There is a lot we can do around the house, both big and small, to help save the earth.

Social Impacts:  Taking positive environmental actions in our homes sets an example for our family, friends and neighbors and also leaves more energy and water for our family, friends and neighbors both near and far today and in the future.

Economic Impacts:  From an economic perspective many of the steps we can take around the home to help the environment will also result in a cost savings to the consumer.  Any reduction in our water consumption or energy use certainly will reduce our out of pocket costs for the commodity.

Environmental Impacts:  Running our homes requires a lot of energy use and water.  Anything we can do to help reduce those usages has a positive impact on the environment.  Even seemingly small actions can add up to big impacts especially if more and more households take these actions.
