Here Is A Quick And Easy Way To Make Substantial Savings While Living Green Tips And Improving Your

Health In today’s economy it is more important than ever to manage and rule your money before your money rules you, yes? One of the simplest forms of saving money is in the foods we eat. Eating green leafy raw foods with vegetables and replacing 50% of your beef consumption at $5.00 to $6.00 per pound adding pork and chicken to the list will give you savings of easily $ 50.00 per week. In return you will increase your energy due to the ease of digestion for your body compared to the required time to digest animal proteins. When buying your greens and vegetables, choose organic lettuces, vegetables fruits and berries. You will need to replace your animal proteins with plant based proteins which is always a combination of cereals and leguminous plants. Caution is necessary here to insure the proper combinations you need to have the necessary proteins. This is achieved with combinations such as rice, quinoa, with germinated lentil, mung beans and sunflower seeds. Be innovative add Goji berries, blueberries, Acai fruit, seeds such as Pumpkin, Sunflower, and Hemp which are also filled proteins you need. Your savings account will have an extra $600.00 for this exercise alone based on my own experience. In deliberately choosing to reconsider your eating habits you win every where. The benefit to this new lifestyle is the reduction of your garbage by almost 2/3 each week just by eliminating the packaging from processed foods. Much of any waste from raw foods can be composted, so you nourish your gardens, flowers and trees reducing the garbage sent to landfills. In so doing you are living green contributing at reducing pollution in the garbage dumps, seepage of toxic chemicals in the earth which filter back to your waterways, greenhouse gases from the burnt packaging, cutting down on food packaging at a national level. Another way to save money going green is if you are receiving the local newspaper delivered to the door change your subscription to digital. By viewing your newspaper on line you can save an extra $240.00 per year. Again you save money and you save on the paper garbage ad the cutting down of trees for making paper. This is based on what it costs here in a major city. What else is on your plate? Water conservation, however, is also about diet. You can take fewer or shorter showers, but if there’s meat and dairy in your meals, it’s really counteracting those savings. Consider that one pound of beef may consume up to 5,000 gallons of water to produce. To produce butter it requires about 2,044 gallons per pound, while tofu takes only 244 gallons. So, while effective water conservation relies on water efficient equipment and simple habits like showering less which turns out is not only eco-friendly but apparently in style, it also relies on smart dietary choices too. You will save at least 10% on your hot water bill by cutting back showers to 5 minutes per person. Additionally they are many other ways you can save money, which include the following practices: Replace regular light bulbs with compact fluorescents light bulbs with immediate mail in rebates from $15.00 to $25.00! Turn off all lights in rooms when not in use. Install light fixtures with motion sensors in areas that are not used frequently. If you’re not using electronic thermostats for adjusting the temperature in your home, you need to convert. Temperature settings can be programmed for the specific times you are home; end result lowers your heating bill by 10%. When painting your home use recycled paint, this alone can save you $20.00 to $25.00 per gallon of paint! The major big box stores are recycling and selling this paint, Home Depot, Lowes, Rona, Reno Depot. You can buy the special VOC paints which remove all the potential hazardous chemicals that are in regular paint. All paint manufacturers are now selling this quality now. Be very aware of the chemicals in your cleaning products: ape’s (alkylphenol ethoxylates), phosphates, petroleum, active ingredients chlorine and ammonia. The vast majority of cleansing products sold in stores today may degrease and disinfect in pine, lavender and cotton scents, but these toxic concoctions are all-too-often polluting our homes, our bodies and our planet in the process. We worry about the pollution outside, but studies have shown the levels of pollutants inside our homes can actually be 100 times greater! Beyond the allergies and illnesses associated with regular chemical exposure, consider what happens to these cleaners that get washed down the drain, be it laundry detergent, liquid dishwater soap or drain cleaners. They of course get washed away to the nearest municipal treatment plant, and then make their way into our water supplies. Now that you have arrived at this stage of the checklist keep looking for different ways and areas in your home environment which could be improved by making a greener choice.
