Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably well familiar with the slogan “go green” – but what is living green really all about? Living green is all about sustainable living, a lifestyle choice that incorporates several different environmentally friendly practices to deliver a powerful punch against pollution and other environmentally destructive practices.
Reducing Energy Usage
One of the key practices of sustainable living involves making changes to your habits, as well as physical changes to your home to limit the amount of energy you use and to decrease your carbon emissions. You can do this by using energy sparingly, like turning off lights when they’re not in use and limiting your use of home cooling and heating systems, and by installing energy-efficient appliances in your home. This also extends to your transportation habits – if you really want to live green, limit the use of your car by moving closer to work or by taking public transportation.

Those committed to green living search for natural products, but sometimes don’t realize these materials can save money, too. Fortunately, you can commit to living in an environmentally friendly universe and keep your monthly budget under control.
Natural Products and Safety
Most natural products, along with contributing to sustainable living, are also very safe for all living things. Certainly, the safety of our fragile environment is critical to our continued survival as a species.
However, safety for ourselves, our families, our pets, and all living things is just as important. Imagine if natural products were environmentally friendly, but toxic to humans? Our environmental awareness quotient would drop dramatically.
