10 Ways To Save More & Waste Less

1. Pack Litterless Lunches-- use reusable containers

2. Spend Less Time Scrubbing-- Make a paste from baking soda & water to remove caked on food from pots & pans

3. Power Down--Program your TV to turn off other systems like cable, satellite, DVD, or the VCR at the same time

4. Use Smart Products-- Use palnt based soaps and baking soda which costs up to 50% less than the leading detergents

5. Skip The Dishwasher Drying Cycle-- Let things Air Dry

6. Reduce Waste--Use a biodegradable litter from a renewable source. Combine with baking soda to elimate odors

7. Cove Up--Boil water faster by putting a lid on the pot.

8. Seal It In-- Lock the windows in your house to improve the seal and prevent leaks of hot or cool air

9. Don't Sweat It--Use baking soda as a deodorant

10. Lights Out--Pick one family member to turn off all lights each time you leave home. Rotate the chore weekly.
