From another story I wrote here’s another tip:

Saving Money In the garden

In the end, this is probably the best place to go if you wish to become truly sustainable. Living in a house and owning a backyard is one of the best-case scenarios in today’s real estate industry. If you’re already lucky enough to have a backyard, you need to use that privilege.

With so many people getting into sustainable gardening, it’s no surprise that this movement is constantly getting stronger. Composting is eliminating dangerous chemicals (that cost) and mulching. For there are just some of the ideas you could explore.


We know the Green Living Guy wants you all to recycle and also be saving money. One stat was we don’t recycle 67 Million of the 267 Million tons of plastic annually. Yet recycling will help keep plastic costs down. Again saving money. In Europe, the bounty for plastics is $.25.  Whereas in the USA it’s only $.05. So there’s a disconnect. This is about saving money.


New York City residents currently recycle only about 17% of their total waste–half of what they could be recycling under the current program. 7.5% of our waste stream consists of plastic film such as supermarket bags. Clothing and textiles make up 5.7% of our waste.

Introducing these changes won’t take too much of your time and energy. You’ll be able to experience lasting effects that will make your life better than ever. So start small and you’ll reach complete sustainability in no time at all!
