There are many things you can do to green your life in 2018, or anytime you want to get started. Regardless of what inspired the change, there are a few surprising benefits of going green.
There are many ways in which green living can improve your health. For example, adding a plant or two to every room, switching to soy candles, and almost entirely green cleaning products will improve the air quality in your home—which is particularly important for anyone with asthma or respiratory problems.
You Will Save Money
It’s true, green products often cost more upfront, but can save you money in many ways. Your energy-efficient investments will reduce your monthly water and power bill. Thrift store shopping slashes your clothing budget. Your window box herb garden and home garden will slash your food budget—really maximize your harvest by freezing, canning, and dehydrating you produce. Your green skincare and beauty products actually work, eliminating the need to constantly test new products. Riding your bike to work cuts your gas bill, and doubles as your cardio.
You will also find ways to repurpose, upcycle, donate, or gift almost everything you use which is an excellent creative outlet, but there are many more surprising benefits of going green that you will find along the way!
