Earth Day is April 22 and it’s the perfect time to think about how we can care for our planet a little more. Westport Federal Credit Union has some simple ways that you can go green this Earth Day.

Turn Off the Faucet – You can save up to 8 gallons of water a day just by shutting off the water while brushing your teeth.

Ditch the Plastic Straws – Save the sea turtles. Americans use nearly 500 million plastic straws every day. Replace your plastic straws with a set of reusable ones made from stainless steel, silicone, or bamboo.

Enroll in e-Statements – This Earth Day, Westport Federal Credit Union is encouraging all of our members to enroll in e-statements. Not only is it good for the environment, but it ensures more financial security. We also offer other mobile banking options such as our EZ Banking account to pay bills, transfer funds and check balances. If you don’t currently have an online banking account, enroll here. Along with our mobile app to check balances, transfer funds or deposit a check. You can also fill out a loan application right from your home without printing any paper!

Get a Reusable Water Bottle – Ditch plastic water bottles and get a reusable water bottle that matches you and your style! Plus, it’ll save you money in the long run

Wash Laundry in Cold Water –About 90% of the energy your washing machine uses goes towards heating the water. To save energy, wash your laundry on the cold water setting for at least one load a week.

Simple changes can result in a big impact for your pockets and for our planet! For more information about e-statements, contact Member Services at 508.679.0197.
