Save Money and Protect the Planet at the Same Time

With Earth Day 2015 almost upon us, it’s a good time to think about how our actions impact the planet and, more importantly, what we can do to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our environment. Because, let’s face it, this is our home. And right now, it’s the only place we’ve got.

The Little Things Add Up

These are just 13 of the easiest ways to save money while also saving the planet, but there are plenty more. To come up with others, think of all of the different ways you consume products, energy, and fuel, and how you can reduce your usage. Almost any time you’re consuming less, you will be saving […]

Stop Wasting So Much Food

Speaking of saving money on food, one easy way to reduce food costs and be less wasteful is to purchase and consume less food to begin with. According to a report from the National Resources Defense Council, 40% of food produced in the United States is never eaten; instead, it takes up more space in landfills […]

If you want to save money while also avoiding harmful chemicals, consider making your […]

When you need a ladder or power tool, for example, check with your neighbors to see if anyone has one you can […]

Buy Used Stuff

When reusing or repurposing what you already have isn’t possible, take a look at used items before you buy new. Not only will you save money, but you can also avoid the heavy packaging that comes with most new products, the energy it took to create and ship those products, and your time and fuel spent […]

Reuse or Repurpose Everything

One easy way to help the environment is to avoid purchasing new products whenever possible. Easier said than done, I know, but it’s not impossible. You just have to get into the habit of reusing and repurposing things that you already have, whether we’re talking about your wardrobe, home décor, or anything else. Before you […]
