Live Green

Want to put more “green” in your life by saving money and reducing waste?

Reduce Global Warming

For example, if every family in the United States replaced one regular light bulb with a compact fluorescent, 90 billion pounds of greenhouse gases would be eliminated. Look here for more steps, big and small, that will help to reduce global warming.
