Green Friday- Simple ways to be GREENER one week at a time!!!

Since I have had kids I have to say I care A LOT more about the future then I did when I was younger!  Outside of my mommy/blogging world I have the privilege to work for a very GREEN company and I have learned so much thanks to them!

Paying it forward every week I am going to share some simple green tips that each of us can do to make the world a better place AND also save you some money in the long run!

Green around the home:

 When searching for your next computer search for a LCD flat screen monitor rather then a traditional CRT-  Why you may ask?  They use less energy!  Remember to recycle your old monitor!

Green around the office: 

Do you have plants in your home or office?  If the answer is no then get to shopping this weekend.  Did you know that plants can greatly increase the quality of indoor air; which means healthier environment for all!  Don't have money for new plants?  Why not trim off a part of a friends plant or family members existing one. You can add it to a glass of water and watch it sprout overtime.  Once it has sprouted enough you can then transport to dirt!

Green Everyday Living:

Almost everyone has a cell phone and we spend a lot of time talking, texting and playing games.  Why not make you time on your cell beneficial for all.  There is software out there for your cell phones that can help you track and reduce your carbon footprint.  Now isn't that rewarding?  Check out some of these apps here!

What do you do to make your world a little bit greener?

Come back next week for some more tips!
