How do I go green?

Only purchase what you need. Cut down on your car use. Want to get out on the water? Consider canoeing, sailing or kayaking. Mow your lawn with a push mower and sweep or rake your yard and driveway.

There is no way to reuse gas or oils, other than returning used oils to the facilities listed below.

  • The Environmental Story

    Fossil fuels are non-renewable resources because they take millions of years to form, and reserves are being depleted much faster than new ones are being made. The production and use of fossil fuels raise environmental concerns.
