mountain. It’s super easy to enroll and you will be on the exact same energy grid you were on before. I use it and my bills are actually quite a bit less now with no decrease in service. They have no idea my blog exists and they definitely aren’t paying me to say that. Check it out here.
If you’re lucky enough to have a house, you can install Tesla’s Powerwall and charge your home for free, courtesy of our friend the sun.
Use a biodegradable, chemical-free, dye-free, fragrance-free detergent (I love Go by Greenshield Organic – link to it below the text in this post) and wash in cold water as much as you can. Try not to wash until you have a full load’s worth of clothes to save energy. Simple stuff but it matters. I use pureWash which uses oxygen to clean laundry so I can skip hot water and detergent.
Also, ditch the fabric softener and dryer sheets. You can substitute vinegar for fabric softener and, for freshly scented clothes, just put a few drops of your favorite essential oil on a bit of fabric and throw it in the dryer with your clothes. Gorgeous!
