Green Tips

Green Tip #48
Continue Greening Yourself

As this year comes to an end and a new year begins, continue greening yourself.

Get more informed about environmental issues so you can make the best eco-friendly decisions for you and your family. Surf the web, read a good book or watch a movie to arm yourself with ideas and knowledge.

Use the power of the ballot box to send a clear message to elected officials about your environmental concerns. Browse the environmental record of potential candidates and be sure to let them know what you think.

Get involved in the environmental issues that affect your community. Send your still usable clothing and household items to local resale shops, take advantage of curbside recycling opportunities and take the rest of your recyclable items to the recycling center once a month, compost the leaves in your yard, and participate in community clean up days.

Become a member of your favorite environmental organization, such as the Macon County Conservation Foundation and support their efforts.

Give a little back to the environment by donating time or money to protect the environment. Improve Macon County natural areas by calling the Macon County Conservation District and volunteering.
