ECOTIP: If you subscribe to your favorite magazines instead of buying them from a newsstand, you'll get the convenience of delivery and will save 75 percent or more off the newsstand price. Sixty percent of most magazines at the newsstand aren't sold and have to be hauled off to the trash dump- a waste of time, money, and energy.

ECOTIP: Download tunes instead of purchasing them at the store. The average price of CD is about $ 15 dlls., whereas an album download is only about $10 dlls. Each month, more than 45 tons of CD's become obsolete- outdated or unwanted- and end up in landfills.

ECOTIP: Lawn Care
Cut your grass so it´s two inches high, and leave the clippings on the lawn. You´ll spend less time mowing and raking, and you won´t have to water your lawn as much. Forty percent of water in summer is allocated to outdoor usage when rates are highest. Also, less lawn care usually means using fewer chemicals that will leach into runoff water and damage local fish and bird habitats.

Ecocancun tips!

ECOTIP: Car Idling
Limit the amount of time you let your vehicle´s engine run in the garage. An idling vehicle emits 20 times more pollution than one traveling 32 miles per hour.

ECOTIP: Outdoor Lighting
Turn off your outside lights when they´re not needed.If possible, use timers or monitor sensors.

ECOTIP: Washers
Set warm wash and cold rinse cycles, and save 90 % ever the energy used when machine washing in hot water only. Together, all households could save the energy equivalent of thousands barrels of oil a day by swithching from hot-hot to warm-cold cycles. Thanks!
