As we have finally reached the 100th tip I wanted to take a moment and reflect a little on what we have written so far. I hope that in reading our tips you have discovered that there are many things you can do that are green and that not only dont cost you money but let you save money. Moreover they really aren’t that hard to do!
I think what sometimes stops people from being green is the thought that someone’s going to look at them and think they’re stupid, a dork, a granola head, you name it. I remember in high school when I would collect all the pop cans people left after lunch and take them home to be recycled and people would stare. Somehow, even for someone who is by nature a people pleasure, that never seemed to bother me too much, if anything it motivated me.
So my tip for today is, don’t be afraid to be green. Don’t be afraid to pick up garbage (and get some change back), or buy the funny looking CFL bulbs, skip a shower, get magazines on loan from the library or pour cat litter on your driveway. If someone looks at you funny, just say “Hey, this is saving me money!”
