Spring is the perfect time to develop sustainable, eco-friendly habits. Here are five ways you can go green, while saving money!
Minimize energy usage: There are a variety of ways you can conserve energy, like lowering the thermostat when you go to bed, making sure to shut off all the lights before you leave the house, or unplugging appliances when not in use. These practices aren’t just good for the environment…they will also help you save money each month!
Use less water: This can be done by opting for showers instead of baths, taking shorter showers, not leaving the faucet running, and also fixing leaky pipes! Not only are you working to preserve water, but you’re also decreasing your water bill.
Make your own natural cleaning products: Instead of spending money on toxic, household cleaners…make your own with these simple recipes! DIY cleaning products are good for your wallet and the environment.
