What are your plans to celebrate today? What? You don’t have any? That’s ok! If you are already living in Beazer home, or planning to buy one, you are already doing your part to be energy efficient.
In fact, because we build 100% of our homes to be ENERGY STAR® certified, we have saved the environment 180,034,423 pounds of CO2 since 1998. That’s a lot of emissions saved just from living in an energy efficient new home, as opposed to an older home. It’s also a lot of monetary savings in our homeowner’s wallets!
In addition to just simply living in one of our homes, there are several other simple ways that you can celebrate Earth Day and do your part. Check them out!
- Switch out an incandescent bulb for a CFL. This could save you $6 per year, or $40 over the lifetime of the bulb. Now multiply that by every bulb in your home. Carry the 2, divide by…well, you get the point. A little bit here, a little bit there…it adds up!
- Go thrifting. Instead of going to buy a new dress or serving platter for your house from the department store, hit up your local second-hand shop to reduce and reuse.
- Pick up a piece of litter. Walking around your office parking lot or neighborhood tonight or later this week? Pick up that trash you see. We all come across it. Just pick it up and pocket it until you return home where you can properly throw it out.
That’s it. Three small things you could do to celebrate Earth Day, other than living in an ENERGY STAR certified home, that is!
