Weekly Green Tips

Turn off Lights, Electronics, & Small Appliances

Green Team Tip #1

Turn off lights, electronics, and small appliances when not in use. Unplug chargers and things with red or green ‘standby lights’. A monitor that’s on for 3 hours and in standby mode for 21 hours uses about 40% of its total energy in standby mode!

Reduce Meat Consumption

Green Team Tip #2

Reduce your consumption of meat, as meat production requires a lot of water, food, energy, medicines, and other resources. And raising animals for slaughter produces significant amounts of greenhouse gases. Drawdown Georgia has said a Plant-Forward Diet is a high-impact solution to reduce emissions associated with meat production.

Conserve Water

Green Team Tip #3

Turn off the tap when brushing teeth, washing dishes & hands. Set a 6-10 minute timer for your showers- Get Clean and Get Out!
