Be More Sustainable at Home
There are lots of steps you can take to be more sustainable at home. Start with these tips, and then follow the links provided to learn more about other sustainable practices:
Bike, Bus or Walk
Use alternative transportation to save money on gas, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, get a healthy workout and get to know your neighbors, all at the same time.
Purchase organic, local products to support our economy and reduce the impacts of production and transportation. Remember to bring your reusable shopping bags!
Change a Light
Replacing incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent lights can save you up to 15% on your electricity bills.
Eat Less Meat
Studies have shown that consuming meat and dairy products has a similar effect on climate change as driving your car. This doesn’t mean you have to give up meat altogether. Just try having a vegetarian meal a few times a week.
Make Your Home Energy Efficient
Upgrade your home and save both energy and money. EWEB and NW Natural offer a variety of incentives and services to help you improve the energy performance of your home. Learn about your options at the
website or at the
Simplify Your Life
Limit your purchases. Buy second-hand products and appliances. Purchasing out of necessity limits waste and reduces greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the production and transport of goods.
EWEB has made it easy and affordable to switch to a cleaner, renewable energy source.
Use a Low-Flow Showerhead
A low-flow showerhead uses 60% less water and could save you $200 per year.
Utilize Curbside Recycling
Eugene’s recycling rate is over 50%, but there’s always room for improvement!
