What does going green mean? Actually it is rather simple. People are expected to know all about doing the responsible thing and acting a certain way but at the end of the day we surprisingly notice that a lot of us have no idea what are the easiest ways to have a green attitude towards the environment.
Remember to Recycle
There is no better time to recycle than during the hot summer days. We tend to supply our home with a lot of greens and a lot of tin cans filled with beer and soda, not to mention that water in bottles or larger containers is something we buy every day.
Remember to separate the garbage and put the metal aside. Most soda and beer cans are made of aluminum and you would be surprised how much metal can you save by simply storing it separately. Not to mention that recycling aluminum gets you cash.
If you are lucky enough to have a yard and a garden make sure you compost the veggies and fruit residue for some quality organic fertilizer. It may not smell beautifully but the hot summer makes the whole process easier and faster.
