In constant pursuit of improving life at home
Ten simple steps to make no place for waste
Embracing a sustainable lifestyle
REDUCE WATER USE
Forego handwashing and run a full load of dishes or laundry to help save water. Check leaky faucets. Install a low-flow showerhead, and use a rain barrel to water your gardens.
WALK OR RIDE BICYCLES WHEN YOU CAN
Reduce emissions with fresh air and exercise at the same time. It’s a win-win!
CHOOSE REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES + EVERYDROP® FILTERS
Eliminate plastic water bottles from your home and office and instead choose a reusable water bottle. Everydrop® water filters are certified to reduce potentially harmful contaminants like pharmaceuticals and pesticides, along with 99% of lead from your refrigerator or everydrop® dispenser.

SWITCH TO ENERGY-SAVING APPLIANCES
Reduce energy consumption by updating your appliances. On average the refrigerators, washers, dishwashers, and freezers we make today are more energy efficient than the ones we made even five and 10 years ago. It’s because we are in constant pursuit of improving life at home and continually innovate to deliver products based on the environmental footprint of home appliances.
Food scraps, plastic, paper, and even appliances can be recycled or repurposed. Learn more about appliance recycling here.
PLANT AN ECO-FRIENDLY GARDEN
Start with compost from your food scraps and green waste. Grow plants that attract bees for pollination and ladybugs that thrive on harmful aphids instead of using pesticides. Plant edibles for your meals. Fertilize with manure or seaweed. Then don’t forget to use natural mulch to help control soil temperature and moisture, prevent erosion, suppress weeds and to enhance the beauty of your garden.
INVEST IN QUALITY CLOTHING
Use your money wisely when shopping for apparel. Avoid low-quality clothing that will wear out quickly and end up in landfills. Clean your wardrobe regularly, thrift, and donate to others when you are done.
Travel less and reduce fuel waste. Support organic farm markets when nearby.
USE NATURAL LIGHT
Open your blinds and curtains and use natural light as much as possible before turning on indoor lights.
