Make Green Your Favorite Color

Being thrifty saves money.
But it can also save Mother Earth.

Did you know there is about a 90 percent overlap between being green and being thrifty.  Do something to save some green and you're probably also being ecologically green.

If you buy less, less will probably end up in the landfill.
If you make your own cleaning supplies there's less packaging to go into the garbage.
If you buy used something new does not have to be manufactured for you.
If you cook from scratch your car will not have to be used as much since you won't always be heading to restaurants or picking up take out.
If you compost, your food scraps will feed you and your soil.

If you buy less, you will spend less.
If you clean with baking soda, vinegar and dishwashing liquid you will spend less not having to buy so many one purpose manufactured cleaners.
If you buy used items, some with the tags still on, you will save hundreds.
If you cook from scratch you will save a fortune in money, and also in calories.
If you drive less you will end up pumping fewer gallons of gas and more green will stay in your pocket.
If you make your own compost you won't have to buy anything to enhance your soil, or lug it home.

Small things can make both you and Mother Nature richer.
