    Green Living Myths Busted

    Green Living Myths Busted

    It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by environmental issues. You may feel like there is nothing you as one person or one family can do to make a difference, but that couldn’t be farther from the truths. Here are a few green living myths busted.

    It’s Not As Expensive As You Think

    As green awareness and demand rises shopping green is increasingly becoming the norm. For example, most electronics and appliances are designed to be energy efficient. When investments must be made, get creative. For example, if your city requires reusable shopping bags you can find many in stores for just $1 or $2 each. Reusable shopping bags are often free gifts so check to see if you have some that you forgot about or ask friends and family if they have any extras laying around.

    Yes, YOU Can Have Impact

    Every green change you make contributes to the collective good. Some changes are far more impactful than others, but every little bit adds up. For example, eating just one vegan or plant-based meal a day can save tens of thousands of gallons of water—and enough carbon emissions to drive from Los Angeles to New York. With the right recipes, you will feel full and won’t miss the meat and dairy in your meals. Even if it’s just Meatless Monday, it makes a powerful difference.

    Last but not least, many of the changes you make will improve your health so they are good for you and the environment!
