One way to be environmentally friendly is to only run the dishwasher when it is completely full. Try to refrain from putting small amounts in and running the dishwasher. It will likely surprise you how much you can actually put into your dishwasher when you load it properly. Carefully align your dishes so that you can place as many dishes into it as possible.
Replace your tank-style water heater with a green, tankless model. Tankless water heaters still require power to heat the water, but they heat only the water that you want to use, rather than heating a tank of water that you’re not always using. You can get a tankless water heater to heat your entire home’s water supply or you can get a smaller one that heats only water that comes out of a particular faucet.
Dress more warmly to be green and reduce energy costs. Wearing a sweater can make you feel two to four degrees warmer, depending on the thickness of the sweater. The more layers you wear at home, the less energy you will need to use heating your house.
