How Going Green Can Save Money and Be Economical Too
Be Green and Save on Energy Costs
It is easier to save money on energy costs than you think. Simple steps, such as washing dishes by hand instead of running a half-empty dishwasher, air-drying your laundry, and using CFLs instead of the regular bulbs, are all great at helping you save the planet while saving some money too.
Reduce and Reuse to Save Money on Stationery
Reducing your consumption of paper, even in a home with children and regular drawing sessions, is an easy and economical way to go green. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “reducing or preventing waste, reusing products, and recycling items are important ways to go green and live green.” Encourage children to use both sides of the paper before throwing it away. Turn papers with only one side used into a notepad by simply stapling them together, clean side up. Keep the free pencils, pens, and stationery, which many offices hand out, to stock up for back-to-school time.
