It's a new year, a new day, and a new opportunity to improve your lifestyle by going green. The "go green movement" has been gaining publicity and popularity throughout these past few years, but it's not too late to become involved. Since knowledge is power, I believe that the more information that people have about green alternatives, the easier it will be to make the necessary changes.
My first eco-friendly suggestion is to switch from standard light bulbs in your home to energy saving CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs) which last longer and waste a lot less enegy. In fact, these bulbs use up to 75% less energy than standard bulbs, and they last up to 10 times longer! CFLs are definitely a smart investment because they save you so much money in the long run. Not to mention, they are better for the environment because they are so energy efficient.
