The green movement is catching on and catching well! Singles, couples, and families are increasingly being aware of the importance of maintaining an eco-friendly home for themselves. What makes for an eco-friendly house? Let’s just say that it is the people in the house that make it an eco-friendly place because of their commitment to adopting the right lifestyle habits, such as reusing, recycling and re-purposing as well as in effective and efficient use of resources including energy. Here are a few tips that can make your house eco-friendly, too. Keep in mind that it is your role and responsibility to adopt these lifestyle habits not only for Mother Earth but for present and future generations as well. #1 Turn Off the Lights Did you know that as much as 20% of your home’s energy consumption come from light bulbs? So, when you turn off the lights in empty rooms or turn off unnecessary lights even in a room with people, then you can save on energy costs and make your home an eco-friendly place. #2 Replace Incandescent Lights Did you also know that approximately 90% of the power used by incandescent light bulbs is wasted as heat? So, when incandescent light bulbs are replaced by more energy-efficient lights, such as GU10 LED bulbs, substantial savings in energy consumption can be enjoyed. #3 Adopt the Three Rs Reduce, recycle, and reuse - these are the three Rs of resource conservation that advocates of the green movement encourage households to adopt as part of their daily lives. These principles can be adopted into practice in so many ways including but not limited to: • Reducing your consumption of goods since the best waste management system is the avoidance of its production. Make careful purchasing decisions that involve less purchases, such as buying products in bulk, avoiding over-packaged and disposable goods, and buying durable goods. • Reusing makes good social, financial and environmental sense although it will take a certain measure of creativity. For example, harvesting and reusing rainwater for household use (i.e., not for drinking) means using a natural resource while also saving on the water bill. Other examples include reusing products in different ways, selling old yet still usable items, and reusing products for similar purposes. • Recycling means using old materials to make new things. These can include recycling scrap materials to re-purpose them, buying recycled products, and selling old materials to recycling centers. More in details pls visit us by

Being an environmentalist, I am an avid recycler, to my wife's displeasure. I live in a mobile home and was told on freezing cold nights, it's a good idea to let the water drip on the furthest faucet from your water heater to keep your pipes from freezing. I did this but didn't want to waste water. So I cut the bottom off of a two liter Coke bottle as a funnel and collected the water in a big pickle bucket that I bought from a Firehouse Subs restaurant. I use the dripping water to water my plants and to flush the toilet.

Thanks for your comment flpooblum, i am so happy to see what you have done for giving an environmentalist's deed :) it's somewhat like a scientific experiment just happened in our daily lives while it has its meaning larger than the experiment itself.
