There are many reasons for going green but the two most obvious are Environmental and economical.

You don’t have to be a dyed in the wool greenie to experience the advantages of going green and it will not make you a hypocrite if you are a climate change skeptic going green.

Going green simply means using the earth’s natural resources to power your home and car or taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint on the Earth.

Farmers, manufacturers, businesses, governments, institutions and more can all do many things to reduce their carbon footprint on the Earth.

Even if you are a climate change skeptic going green has many other advantages other than saving the environment and reversing Ozone layer depletion.

What going green means to you regardless of your stance are advantages being economic, social and to some extent changing your immediate environment to be more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.


Think about everything you do each day and how it affects you, the environment and people both far and near, get a clear perception of how not only being conscious of your energy needs but how the world will be a better place to live if you live your life in a more sustainable way.

Make it your Mantra and decide today right now to be a greener living citizen and keep it that way. You will benefit in the long and short term.


So now you know you have to go green what are the advantages for you?

1. Saving money!

Everyone wants to pay less for fuel to drive their car, Electricity to power their household appliances both for entertainment and work, heating and cooling etc.

By using more energy efficient appliances you can reduce your monthly electricity bill, by keeping your car running well, keeping it serviced, tires pumped to the correct pressure, driving smoothly and less erratically you will save money through filling your car up less often.

You will still have to pay the same amount at the pump but you will have to fill up less often. Use the Earth’s natural resources to power your home.

Although there may be an initial outlay sooner or later you will have made your money back and eventually be paying far less or even nothing, think of the big picture rather than what is in front of you.

Minor changes to your lifestyle can even save you money such as sharing your car with other people to get to work (car pooling).

Planning your shopping so you only need to go to the supermarket once a fortnight and offer to take your neighbor and in return your neighbor will take you.

You have just reduced your cars fuel consumption from six trips a fortnight to the shops to one trip a fortnight!

Governments and councils are slowly introducing taxes and fees to pay for green infrastructure such as solar and wind farms but you can take advantage of government rebates to offset these charges.

2. Saving the Environment.

Living in the city you are used to the view being obscured by smog but things are gradually turning around.

Our cars put out less poisonous fumes and use less petrol but by adjusting your driving patterns you can reduce these even further.

Using less power means burning less fossil fuel such as coal.

The creation of Electricity through burning coal is incredibly inefficient and releases thousands of tons of Co2 into the Atmosphere.

Carbon released into the Atmosphere is supposed to be responsible for much of today’s climate change.

Heating your home with firewood while still releasing Co2 into the Atmosphere is far more efficient than heating with electricity.

On a daily basis we hear news of catastrophic events, Tsunamis, Wild storms, flooding etc, going green means gradually changing the Earth back to a more stable planet, one where we can live safely now and the generations ahead of us.

3. Self satisfaction.

Saving money and the Environment will give you a feeling of achievement and success.

Your positive thinking will catch on to your neighbors, workmates and family so soon we will all be going green.

4. More water.

Are you living in a state of drought?

Much of the earth is and it is likely that your local water authorities have a restriction on how much water you can use.

By going green you commit yourself to using less water but this can be an advantage in that you need to spend less time watering your garden through planting drought resistant varieties.

If we change the way we live hopefully normal rain patterns will return bringing us more water.
