Electricity Bill

Content by Kyle Lowe

I got my electricity bill in the mail and there was a note on the back that said if I decided to “go green” and switch to online billing that I could save ten percent every month. Our electric bill is not usually too expensive, but saving ten percent every month will definitely help. I decided to go to exedesatelliteinternet.net and set up a more dependable internet service. I am so glad that I did too. I called my power company and told them that I wanted to switch so that I could save each month. They said More >

I am sure most people have heard of Walgreens pharmacies.

I run several businesses and like to take my laptop with me when I travel as most business people do. Even people who are vacationing or traveling for leisure take their laptops on their trips now. When traveling you must connect to unsecured networks in motels, coffee houses and restaurants. This fact makes your computer much more vulnerable to malware and viruses. My laptop contracted a virus a couple of years ago and it took me forever to get More >

Help Your Favorite Vendors Get Serious With Lighting

Electric lights in the past have traditionally used a significant amount of power. We are so attached to lighting; the chance of using a smaller number of light producing appliances is not very great. As people spend more time indoors or at outside events, more lighting will be required. Now for the good news, you can help do something about cutting the amount of power these lights will use. You probably have replaced your lighting in your home with energy saving light bulbs such as fluorescent or LED. This is the first step to becoming more environmentally friendly with the More >

Shop Green

The holidays are here and it is time to go shopping. Are you planning to shop Green this year? There is nothing wrong with being eco-friendly while shopping for Christmas gifts.

Try to purchase products which have the least amount of packaging materials to be disposed of. Use reusable shopping bags as much as possible when shopping for Christmas presents as well.
