//Simple Ways to Save the Planet and Your Cash

Pop quiz! What do Planet Earth and your money have in common?

Answer: They’re both important resources that you need to save!

The Earth provides essential elements for your survival such as water and air. Like the cash in your wallet, you have to use them wisely if you want them to last.

The good news is that you can actually build your wealth by protecting the planet. Use the following tips to save some green by going green.

Refill for free
Discarded plastic often ends up in our rivers, lakes and oceans. It causes massive amounts of litter and harms the animals that eat it.

What can you do to help? Carry a refillable water bottle instead of always buying plastic ones at the store. The Earth—and your wallet—will thank you.

Take a transportation vacation
Driving is convenient, but it comes at a price to you and the environment. The cost of gas, registration and insurance adds up, and car exhaust pollutes the air.

If it’s unrealistic to ditch your car permanently, try taking a break from it. Ride your bike, use public transportation or walk instead. After a month or two, you may be surprised at how much money you saved.

Reduce use
Water gives life and is required for food to grow. In other words, it’s kind of a big deal.

To use less water, limit your showers to five minutes and turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth. You’ll help keep the H2O flowing while reducing your family’s water bill.
