It's no secret the environment is suffering as a result of harmful toxins being released into the atmosphere. A big part of that is the electricity we use on a daily basis. But you can do your part and go solar so you can reduce your carbon footprint and help save the environment.

Save the Environment

The reason solar power has become increasingly popular is because people want to do their part in helping to save the earth from the damage humans are doing to it. By using solar power, you're using a renewable resource to power your home instead of the finite resource of gas or coal.

Save a Ton of Money

The idea of installing solar panels in your home may seem like a big investment, but it will pay off dozens of times over. You'll start saving money from day one. This is because you will be using the sun to power your home and you can either greatly reduce or entirely eliminate your expensive electricity bill once and for all.

Awesome Incentives

The government awards people for going solar and doing their part to help the environment. They actually offer pretty great money incentives to people who install solar panels on their home. So you are basically getting paid to save money and help save the environment!

1. "Should have burned this place down when I had the chance."

2. "There were these huge bins of clothes and everybody was rifiling through them like crazy and I grabbed one… and it fit! So I don’t that this is totally just a woman’s suit. At the very least, it’s bisexual."

3. "Yes, I’ve heard ‘women and children first’, but we do not employ children. We are not a sweatshop, thankfully. And women are equal in the workplace, by law, so if I let them out first… I have a lawsuit on my hands."

4. "Close your eyes. Picture a convict. What's he wearing? Nothing special, baseball cap on backwards, baggy pants... he says something ordinary like... 'yo, thats shizzle.' Okay. Now slowly open your eyes again. Who are you picturing? A black man? Wrong. That was a white woman. Surprised? Well, shame on you."

14. "Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation."

15. "When I was Ryan's age, I worked in a fast food restaurant to save up money for school. And then I lost it in a pyramid scheme. But I learned more about business right then and there than business school would ever teach me."

That's what Oscar said. Toby is the instruction card you throw away. Pam's a solid seven. And yeah, you know what? Ryan is probably, like, a two. But sometimes twos can be wild. So watch out. And I am obviously the joker."

3 Ways to Save Money on Utilities During Winter

As college students or young adults, we're always looking for ways to save some extra money each month. Here's how you can keep your house warm without spending a fortune on heating this winter.

Don't leave your heater blasting for the next two months and pay a ton of money to the utility company. Here are three ways to keep warm and save money.

Make Sure Your Heating System Is Performing Optimally

Your heating system is what will keep your house warm throughout the winter months, but don't pay a ton of extra money because your system is working harder to heat your home. If your heating system is working at its best, it will save you a ton of money during the winter. If you think your system isn't working properly, you can have professionals come out and take a look.

Keep Your Home Insulated

Insulation helps to keep your home warm without using extra heat. By keeping your home insulated, you can save a fortune on utilities because your heating system will be doing a lot less heating. If you don't want to pay for insulation, you can do small things around the house to keep it warmer. Keep the curtains closed all the time to hold in heat. Have the fans turn the opposite way to circulate warm air. These small things can really make a difference.

Bundle Up

Instead of jumping straight to turn the heater on when it gets a bit cold in your home, bundle up with a sweater, sweatpants, and a blanket first. Keep yourself warm using comfy clothing instead of paying money to heat your home. You'll still feel just as toasty, and you'll see a big drop in your monthly utility bill from not using the heater as much.
