In doing my part, I will pass on some links, with tons of helpful hints to educate you on becoming a bit more Green. I’ve seen significant savings by doing simple things such as changing my lightbulbs to all Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs ), which allow you to save around $30 in electricity per bulb over its lifetime.
