Going Green While Staying Home
As everyone outside of essential workers, continues to do everything from home, Samsung employees are sharing how they’re exploring greener ways of living.
#1 Saving Energy
“A week ago, I purchased the Samsung Smart Things motion sensors and smart bulbs to conserve energy since I’m working from home now,” said Desiré Willis, based in South Carolina. “I leveraged the automation functionality to turn the lights on and off in my bathrooms, kitchen and office based on motion detection.”
#2 Growing their own food!
With warmer weather around the corner, Julie Montrose, based in New Jersey, and her family decided to start growing their own vegetable garden!
Phillip Navarre, in Tennessee, had the same idea and is growing his batch of vegetables in an outdoor mobile garden.
# 3 Beekeeping in their backyard!
Brendan Groneck, based in Indiana, shared that he started bee keeping and has two hives already up and running!
# 4 Making their coffee from home
“I can’t say I don’t miss my Starbucks, but using my reusable 2020 NRM tumbler keeps me caffeinated and thinking green,” shared Jennifer Pointer, also in Indiana.
#5 Upping their recycling game
Karyn Schaefer, based in Michigan, upgraded her recycling bin to better separate the items that have been generated from eating at home more. Not only is she saving money by not eating out, but she’s responsibly recycling the packaging waste.
#6 Reusing rain water run off
Looking for a way to save on water consumption? Francisco Bermudez, in Illinois, is saving rain water runoff to water his garden.
Happy Earth Month from all of us at Samsung!
