Going Green is an authoritative, useful guide that details the money-saving side of greener, healthier, and simpler living. Bestselling author of It's Easy Being Green and nationally recognized sustainable-living expert Crissy Trask has written a prescriptive guide to making better decisions about our homes, how we get around, how we eat, and how we behave as consumers, in order to simultaneously achieve two desirable and imperative goals--to be better off financially and to do what is good for the planet.
The book includes numerous steps that will yield immediate results, as well as explanations of bigger commitments that take time to implement, but also produce bigger net savings. With her practical money-saving strategies and environmental know-how, Trask empowers readers to confidently pursue change, knowing their bank accounts will grow as a result. Going Green shows how a typical family can easily save up to $10,000 in the first year and up to $48,000 over a ten-year period--not including investment of that money--just by greening up some key areas of their home and lives.
