Green Living and a healthy home are important things that we deal with today. Why go green? From an efficiency and a sustainability standpoint it is just common sense and courtesy. Waste Not Want Not right? When you use things efficiently, you save money, and when you reuse and recycle you are preserving resources for future generations. Remember, we are just borrowing the planet from our descendants, so wouldn't it be wise to leave something for them?
From country living to living lightly on the earth no matter where you live, self sufficient and green living just makes good sense. For frugal folks, living green is something we did before it was popular. Being self sufficient is another way of saying "Do it yourself," another thing frugal folks are good at.
Sustainable green living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and his/her own resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity's symbiotic relationship with the Earth's natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological green living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development.
