10 best tips for green living

Make it rain. Install a high-efficiency showerhead (look for the WaterSense label) and cut your family’s water use by 2,900 gallons a year. (M)eat less. Put meat on the menu just a couple of times a week; livestock is a high contributor of greenhouse gases. Simmer down. Bring your pasta or rice to a boil, then put a lid on the pot and turn off the stove. Your food will cook just as well, says Katie Heyhoe, author of Cooking Green: Reducing Your Carbon Footprint in the Kitchen. Clean green. Look to your kitchen cabinet for natural cleaning products, such as baking soda, white distilled vinegar and essential oils. Ride slow. Drive the speed limit, avoid rapid acceleration and brake less (except when it counts!) to increase your car’s fuel efficiency.
