We all know that looking after our planet and the resources that it offers us is important, however, what we might not realise is that when you go green, you also may save yourself a whole host of cash too and what could be better than that?
With so many people turning to payday loans or short-term loans in order to get through each and every month, we thought that it was about time to think about new and inventive ways to save yourself some money each and every month. Whilst having a positive impact on the environment too.
One of the simplest ways that you can try and have a positive impact on the environment is by recycling. Recycling is not only something that everyone can do, but it also has a huge benefit to the environment too. In fact, it is thought that around 60% of all the rubbish that you put in the rubbish bin, could actually be recycled. The trouble is that you may not know exactly what you can recycle and how to go about it. A great place to find out more about recycling in your local area is Recycle Now, where you can find your local recycling services.
If there is one type of recyclable material that is currently in the media, it is plastic. Plastic is not only filling up landfills around the world, but, even worse, it is making its way into our seas and oceans too. Which is having a hugely detrimental effect on the wildlife that call it their home. We can all take steps to cut down on our plastic usage, one simple step that you can take is to use reusable bottles to drink from, rather than buying a plastic bottle of drink (such as water). Not only will this have a good impact on the amount of plastics that you throw away, but it will also save you money as you won’t have to worry about paying out for a new bottle of drink each and every time.
We all need to clean our homes, however, what might surprise you is how many chemicals and harmful substances you will find in even your most everyday of cleaning products. This is why there are more and more companies out there at the moment which are dedicated to all-natural cleaning solutions. They can work brilliantly, however, if you are trying to save money then you will find that they are actually quite expensive. A fantastic alternative is to make your own cleaning products, using items that you have already at home, this will not only be kinder to the environment, but also on your pocket too. Need some inspiration on where to start? Check out these home-made cleaning product ideas.
Food is vital for us all, however, the production, packaging, transportation and then waste that comes with food is having a huge impact on the world around us. Whilst you cannot live without food, what you can try to do is think about new ways to approach the food that you eat on a daily basis. Growing your own is one of the simplest things that you can do. Not only will you know that the food that you have grown is completely eco-friendly and pesticide free, but you will also have a variety of ingredients to hand which you can use for your meals.
One big expense for many us has to be our heating and electricity, however, much like many things on the list, they are both something that we all need. The thing that it is important to remember when it comes to these utilities is that you may be surprised by how much money you can save if you think about heating your home in a smart way. A simple place to start is with the insulation in your home, sure, insulation can come with an initial investment, however, in the long term you will find that not only do you have a deliciously warm and inviting home, but you will also have a reduced energy bill at the same time. Giving you money to go and spend elsewhere, yet still have the home that you hope for.
As you can see, there are so many ways that you can try and go green and save cash too. Why not try out these top tips for yourself and see if they can help you to cut down on the likelihood of you having to take out a payday loan or a short-term loan?
