Going green can seem like a really daunting (maybe life altering!) adjustment but truth be told, you can start anywhere with even the simplest baby steps. Choose the phrase that most suits you and start there!
"I need some direction!": Try out a class or a membership to the Missoula Urban Demonstration Project (MUD). It's an organization that helps Missoulians become greener and more self-sufficient. Visit MUDProject.org.
"I'm willing to invest in my home.": SBS Solar is a solar electric systems integrator. With the installation of solar panels on your home, you can save on your energy bill and help the planet. Visit SBSLink.com.
"I can reuse something!": Reusing plastic bags or using canvas or cloth bags are a great way to cut down on how much plastic ends up in our landfills. Designate a drawer or cabinet for your reusable bags and keep some in your car for those trips to the grocery store or farmers market.
"I buy plastic water bottles.": Investing in a reusable canister or water bottle and refilling the same bottle throughout the day is a huge way to live a greener lifestyle with just one purchase. Your water will stay colder longer and you don't have to worry about having any waste!
"My car is dead!" Did you know that you can recycle your vehicle? Seriously!
