Go Green! Ways to Live Green

by Dennis

I really am serious, you can save the planet and save money at the same time. Here are a few ideas of ways to live green:

Conserve energy:

  • Start by turning off lights and unplugging power strips
  • Next you can seal all of your doors and windows
  • When replacing appliances us Energy Start replacements
  • A solar hot water heater, with rebates, should pay for itself the first year, leaving your electric bill thirty percent less

Eat organic, grow your own and shop local. It's a lot cheaper than prepackaged food or restaurants.

Walk, ride a bike, use mass transit or carpool. Lower your carbon footprint and your monthly gas bill. Consider electric or hybrid for your next vehicle for more gas savings.

If you drink or smoke, well there's a few hundred a month that could go to better uses.

Saving money does not have to be dull or boring, you just do some things differently; you live healthier, and you just might be happier.
