As The World Turns’ Jon Prescott Gives Green Living Advice!
Just in case you missed the memo the first time around, As The World Turns‘ Jon Prescott (Mike) has a very different outlook on life than most people. The adventurous actor climbs mountains, lives a green lifestyle – just like his on-screen character Mike – and even participated in a polar bear swim in the Arctic Ocean!
Well, Jon isn’t stopping there, he has a new, short video out that could help you start living a green lifestyle, too! Click here to watch Jon’s tips.
In Oakdale, Mike Kasnoff is heading construction on a green living project being built on part of the Snyder farm. Emma, who is ready to start taking things a little bit easier, made the tough decision to sell off part of her family’s land in the spring. Mike and Paul fought over who would head the project and Meg came up with the perfect solution: Paul could fund the green project and Mike could manage it.
Since then, we’ve heard quite a bit about green living options but haven’t had a lot of practical advice. Thanks to Jon Prescott’s short video Soaps.com can now pass along some green advice.
Here are a few green living tips that you can easily employ in your home!
Living green really isn’t all that hard. It starts with using less energy. Buying CFLs instead of traditional incandescent bulbs is a great place to begin! CFL bulbs do cost a little bit more than other light bulbs, but these bulbs use less energy and last longer. So, even though you pay a little more, you save a lot more!
Another tip is to have an energy audit. Whether you live in a house, a condo or an apartment there is a chance that the insulation could be letting some of the heat or air conditioning out. This makes your furnace and A/C use much more energy than they have to. Hiring an independent contractor to find those insulation leaks could save a big chunk of change over the course of a year.
Here is one more tip: buy - and use! - power strips. Power strips help control how much energy is used by your computers, lamps, television and DVD players.
As you can see, saving energy is a huge part of going green and it is something we can all do to help the environment - and save a little money in the process!
