  1. Invest in a reusable water bottle….saves so many plastic bottles, and space in your kitchen for the palletes of water bottles.

  2. Reduce your paper billing – whenever you get the chance to pay bills online- do so!

  3. Bring your lunch to work and use washable/reuseable containers to cut down on wasteful disposable packaging!!!
