Spring into a greener home

Easy eco-friendly ideas to help you spring clean and spring green your home this season.

The great A/C challenge

Hey, they do it in Europe so why can’t we try it too? A spring and summer without air-conditioning—scary as that seems—is not that hard, and can save you up to 50 percent on your electricity bill during these months. Ceiling fans, desk fans and two or more open windows or doors (to create a draft) can also work wonders to keep you sweat-free.
