Here’s why you may want to consider going green to save money if for no other reason…
Going green isn’t just good for the planet; it’s also good for your health – and your wallet! In fact, some people are choosing to live a greener, more environmentally-friendly lifestyle simply for the monetary savings it provides (hey, if that’s your motivation, we’re okay with it).
Not only can choosing eco-friendly appliances save you money when it comes to energy costs, but there are many other ways in which “going green” can save you some green.
Just making a few simple changes in your lifestyle and embracing more eco-friendly choices may dramatically reduce your living expenses – it’s a win for you, and a win for the planet!
Here are just a few super simple ways that going green can save you money:
Lower Gas Costs
You can save yourself a lot of money on gas for your vehicle by either carpooling, taking the bus, or commuting by bike when you can. Finding more eco-friendly alternatives to driving your car may save you thousands of dollars per year…
Reduced Energy Expenses
The money it costs to heat or cool the inside of your building can quickly eat away at your budget…
Money Saved on Food
…Packing and transporting food to supermarket shelves requires a lot of gas, energy and money, and you can expect to pay more to help cover these expenses. Growing your own vegetables at home is a great way to eliminate these extra costs while doing some good for the planet – plus it can be a lot of fun too!
Reducing Water Usage
If you want to lower your water bill, adjusting your water heater’s settings may be the perfect way to cut some of the costs while conserving energy…
Lower Waste Disposal Costs
If you are a homeowner, you have to pay to have your trash hauled off to the dump each week. By reducing your waste, you can schedule trash pickups to occur less frequently and limit the trash that ends up in landfills. Recycling…is one of the best ways to make your trash loads smaller. Composting your food waste not only reduces what you send to the landfill, but can also be a source of fertile soil for your garden.
