Go Green, Save Money and Save Natural Resources for Future Generations

go greenDoing your part by going green goes a long way in help preserving the scarce resources of the planet we call home. Living an environment friendly lifestyle only requires a few simple adjustments. Not only is it a selfless thing to do, but there are some incentives that should motivate you to take action. By following some simple advice, you could go green and save money at the same time. In fact you will be able to make a difference in the fact that you will be able to leave something for the future generation to use.


Bottled water

Bottled water has become notorious among environmental activists, and for good reason. Plastic can take several thousands of years to completely break down and corrode. Think about the millions of water bottles lying in the landfill at this moment. Prevent another bottle from ending up there by using a reusable water bottle. You can fill it up from home or from a fountain. This will save you money. Buying bottled water can greatly add to your expenses. This is unnecessary considering water is easily accessible from a filtered faucet.


Document printing

Your work may require you to print out documents regularly. People tend to print out papers before proofreading it on the monitor. They catch a typo once it is on paper and end up having to reprint another one. Use a spell checker and make sure the grammar and punctuations are all in the right places before printing. This will keep you from having to invest in copy paper less often.


Bill Payment

You should also pay all your bills online. You can view all your transactions and statements over the web, so no need to have a paper copy mailed to you. This saves you the cost of a stamp each time.


Use Skype

Your work may also require you to attend meetings with others from different locations. Instead of commuting and meeting in person, use online methods such as Skype. This allows you to view and hear everyone from your monitor. This prevents an unnecessary road trip, which emits smog into the atmosphere. It also cuts down on the trips to the gas station. If meeting in person is required, then try to carpool. Keeping your tires properly inflated will also ensure better gas mileage.


Make a Difference

Do not believe for a minute that because you are only one person, that you cannot make a difference. Each effort you make to contribute to the environment helps preserve the resources for the next generation. Each small action you take can add up to a big difference. The coming generations will be thankful that they have some amount of natural resources still with them for use and they are not totally depleted.
