  • I recycle everything. I hang my clothes outside to dry.I don't use the dishwasher very often we do them by hand.Use . We turn up the thermostat to about 82 summer and I like it warm in the winter so we are about 72, energy bulbs but then lights arent on if we;'re not in the room. That's all I can think of for now I'm sure we do other things

  • i recycle plastic, aluminum and paper, I only use the lights when im in that room and turn them off as I leave, I have energy saving light bulbs, wash clothes on cold cycle. I do splurge on the heat and air conditioning, i gotta have a perfect temperature, so the house is usually at a 72 in winter and about 65 in summer
