Spring into a greener home

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

Let it rain

Spring and summer means increased outdoor water use (the lawn, the garden, the pool, the DIY car washes with the kids)—sometimes upwards of 60 percent more than winter levels! Offset this consumption by using a rain barrel. These barrels collect rainwater for you to use for gardening or outdoor watering.
