To think and go green is simply to be mindful of and sensitive to the natural environment in your daily life.
It does not take a lot of work to go green. Simply being conscious of how you use the environment is a big step to being more green. Doing good for the planet while doing good for your wallet is really the way to go. Therefore, it’s time to make a stand and ensure that everyone decides to go green.
A place to start here is implementing the three R’s – reduce, reuse, and recycle. These three R’s are not only important for a healthy environment, but they can also save you money.
Time to go green
Reducing energy consumption around the home can be quite simple. If you have drafty windows, have them sealed up to prevent energy loss and save you money. If you water your lawn, installing a flow meter to track your water usage can keep you accountable and ensure you are not wasteful. Limiting shower times and only running the dishwasher when it is full are other easy ways to save water.
To go green requires you to rethink your lifestyle. The added bonus of this is that you will also save money. For example, installing solar panes or a wind turbine on your roof has a double benefit. You will help the environment as you will not be adding to the demand for fossil fuels to create the electricity that you use. Furthermore, you won’t need to pay for an energy company for your electricity. Finally, if you gain a connection to the grid then you can actually put energy back into the grid and make some extra money!
So with every chance you get, come up with unique ways to continue using what you already have, because you can repurpose just about anything.
Just think of the possibilities not just to save the world but to save your cash as well.
