Home Tip Tuesday: Tips on Green Living this Summer

Image
If you've been thinking of taking steps to lower your environmental impact, summer is the perfect time to go green. Follow these tips to green your family's routine this summer. 

Green Your BBQ
Summer is cookout season. Make your BBQ eco-friendly by using a propane grill rather than charcoal, which is a dirtier fuel. 

Green your barbecues by switching from plastic or Styrofoam plates to compostable or disposable plates. Recycle your beverage containers, or serve iced tea, infused water, or lemonade in reusable cups to lower waste.
