Leave a comment with your own earth-friendly tip for a chance to win a BLANCO SOLON Compost System. One winner will be drawn on Earth Day – 4/22/12.
Here’s an Earth Day tip from BLANCO Design Journal member Leslie Clagett, http://kbculture.blogspot.com, to help you save money and save the planet.
1) Filter your own tap water rather than buying bottled H2O. The choices are many: a faucet with an integral/in-line filter, a spigot-mounted filter, even a simple water pitcher with a filter insert.
2) Avoid redundant, landfill-bound technology. If you already own a personal audio device or a tablet or laptop computer, do you really need an appliance that offers these features?
3) Consider a motion-activated sensor that automatically turns off the lights when no one’s in the kitchen [and, of course, turns them on when somebody enters the room]. This can be of particular benefit to households w/ teenagers who are prone to raiding the refrigerator at night.
