Environmentalism and sustainability are the buzzwords of the day, but how do they relate to your life? Believe it or not, there are tons of benefits to making the choice to go green. Below we’ll discuss the financial, wellness and innovative benefits of deciding to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
You’ll Encourage Innovation
Taking the greener path means funding companies that design and market green products. The more of your consumer dollars you funnel toward them, the more inventive and Earth-saving ideas they’ll come up with.
You’ll Be Healthier
Cutting out toxic products from your home not only helps the environment … it helps you as well. If, for instance, you choose to work with an eco-friendly cleaning company such as Mopfrog of The Hamptons, you may notice you’re nose and eyes are less irritated, you have fewer allergies and you get fewer headaches from noxious or scented chemicals.
You’ll Save Money
Believe it or not, going green can actually help you save money in the long run. Consider CFL bulbs, which are better for the environment. Although they cost more upfront, in the long run they cut down substantially on your energy bill. Plus, since they last so long, you don’t have to replace them nearly as soon as a traditional light bulb. The same goes for green water heaters and solar panels, which are rapidly becoming affordable to the average consumer and after the up-front expense, can really save money.
You’ll Look Cool
All right, so you’re not a teenager any longer. But everyone still wants to look cool, right? Well, going green has become the new high heel or cigarette … and these days it’s so much more glamorous than wearing the right clothes or ruining your lungs.
So don’t be afraid to adopt those eco-friendly measures you’ve been curious about. They’ll make your life better, and help future generations at the same time.
