Going Green in a Recession

The economy may not be where it should be and you are probably thinking how can I save money or where can I make money.

Believe it or not, going green can do either.

Without spending money you can save by:

Reducing the thermostat: less heating or cooling will save you money on your utility bills. Don't forget to turn off those lights. Are you still using incendescent light bulbs? CFLs have come down in price and do last much longer.

Reduce your weekly garbage by composting and recycling.

Create a weekly menu and buy only those foods you will consume. Less waste and less money spent.

Read the news online. This reduces the cost of having to buy a paper and you are not having to recycle.

Make your own greeting cards by recycling old ones and creating new cards from the old cards.

Wow! This is just a small list. But without spending any money, you can still BE GREEN in these recessional times.
