Okay, okay, so maybe not always. But the simple things you can do around your house, most of those also save you money, don’t they? I think if more people knew that, more people - even people who don’t care about the environment, global warming or saving the animals - would take the time to try to be a little more environmentally-friendly.
Being greener and cheaper can be as simple as turning off the water when you brush your teeth - or reusing something free. When you receive a package in the mail, instead of throwing away the box and packing materials and then buying new stuff when you need to ship something out, why not keep those things and reuse them for the next package you send out? If you’re planning to purchase a new furnace or water heater, installing energy-saving appliances in your home can get you a tax break.
