These days, green living is a hot topic. Scan the pages of a range of publications, and you’ll see stories about how people and businesses are working to save water, save energy, and generally save the Earth. But what you won’t always hear about is what else they’re saving: cold, hard cash.
Too often, it seems like making your life greener means spending more: loading up your cart with organic produce at Whole Foods, or shelling out big bucks for hemp-fiber blue jeans. But that needn’t be the case. One of the best ways to be more eco-friendly is to cut back on your use of energy and natural resources – which cost money. In taking steps to protect the environment, you can protect your wallet as well.
