Being green can benefit both the environment and your wallet.
On a global level, the importance of environmental awareness cannot be understated. The global scientific community has widely agreed that man made pollution is causing dramatic changes to our weather systems.
Although correlations are difficult to prove, it has been suggested that recent reductions in rainfall and droughts, as well increase in large destructive weather systems could be due to the changing climate.
Actions like turning off the lights in your home or going solar will not prevent droughts or hurricanes, but it’s important that we each take responsibility for our energy usage and do what we can to reduce consumption of harmful fossil fuels.
When it comes to day-to-day decisions, some may have to been made based on your wallet, and not your higher notions of environmental impact. We all want to do what is right - but we also have to be responsible with our money.
Becoming more environmentally friendly can also add up to great savings in your wallet. Whether it’s turning off lights around the house, buying more energy efficient appliances, or installing solar panels, going green can be great for your wallet
Whether you’re an eco warrior, or couldn’t care less about the climate, there are still great reasons to go green. Becoming more efficient in your usage of energy can result in great savings, and may ultimately work to reduce pollution and reverse the effects of climate change.
