We gave you a few tips that can help you go green this winter in a previous post, so be sure to catch up on that information if you haven’t yet read it. In today’s blog post, we’ll continue to provide you with easy and affordable ways for you to go green this winter. When you’ve reached the end of this post, be sure to visit the Green Tidings catalog to order natural skin care products online. Whether you’re shopping for natural deodorant, body oils, or a gift card for your friends and family, we’ve made it easy to find something for everyone on your list this year.\nWinterize Your Home\nWinterizing your home is one of the easiest ways to ensure that you’re making the most of the energy you consume. No matter where you’re located, you should be in the habit of checking your doors and windows for drafts, and sealing them if you discover any cracks or holes. It’s quite common for small cracks to develop over time, and even a small leak can add up as the year goes on. Just like a leaky faucet can lead to a massive amount of water waste over the course of a year, energy loss due to ineffective seals can increase your utility bills and your home’s environmental footprint.\nReverse Your Ceiling Fans \n\nThis tip sounds strange at first, but it does work! Hot air rises, which means that much of the heat your home produces will make its way to the upper levels of your home. Switching the direction of your fans as the temperatures drop is a great way to redistribute warm air throughout your home and decrease your reliance on your heater. This generally means that the blades will be spinning clockwise instead of counterclockwise, but the fans in your home may be set up differently.\nShop Green\nEnvironmentally conscious shopping is becoming more and more important every year, and many manufacturers are making it known that they source their materials and packaging in sustainable ways. Whenever you’re out and about, look for products that have stickers or information about the company’s practices, and choose to purchase products that align with your values. We’ve made it easy to buy natural skin care products online, but for everything else, check the packaging or do your research in advance. You’ll be surprised to find that some of the most popular brands on the market are now offering eco-friendly alternatives to some of their most popular products, and sometimes, you just have to look closely to find them.\nKeep Your Momentum Going\nAt Green Tidings, we believe that environmental sustainability should be a year-round commitment. Whether you’ve decided to switch to natural deodorant or replace all of your skin care products with all-natural alternatives, we hope that your commitment will continue into 2019 and beyond. The global environment needs your help, and even small lifestyle changes made by a large number of individuals can have a substantial impact.We hope that this series will help you protect the planet and promote your well-being as the year comes to an end.
