Green Your ZZZs: Stay Warm with Blankets

Tip #3: Use Extra Blankets in Winter

Save energy and money by turning down the thermostat and throwing an extra blanket on the bed. As with sheets, look for natural, organic fibers when purchasing a new blanket. Even better, skip the "new" part and make your own quilt from recycled sweaters.
