This is a question many people have asked me and unfortunately the answer is not that easy. While, yes, to buy organic and items that are green can be quite costly, there are also many ways to be green that are very affordable. You do not need to spend a lot of money to be green. It simple requires a willingness to be a better steward of God’s planet and some creativity.
When I first decided that I wanted to be green, I was not swimming in the green…if ya know what I mean. LOL! However, I had a desire to be a better steward of the planet and I started to brainstorm. It helps me be more creative and I am forced to come up with cheap and free ways to be an environmentally minded person.
Yep, that’s all it takes, people. Willingness and effort.
Eco Tips to Get Your Started on the Greener…Cheaper Path
Recycle. most states have recycling programs and they provide the bins and pick up service for minimal cost. It is actually a part of your garbage bill…at least it is in my town. this ONE act can do a world of good for the environment!
Reuse. start thinking about ways that you can reuse the items you use every day.
Limit paper use. stop overusing paper towels and paper products like they are going out of style. make the most of everything and use it more then once. we have many paper tips here.
Stop wasting. waste is something anyone and everyone can stop doing. it is free and simply requires willingness.
These are just a few simple changes to get you started. If you implement even one of them, you are already making a difference!
