According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, between 5 and 10% of American households have water leaks that waste upwards of 90 gallons a day each – that’s a lot of water! If you have a leak, take it as an opportunity to install a brand new high efficiency faucet that will save both water AND money.
Instead of throwing old household items away, try to find a place where they can be recycled instead. Most cities have centrally located recycling depots that will take anything from old electronics to scraps of tin foil.
Look for carbon credit initiatives to donate money to. You can find projects that work to capture methane gas in the air and convert it into clean energy, or wind and solar farms to invest in.
Bring your own bags to the grocery store, and reuse any plastic shopping bags you may have for garbage can liners, walking your dog, etc. It can take the average plastic bag decades to decompose, and during that time they often end up polluting our cities and oceans.
Have a car free day once a week. Whether you choose to get around by walking, biking, or using your city’s metro or bus service that day, you are doing something good for your health and for the environment.
Do a walk through of your home each week and check your appliances to ensure optimal energy efficiency. Is the temperature inside your fridge cooler than it needs to be? Is the thermostat set too high? Adjusting these settings for greater efficiency can and should add up to cost savings over time.
Absolutely! When you choose Renaissance Power & Gas as your supplier of carbon neutral electricity or natural gas, you are reducing the amount of pollution that is released into our atmosphere, because we will purchase carbon credits on your behalf in order to capture the carbon output generated by the energy we supply to customers.
No rewiring is required. Buying Renaissance Power & Gas electricity requires NO rewiring or special equipment. You will still be connected to the same utility power grid that provides your power, and everything stays exactly the same as it is now.
