There are various ways and means by which you can save energy. By using these simple tips and techniques you can save money together with saving our environment.

There are many examples of how going green saves you money. Kermit the Frog was wrong - it IS easy being green, and it saves you money at the same time. As our Earth faces a period of Global Warming where our greedy actions are believed to be the prime cause, it makes sense to seek out examples of how going green saves you money and act on them.

That cell phone charger that stays plugged in, the DVD player that waits for the occasional playing, and the TV that sits on standby all night, these are prime examples of how going green saves you money - if you unplug them, that is. For even if the items are not working, they are consuming energy! Meaning, even when all these devices are switched off (not the main power point), they still consume about 10% of energy in this what is called as the Standby Mode. Imagine what is 10% of your total Power Bill. It can easily save you over $100-$200 each year.

Another of the prime examples of how going green saves you money is switching from bottled water to filtered tap water. The average family spends about $2,000 a year on bottled water. And the worst part is that 95% of the plastic bottles are not
recycled! For less than $100 you could get a high quality staged water filter to make your tap water perfect. Imagine the harm you do when those plastic bottles are thrown all around the city or town. Indirectly,even the bottled water manufacturing plant will be polluting the atmosphere for processing the water. Imagine the harm this does to the Marine Life in the process.

Examples of how going green saves you money are everywhere around you. You just need to see them. Do you drive as fast as the law allows? You shouldn't. Car engines perform most efficiently at around 55-60 miles an hour. If you combine that with
gentle driving on properly inflated tires, you will save $100s and help save the planet too.

You could always use a bicycle to travel around town. Or you could simply walk for those short trips. You won't be pouring hydrocarbons into the atmosphere, warming the planet. You will save money, and you will get some good exercise at the same
time. Walking and cycling when you can are excellent examples of how going green saves you money and at the same time saves the Planet.

Some 75 million newspapers are printed every day in the US alone. Some 75% of them will not be recycled. What a waste of trees! You can do your bit to help, and read whatever news you want to read at the same time simply by going online. Today,
all major News Agency have their own Website giving the same upto date news and videos. So, go Online and save some money and read from the web.
