Used cooking oil can be dangerous to the environment. If you choose to simply dispose of it, the cooking oil should be placed in sealed, non-recyclable containers and discarded with the rest of your garbage. However, there is another option: cooking oil can be reused and recycled, which ultimately helps save the environment.

Living green is so much easier than it’s advertised. You don’t need to buy all the fancy energy-saving gadgets or Eco-friendly appliances. It’s more economical and green to just use what you’ve got in the first place. You can forget about all those green beauty products and organic foods, too. The only place you need to focus your energy is on, well, your energy.
In deregulated markets, you have the power to choose your energy supplier, thus allowing you to choose a specific plan from that supplier, as well. Save money when you choose the supplier with the lowest rates. But that’s not the only way to save. Lucky for you, the market is saturated with green energy packages as well as more traditional plans. You can choose to get your energy from a supplier that offers energy from renewable resources, or you can choose to purchase green energy to offset what you use from non-renewable resources. Selecting a green energy plan for your home or business is probably the easiest way to adopt a green lifestyle and make a real impact with just one phone call.
Allow me to explain: the first step is finding out what’s available in your city. If you’re from Southeast Texas, for example, you can compare electricity rates in Houston right from your computer. Then, you call the retail electric provider of your choice once you’ve found a green plan that matches your needs. And guess what? That’s it. You’ll get your electric supply switched over as soon as possible – and there’s no added effort on your end. Take advantage of a deregulated market where energy suppliers compete for your business. Save money and help protect the planet when you shop for a green energy plan in a deregulated market.
See? Green living really isn’t all that hard when you know where to look. Get started with your search, and find your green energy plan today.

Modern society has adopted a mentality that immediately consigns everything to the garbage heap that needs repair. The trees necessary to build new furniture are a renewable resource, but they must be planted, cultivated and grown for several decades before harvesting. As this suggests, natural resources must be conserved and used judiciously even when they are renewable. Therefore, the societal status quo, that is, the “throw away” mentality, is an attitude that can be considered tragic when the item to be scrapped is a piece wood furniture that cleaning, repairing, and refinishing could restore to Read the rest of this entry…

When de-cluttering around the home, one thing many people forget about is that someone else might be very interested in the items that they are throwing away. Many items end up in the land fill that could be repurposed and reused by others. Some of the most popular items to end up on the curb are often pieces of furniture. These items can be sanded and refinished, or reupholstered in order to give the items a fresh look that might fit into Read the rest of this entry…

According to the USEPA, each individual in the United States produces 4.3 lbs of trash per day. Recycling can significantly reduce that amount of trash, effectively reducing the amount of trash that ends up in the landfill. This has a two-fold advantage; for one it eliminates the need for more landfills and the associated greenhouse gases. It also reduces the burden on nature to eliminate the waste.
Start by setting up your household to make recycling easier. This requires the purchase of special containers.Never heard of this before? Get up to speed
