After the weekly indoor soccer game, the bench is usually littered with half consumed bottles of water and sports drink (and not always from my team). We pay a high cost for bottled water, by the gallon it is often more than we pay for fuel.
This simple life hack will save you $55 a year (family of four) on your water bill. Use an up-cycled half gallon milk jug, filled with water or sand, placed in your toilet tank to create displacement. This half gallon of volume will save about that same amount per flush.
GreenShortz exhibited at the Keep America Beautiful conference last week and I got to talk with Keep America Beautiful president Jennifer Jehn about their mission. Keep America Beautiful has almost 600 local affiliates across the nation that help communities stay clean, green and beautiful through litter prevention, recycling promotion and beautification projects.
The bicycle generator gets an 21st century upgrade! The Atom by Siva Cycle is a Kickstarter-funded, axle-mounted, pedal powered generator. It has an integrated/removable battery to charge your phone off-bike. But it also has a USB port you mount to the seat post to direct-charge your phone, or USB device, while your ride. Awesome!
My dripping faucet was costing me $118 dollars a year! Time to fix it! A dripping faucet costs money every minute of the day...but how much? My dripping shower was being neglected (honesty is the best policy)...partly because I've wanted to measure it and make a video. This video illustrates what I found and details the math of how I figured out the dollar amount hitting my wallet. It was more than I thought! Yikes! I'm making time to fix this faucet.
