					Go Green And Save Money

Everywhere you look these days it seems that the main message is, "go
green and save money." This is an appealing message for most people as we
are constantly warned of the dire consequences of global warming out of
control. People want to do their bit to help save the planet, and if they
can save money at the same time, then it just obviously makes sense all
round.

You can go green and save money just about anywhere. Your home is
probably the most obvious place to start, but you can also do wonders
with your car, in the office, out shopping, traveling on vacation, and
much more. The opportunities are almost endless; going green doesn't have
to be more expensive, you can definitely go green and save money at the
same time.

Your home probably leaks heat out during the winter and leaks heat in
during the summer. For this reason most of us have winter heaters and
summer air conditioning units. This should be the first place you
investigate of how to go green and save money. Are all your windows
tight? Are the door seals tight too? This is where heat can leak out and
make your electricity bills soar.

If your house doesn't have good loft insulation heat will pour out in
winter and pour in during the summer. Insulation is one of the best ways
to go green and save money. Your walls can have their cavities filled
with insulating foam as well, all keeping the heat inside in winter and
outside in summer for more comfortable living.

The water you use in the home is perhaps the easiest "go green and save
money" source you have. Look for leaks first. Leaking faucets, even just
the occasional drip, accounts for a lot of money wasted over time. You
could waste as much as 140 gallons in a week!

Are your hot water pipes insulated? They should be if you aim to go green
and save money. Insulated pipes let the hot water reach the faucets
faster, thereby saving water, while you go green and save money too. Low
flow toilets are another way to save water. You don't need to flush
gallons of water away every time, just what you need.

Edison was a genius, but his light bulb invention has been superceded by
the new compact fluorescent light bulbs. These are bulbs that use a mere
25% of the energy that a traditional light bulb uses. They also last 10
times longer. Replace all your traditional bulbs for compact fluorescent
light bulbs and instantly go green and save money!
