HSU Green's Quick Tips Here are a few quick tips to help you live a little greener today: Turn off the water while you're brushing your teeth. Shop locally. When your local economy does well, everyone is happy. Drive less, Human Power more. Walk, ride your bike, cruise around on your Heelys; just leave the car behind. Turn off the lights/appliances when you aren't using them. Pack your lunch. This cuts down on waste and cuts down on your fast food intake. Who doesn't like saving money and eating more healthily? Convert to only using reusable shopping bags at the store. Recycle. A lot of good can come from choosing to put your waste in a different bin. Use a reusable water bottle, such as a Nalgene or CamelBak, instead of one-use plastic water bottles to reduce plastic waste. Use eco-friendly light bulbs (they'll pay for themselves). Buy used clothing and Upcycle into a one-of-a-kind fashion creation. Rid yourself of a disposable lifestyle and buy stuff that lasts.
