“One of the most important things we can do to protect our environment is to find ways to reduce waste and move towards a more waste-free lifestyle. Little changes such as switching to cloth bags instead of plastic ones or making a concerted effort to recycle cans and bottles can make a big difference in your waste output.”
Have you ever thought about ways to reduce waste in your home and how it can save money at the same time? We started coming up with ways after my hubby came home from Costco (one of the only places he enjoys shopping) with a lovely package of rechargeable batteries:
Although we don’t really use that many battery powered gadgets (we prefer items that recharge with a cord and we avoid electronic toys like the plague), we do still need them from time to time.
I’ve just never really thought about it enough to bother with spending the money on rechargeable (because they do cost significantly more upfront), although after having them for a couple of months now, I can already see how much $ we will be saving as well.
