According to the EPA, over 380 billion plastic bags are used in the US annually, costing retailers approximately $4 billion. Switching to items such as reusable grocery bags and post-consumer paper bags can reduce the amount of trash heading into landfills by the ton, as well as help the economy. Lets all do our part; for us, for each other, for the earth.

Consider purchasing post-consumer recycled products. For every 2000 lbs. of post-consumer recycled products we buy, we save: 12 trees Over 1000 lbs of solid waste that would go into a landfill Enough energy to supply a home with 2 months worth of electricity 1200 gallons of water And 390 gallons of oil All used to produce new products. Many of these post consumer items include paper products that we use everyday.

WHES Earth Day Tip #2

Nationwide, artificial lighting consumes about 10% of household electricity usage. Use of new lighting technology, such as CFL bulbs, can reduce the amount of energy it takes to light a home by over 50%. That could be a savings of up to $50 per year. Turning off lights and TV’s not in use can save even more.
