Some simple changes you can make in your daily routine can have a very positive impact on the environment, and your wallet.

Things like using reusable water bottles, reusable grocery bags, and reusable plastic containers to carry your lunch to work. All of these things will save you money and be that much less that ends up being thrown in the trash, and ultimately end up in a dump somewhere.

Other things you can do to have a positive impact on the planet is to save fuel.  That can be as simple as combining errands so you don’t have to make a bunch of trips, getting your car tuned up so it’s running well, and properly inflating your tires.

Again, all of these things will allow you  to spend less on gas and since you’re using less gas that’s fewer dangerous carbon emissions that are being sent into the air.

One of the best places to make a positive change is around your home.  You can do a lot to make sure that your home is energy efficient.

Some of those things will involve making sure the heat you have to pay to make doesn’t go right up your chimney or out of your roof.

You can even build your own wind turbine or solar panels very easily and for very little money, yet it can save you up to 80% off of your energy bills.

I hope some of these simple ideas have helped you see that going green is good for the planet and good for your bottom line, and they’re easy to do too.
