Use Cloth Napkins
Using cloth napkins instead of paper napkins is an advantageous move. They are more durable, reduce expense, save cash, and reduce trash. It even saves energy used in transporting and processing your waste. Recyclable paper napkin can prove to be beneficial for planet but it’s even better to not to have anything to recycle. Go green and become eco-friendly through use of cloth napkins.
Eat less meat
Meat is not so good for the environment. Looking from the money perspective, it is also not cheap. For a matter of fact seventy percent of the Amazon rainforest has been destroyed to raise cows. The production of meat results in more carbon emissions than any other protein. It doesn’t mean you should go completely vegetarian but at least lessen your quantity of meat in order to improve environment and also to save money. Go cost effective and eco-friendly with less meat.
Grow your own food
Growing your own food is not so complicated and tough as it sounds. Growing your own food results in the reduction of carbon footprints of Sasquatch-sized, all those planes and refrigerated trucks importing berries from South America. Green beans, Cherry tomatoes, salad greens, are considered to be the most valuable food to be grown if you want to go green along with saving money. If you don’t have a garden, you can still grow herbs on your windowsill which helps in going eco-friendly with savings in long run.
There’s something you will be glad to know and it is that” tap water is drinkable”. You are amazed but this fact is totally true. Carrying a BPA –free water bottle with you can save your cost of 3 dollar to purchase bottles from outside-the same cost of 700 gallons of water out of tap at home. Less use of plastic bottles leads to less production and it would ultimately result in benefit to environment. It’s harmful to environment in a manner that 80 % of these plastic bottles cannot be recycled and due to this fact, for producing 1 bottle, three times the amount of water in a water bottle is used. Thus go green and save money by ditching plastic water bottles.
Turn to solar
Turning solar is much advantageous to environment. Not only to environment, it’s also so damn important to you. It saves much of your cost with eco friendly techniques. People are becoming alert about solar usage and thus to encourage them US government also offers tax credits to those who install some panels to supplement their energy expenditure. People are interested but they fear the risk of initial high startup cost. But for relief of your dilemma, some of the companies namely Sun Run, Solar city and Roof Diagnostics are ready to take up that cost for you. If you are in a destination they are working into then they will set up everything for you free of cost and you are able to save at least 10 % of your electricity bill by going eco-friendly but the only condition is that your roof should be in such a position to receive enough sun.
