Paint your home With latex
Oil-based paints contain solvents that are released into the air and cause pollution. Latex paints are water based and safer.
Stop buying aerosols
Many things come with a propellant. From hair spray to cooking spray, each requires a propellant to work. These propellants release harmful gases. They’re not great for your health and they’re certainly not good for the environment. Use pump sprays instead.
Unplug and turn off
When you’re not using an appliance, unplug it. This includes electronic devices too. And turn off lights in your home when you’re not using them. In fact, try to watch less television and use electronics less. You might decide to designate an afternoon or an entire day as a day to “unplug” and not use any electronics for entertainment. Read a book. Go for a walk. Enjoy a game or time with your family.
