As budgets tighten, homeowners and renters look for cost-effective and "green" ways to run their homes. Fortunately, there are a number of quick, easy and inexpensive changes that everyone can make to not only save money but also help the environment.
"Last year, Americans went through 50 billion plastic water bottles and 38 billion of them were discarded. Living a lifestyle that's healthier for the environment can start with small, easy steps at home. One helpful tip is to avoid plastic water bottles. Instead, fill a reusable bottle with water filtered from a PUR pitcher or faucet mount. By doing this, each person can help reduce their carbon footprint by saving up to 3,200 plastic water bottles from being discarded, and save themselves up to $600 a year," says National Lifestyle and Cleaning expert Tara Aronson.
