Benefits of Going Green
We all know we should “go green,” but we don’t all know the reasons why. Here are three important benefits of going green.
1. It saves you money
There are several ways to save money and live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. First, consider switching to energy efficient appliances (affiliate links included). Although it’s a bit of an investment up front, you’ll notice the long-term monetary benefits in your lower monthly energy bills.
Second, unplug your appliances when you’re not using them. Use a power stripto make it easy. Not only will you save energy, you’ll also save money.
2. It keeps you healthy
Eliminating toxic chemicals found in cleaning supplies, cooking products and personal care items can drastically improve your health and reduce instances of skin, eye and respiratory irritations.
Also, if it’s an option, consider walking orbiking when possible instead of driving or taking public transit. Not only is it a free option, but it will also keep you healthy and active.
3. It has a long-term impact
Going green is a lifestyle choice that has both immediate and long-term benefits. Living a more environmentally conscious lifestyle today helps ensure a more vibrant planet tomorrow. Reducing carbon emissions, recycling, eliminating plastics, and saving water are all ways we can promote long-term environmental health.
