Every day we are inundated with information about environmental preservation and its benefits. One of the most commonly used phrases is “going green”. Going green entails embracing practices that contribute to the protection of the environment and its natural resources. Whether we realize it or not, every single choice we make impacts the environment to a certain extent. This is because, to support everything we do, we use the earth’s natural resources, some of which are not renewable. These resources include water, oil, wood, and metal among many others. Over time, the environment suffers damage that is in many cases irreversible.  

It is our responsibility to do anything in our power to make sure that we take care of the environment and preserve it for future generations. The great thing about it is that there are many ways you can actually save money by making the choice to be more environmentally conscious. A good example is using reusable materials such as the ones found on

Here are six ways you can save money by going green at home:

1. Home-cooked meals

Although going to eat at a restaurant is very convenient, especially for busy people, it can be quite costly. In addition to being costly, restaurant food is loaded with preservatives and salt. The ingredients for a home-cooked meal are way less and cost less. By choosing to cook at home, you can save substantially every month.  

2. Eat more vegetables

Choosing vegetables over meat as your side dish not only saves you money, it also has many health benefits. Meat production uses more resources than vegetable production. This is why more scientists recommend more plant-based meals.

3. Working from home

Working from home cuts costs and at the same time significantly reduces your carbon footprint as well. Technology has made working home a viable option for many people and even employers are realizing the benefits of allowing their employees to work from the comfort of their homes.  

4. Selling your obsolete gadgets  

With so many firms that resell, recycle or refurbish old stuff, you can actually make some money by selling to them some of the old gadgets that you are no longer using. This way, you save the resources that would have been used to come up with brand new gadgets while making some money for yourself.  

5. Carpooling

Carpooling is a great way to save on your fuel expenses. Having fewer cars on our roads significantly reduces air pollution and environmental degradation. You can also opt to use public transport and avoid the hassles of paying for car insurance and garage bills.  

6. Conserve water and reduce heating

Using hot water significantly contributes to your energy bills. By installing low-flow shower heads and using cold water to wash clothes, you can save a lot on what you spend on your water and power bills. Also, make sure all taps stay closed when no one is using them.

We all have a role to play in environmental conservation and if all of us play our part, the world will become a better place to live in. We can also save money with some simple environment-friendly acts such as the ones mentioned here.
