GREEN WAYS TO SAVE

Dear Loving Readers and Visitors,

Contrary to general misconception that you need to spend lots to go green, I am glad to say that you can even save more by going green. I am sure some of you may have heard the clarion calls of; "Global Warming", "Save the Planet", etc. I also must state that to make this "green movement" workable, it must be practical, and economically profitable for the average family. So, if you want to help the planet, you can advise your family and friends how to save money by going green. Below please find some of useful guides you may adopt:-

1.    3R - Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.

If your house is in desperate need of de-cluttering, clear it out by either donating or selling off the unnecessary items and make some money! So, go through your home, section by section if it is more practicable to you, and sort out items that need to go. Separate these items according to your plan, either to be sold or given to charity. By doing so, you not only clear more space for breathing, but also save the planet by letting other people reuse or recycle those items not useful to you.
If you have a habit of keeping all sorts of stuff in your car, then I have good news for you. The quickest option for you to earn extra money is getting up early at the weekend and head to a car boot sale. Alternatively, you may opt to sell on eBay, especially for those not keen on early mornings or facing the public. For larger items, you may specify that buyers collect them at the comfort of your own home. It is so convenient to turn those unwanted items into instant cash. What's more do you need?  You can do all these through a few clicks of button of your finger. 

For those serviceable items that aren't in good enough condition, you may either sell them or give to the charitable organisations.

2. Minimise Waste

This is another useful mean of saving the environment by reducing waste. Below are some suggestions which you may deploy to reduce waste:-

a) Make it a best practice to check your fridge and cupboards before going shopping. Make a list of what you need, this will not only prevent you from buying too much, but it also helps you to save time and cash. Through this sort of planning, you will save time to go shopping again for items you have missed out or spend time to sort them at a later stage.

b) Be inventive and innovative by using up what is in the fridge before it expires. Adopt first in first out and ensure that the earliest item must be at the top so that it is more convenient for others to remove them first.

c) Cook meals in bulk for both lunch and dinner. This is very common in oriental society, where they cook the dishes for both lunch and dinner.

d)  Put in a bag all your vegetable peelings, tea bags, egg shells, egg boxes, toilet roll tubes, banana peel and coffee grounds -- and the compost can be used to fertilize the garden.

e) Invest and keep a compost bin in your house. This  not only allows you to compost your grass clippings and leaves, but at the same time, you can also put in all of your vegetable peelings, tea bags, egg shells, egg boxes, toilet roll tubes, banana peel and coffee grounds to be used as fertilizer in your garden. You will discover that you are able to recover your investment cost on compost bin through saving on your fertilizer cost. 

3. Generate your own Energy

Renewable energy means energy generated from natural sources such as the wind, turbines, the sun, or sea. In tropical areas, we are generally taking advantage of this renewable energy. One good example is letting our washing dry in the sun, rather than in the tumble dryer. Solar panels are commonly used as well.

I have heard rumours that devices such as wind turbines could be viewed as home improvements that increase the value of your home. However, council tax bills increase unfairly as a result, thus making this alternative no longer attractive.

4. Public Transport or Car pooling

Using public transportation is another significant means of saving the environment if it is practicable for you to do so. Alternatively, you may opt for car pooling so as to reduce the traffic and saving the environment. 

So, what are waiting for, try out a few of these tips now and see how much you can save? Please put forward through comments should you have any more ideas. Thank you in advance for your kind participation.
