Going green at home can be simple and hassle free with just a few changes in your daily habits. One of the best advantages of these changes is that you will not only be helping the planet, but can save money as well.
One of the first things that you can do is to recycle plastic, paper and glass items when done with them. You can keep separate bins in your kitchen or garage, lined with trash bags, to put the items into. When full, you can turn them in to your local recycling facility. Many times you can earn money for turning in aluminum cans and glass bottles, depending on what state you live in.
Instead of buying paper towels, cut up old shirts and towels to make convenient rages. These can be washed and reused over and over. This is much better than throwing them out where they will only end up in a landfill. They are great for cleaning and multitudes of other uses, along with saving you money on purchasing towels at the store.
Another smart way to go green is to grow your own vegetables in a small house garden. You can use vegetable scraps and grass clippings from your yard to make rich compost for the plants. You can also save a ton of money eating your own food versus shopping at the local grocery store. Recycling, growing your own food and reusing old items in new ways can make going green an enjoyable experience.
