B4UBuy: Insulating Your Home or Small Business
Has the cost of heating put a big hole in your budget? Insulating your home permanently lowers your utility bills. Check out our class covering tips for insulating your attic well and cost effectively; suitable for small businesses too.
Join LCAN at the Highland-Shelby Park Library at 1:00PM Saturday, February 8th for a free, B4UBuy presentation by engineer and LCAN Executive Director Sarah Lynn Cunningham covering tips for replacing your heating system.
Whether you celebrate Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa or them all, take steps to do so with a smaller carbon footprint. Try these top tips:
If you want to decorate with a live tree, then plant it outdoors, take this (entertaining, smart) advice from Yew Dell Garden's Paul Cappiello.
If you buy a cut tree, skip the shiny "icicles" so it can be mulched and composted after the holidays.
If you decorate with lights, choose LEDs and turn them off before you go to bed.
Plan meals using more local ingredients.
Wrap gifts with plain paper neither shiny nor plasticized, so it can be recycled. Better, wrap in reusable fabric, such as a bandana, towel, etc.
If you receive a gift that replaces a current possession, ensure that someone else can use it.
Using your credit or debit card
(This set-up is clunky, but the best we could do with the software for now.)
