Green To Save Money
Going green to save money is one of the smartest things you can do. It is like killing two birds with one stone (without the harming of innocent animals of course). But the metaphor of taking care of two things with one action.
Being green to save money not only helps the environment but also helps your pocket book.
Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of advertisements and things on TV about going green. I really hope that it’s not just a fad or trend that people are hopping on.
I hope people are actually concerned about keeping the earth alive for our generations to experience for many generations to come. The very open and vast park, that I take my children to, is so full of wildlife, huge redwood trees, and just smells so great after a night of raining. I want my children’s children, and their children to get to experience the same thing. I would roll over in my grave if that natural habitat were ever destroyed or god forbid, a mall or parking lot built over it
Going green to save money not only helps the environment, but also helps our health. With so much pollution being excreted into the earth’s atmosphere, it’s hard to imagine how much toxins we are breathing in everyday from cars, factories, energy companies, and manufacturers.
Wouldn’t you want your children to be able to breathe clean, fresh air, without having to wear an oxygen mask? I certainly would want them to have the freedoms I’ve had.
I pledge that I’m going green to save money, not just as a fad, or because I think it’s hip or cool –but because it will help save the earth and the environment.
That’s why I built my own solar panels in my backyard so that I can reap the benefits the sun has to offer and no longer be shackled to the local energy company.
What’s best is the freedom that I have to not have to be dependent on a large corporation for my electricity. I even have a vegetable garden in my backyard and decomposer so I can do my part in helping the environment.
It wasn’t very difficult for me to build the solar panels. I had a lot of spare time and it actually was a very fun project I could do with the kids. Of course, I’d have to make sure they don’t get themselves hurt so I had a close eye on them. They were like my little helpers, carrying things for me and trying to figure out things.
Before I show you how I did it, check out this video that gave me inspiration. It’s from a guy who kind of sounds like Albert Einstein and he used broken silicon panels that were discarded by manufacturers. Sometimes when manufacturers built these silicon panels, they may break in the process, but the funny thing is that they still draw power.
