Top ways to go Green! TURN OFF THE LIGHTS! turning off lights helps to lower the need and use of fossil fuels
and can help protect the inner layers of our atmosphere.
The burning of fossil fuels put dangerous gases into our
atmosphere and damages our health when carbons go up in the air Change the Bulb Installing a compact fluorescent bulb (CFL) is the quickest, easiest way to save energy -- and money. Unlike incandescents, CFLs convert most of the energy they use into light rather than heat.

Good for You: They consume about 75 percent less electricity and last up to 10 times longer (10,000 hours as opposed to 1,500). Replace one 75-watt incandescent bulb with a 25-watt CFL and save up to 83 over the life of the bulb.
Unplug the glow! Anything that has an LED (light emitting diode) that glows even after you turn it off continues to draw power (that you pay for). Your TV, cell phone charger, and printer are likely culprits. Unplug the offenders from wall sockets and plug them into power strips instead. When you leave a room, flip the strip switch to cut the flow of electricity.

Good for You: Unplug appliances and electronics that glow and you could save 200 a year.
by: Justin McCrory ! for the going green website ! Recycle your electronics Americans tossed out a whopping 5.5 billion pounds of electronics -- TVs, stereos, cell phones, and computers -- in 2005, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The result? Millions of pounds of chemicals and heavy metals ended up in the ground even though it's easier than ever to recycle electronics. The Consumer Electronics Association created mygreenelectronics.org to help people find a recycling resource in their area. The site also provides a list of electronics, from laptops to baby monitors, that are easier on the environment and your energy bill.

Good for You: The average American household has three cell phones stashed in a drawer. Sell unused cell phones to greenphone.com. You'll receive about 35, and the phones will be refurbished and resold. If 1 million people recycled one cathode-ray tube TV this year, we'd keep 4 million pounds of lead out of the ground.

recycle! recycling is a key factor in the popular term "reuce, re-use, recyle"
because recycling helps to reduce landfill waste and that helps to
better our soil and waste less land. Recycling re-uses paper to make
paper products from recyled paper. They make things like more paper,
newspapers, pencils and many other paper things. This helps by cutting
down on the cutting down of trees in our wildlife. Which in term saves
many animals from abandoning their homes and eventually dieing off.
Not to mention the beauty being taken away well and oxygen. use a bike! Get a bike! Cycle instead of driving. This means you are saving money on fuel, and getting some nice exercise as well. This means that you will pollute a lot less, and you will be one of the pioneers in alternative transportation. You can equip your bike with lights and wear appropriate gear and your bike will be a safe means of transportation too. Many cities are starting to add bike lanes and bike rental spots to try and encourage people to switch to cycling. Forward my website!!!!!! thank you for taking the time to watch my presentation
