If you try to live your life in an environmentally sound way, it's going to cost more. Right?
Well, maybe not! Check out this infographic comparing a typical lifestyle to an environmentally-conscious one. True, in some categories the green lifestyle may be slightly higher, but overall, the number show you might end up saving money and helping the environment!
I find that most frugal activities save money and help the planet as well. Frugal folks will reuse things instead of throwing them out. They'll buy used instead of new. And they'll only buy something when they absolutely need them. True, some environmental choices are not the frugal choices - organic food is more expensive than conventionally-grown items, for instance. But often, the green choice and the frugal choice are the same.
