February 16 :: Wrap it up and warm it up!

Keep your hot water stocked by wrapping your water heater in an insulation blanket. Take it a step further by insulating your pipes. Or, give the water heater a break by switching to cold water in the laundry. Instead of using the dryer, give your clothes an added boost of freshness by line drying them in the sunshine instead of throwing them in the dryer.

Savings:
Wrapping your water heater can save 1,000 pounds of CO2, using the cold setting on the washing machine saves 80% on energy and an estimated $60, and hanging clothes to dry saves 700 pounds of CO2 each year.
