Ways to Save the Planet In the Yard
If you have a yard and/or garden, there are plenty of ways that you can reduce waste and pollution, and re-use stuff that you may have thought was just garbage. There are 5 eco-friendly choices you can make in this category.
|Artificial fertlizers contain many chemicals that aren't good for you OR the environment, and they can contribute to the pollution of the water table. You'll see (and taste!) the difference in your fruits and veggies!|
|You benefit either directly or when local taxes are kept lower by reduced disposal costs.|
|Trees and gardens make your yard beautiful, but they also help clean the air and reduce greenhouse gasses.|
|Plant short, dense shrubs close to your home's foundation to help insulate your home against cold, and use a light-colored roof to reduce heat absorption. You'll be saving an estimated 13 lbs of CO2 per tree!|
