It’s one of society’s most pervasive myths that going green at home costs lots of money. While adopting sustainable habits often requires some initial outlay, the infographic below suggests several simple ways you can make your home eco-friendlier and save yourself some serious coin in the process. It’s a win for your planet and your finances!

Buying new LED light bulbs might cost more at the supermarket, but you’ll soon recoup your investment. LEDs use 75 less power than compact fluorescent bulbs, so you’ll soon see a dramatic drop in your power bills. They also last 25 times longer, so you won’t need to rush back to the grocery store. Smart programmable thermostats are another smart home addition. Heating and cooling accounts for nearly half of the average home’s energy use. Reduce your home’s temp by 7 to 10 degrees for at least eight hours per day to save 10 percent on your power bills.

Other simple, money-saving sustainable ideas include scrubbing your house with homemade cleaners using common pantry items and installing water-saving aerators on faucets and showers. Some ideas require no financial outlay at all. For example, using your dishwasher and washing machine when you have enough for a full load maximizes your appliances’ efficiency. Take the ideas in this infographic as a starting point and run with them. The more you make small eco-friendly changes and see the savings, the more you’ll want to incorporate new sustainable ideas into your home.
