Going Green: The Most Cost Effective Way To Live In This World

Jan 9th 2014 at 3:05 AM

The entire world is going green in a big way as more and more people realize the benefits of living an Eco friendly life. However, Eco friendly products are not gaining the kind of popularity that one would expect, and the reason behind this is that many people have the misconception that Eco friendly products are more expensive compared to regular items. However, if you consider the long term impact of these Eco friendly items, the opposite is actually true. In order to understand the cost effectiveness of green products let us look at some examples.

The first example that we can take is of low power consuming electrical and electronic appliances. It is true that often things like low power consuming light fixtures and appliances are priced a little more than regular products. However, if you look at the overall picture, you will realize that these products save you much more money than the extra little you pay for them. Fixtures and appliances that consume less power will save you a lot of money on your monthly electricity bills and hence they prove to be a cost effective way of living.

Another example is that of products that have been packaged in an Eco friendly manner. While we may not really pay attention to such things, but the cost of packaging is extracted from the customer buying the product and hence if a lot of packaging material has been used in packing the product, ultimately the customer will be paying for it. On the other hand, products that are packaged in an Eco friendly manner use the minimum amount of packaging material, and this in turn, reduces the cost that customers have to bear. Hence this is another cost effective way of going green.

Apart from this there are many products that actually save you money for a little bit of investment. For instance, water filtering pitchers eliminate the requirement of bottled water. At the same time, Eco friendly toilet cleaner and cosmetic products are usually hypoallergenic, which saves you from having to spend money on treatment for the problems that arise due to the use of non Eco friendly products. Hence although these products cost a little more than regular items, they save you a lot of money in the long run. This proves that going green is indeed a cost effective way of living in this world. We all should make the little effort necessary to use eco friendly products in our daily life because as a result, we will not just save the planet, but also a good amount of money.
