There can be many reasons to want to go green. Not only can living a greener lifestyle be great for the environment, but it can also save you money, and allow you to live a happier and healthier life as well. However, many may not know exactly how to go about living a more environmentally friendly life, and may struggle to get started. The good news is, though, that there are many simple tweaks, as well as bigger changes that you can make that can allow you to live in a way that is more environmentally friendly today.


Try Energy Saving Appliances

One simple way to start living a greener life is to purchase energy saving appliances, if you are in the market for new ones. These kinds of appliances are great because they typically use less energy, and less water as well. Because of this, you can end up saving significantly on your utility bills over time. Beyond that, these appliances may have a longer lifespan than some others, which can mean less money spent on replacing these items as well. While energy saving appliances may seem more expensive upfront, the reality is that over time they can help you save a significant amount of money, and make up for any cost difference.


Try Solar Power

Another way to go green and save money is to try a solar power system or solar power. This can be a great way to support the environment, and free yourself from dependence on electricity as well. When you have solar power installed, you will rely primarily on energy from the sun to keep your home running, and then use standard electricity for back up when you need it. This can also protect you in the event that there is a power outage. While others are without power, you will be largely unaffected with solar power. Additionally, while it may seem expensive initially to get it installed and to switch to a new kind of power altogether, the reality is that it can be much more affordable in the long run, as you will have significantly lower energy bills, or no energy bills at all.


Try Recycling

Along with switching to new kinds of energy usage, taking recycling seriously can be another great option. While many may recycle cans or bottles, getting more serious about your recycling, and making sure that you recycle everything that you can can make a big difference for the environment. When you recycle, you are helping to reduce the amount of garbage that clutters landfills, and are also helping to reduce the amount of raw materials that get used up to create new products as well. This can mean saving energy, and less pollution, like greenhouse gasses, as well. Even though it may seem like a small thing to do, picking up this one habit can make a difference for the environment.


Try Minimalism

A new lifestyle trend that goes hand in hand with protecting the environment is minimalism. Minimalism is a way of living where you use and own as little as possible. This means that you don't make unnecessary purchases, and that you try to purchase only the things that you absolutely need. When you live this way, you will tend to produce less waste. Whenever you make a purchase, whether it is something like electronics or clothing, it tends to come with some kind of packaging. The fewer purchases you make, the less packaging you will be dealing with and the less waste you will produce. Ultimately, this means less waste in landfills and less pollution overall.


Try Buying Local

Another way to help the environment is to try buying local. This can be helpful to the environment because when you buy locally, those items have to travel less to get to you. This means less fuel and other resources were used, and that less pollution was created in the process of getting that item to you. Another added benefit of buying local is that you are helping to support local businesses, and stimulate your local economy as well.


Try Getting More Use 

Yet another lifestyle change you can make is learning to get more use out of the things that you already own. For example, instead of throwing something away when it is broken and buying a new item to replace it, you can learn to fix it and get more use out of it, instead. This will result in less waste, and can give you the opportunity to learn new skills at the same time. Beyond that, you can also learn to repurpose old items and give them new life, too. One way to do that is to take old clothing, blankets or towels and then turn them into cleaning rags, for example. This kind of repurposing can not only save you money and protect the environment, but it can also be a creative experience as well. Depending on the kinds of things that you are repurposing, you can turn it into an exciting craft project, and take advantage of an opportunity to do something creative while saving money and helping the environment, too.


Try a New Diet

While going vegan may not be for everyone, eating less meat from time to time can be great for the environment. Processing meat can take a lot of resources, and can be a big contributor to greenhouse gas. When you eat less meat, you are taking a lot of stress off of the environment, and you are also providing yourself with the opportunity to try new cuisine, and maybe even improve your health as well. By cutting meat out of your diet from time to time, you can try out new dishes, and you may even discover new foods that you didn't know you would enjoy.


Try Doing It Yourself

Along with trying a new diet, learning to grow your own food can be a great way to help the environment as well. When you buy produce from a store, there is fuel involved in getting it to you, which can impact the environment. When you grow your own garden and use your own produce, though, less pollution and waste is involved. Beyond that, when you have your own garden you can can and preserve your own food, which can be another way to avoid purchasing any unnecessary cans or packaging, and can save you money, as well.


The Bottom Line

Going green can be a good idea for many reasons, from protecting the environment to saving yourself some money. While some may think that it is a complicated process, the reality is that there are many simple things you can do to get started today.
