Can going Green make you rich?

March 25th, 2008 at 01:44 pm

A worthy question. I read a lot of personal finance books, so I was intrigued when I ran across this article by David Bach (of Rich Couples Finish Rich fame). He has written a new book about how going green can make you rich and this article is a rundown of the ways you can save or make money by being more environmentally aware.

It's interesting that such a high-profile writer is taking on this topic. Of course, some of the suggestions are things us eco-geeks have been doing for years, like freecycling and donating used goods, but it may be worth a read anyway.

    Wish he had mentioned composting kitchen and paper waste, even natural fabrics. That makes your soil rich.

    Funny, I just decided to "invest" in a composter. I'm looking forward to using it. And who knows, maybe it'll save me $5 a year on mulch!

    Like my rain barrels (which we love, by the way) it was an eco-emotional decision, not a financial one...

    Eco geeks?? Some of us frugal geeks were raised that way in the 60s and 70s! I still remember the lady next door in the 60s, using her laundry water to water her garden.

    I know, huh? I feel like we've lost something as a society over the years. For instance, hanging our laundry out to dry. It's a money saver, it's good the environment, and people used to do it all the time. But now it's associated with being poor or low rent. Most homeowners associations will fine you for having a laundry line in your back yard!
    My own neighbor raised a fuss about mine last summer, saying it was bringing down the neighborhood. Of course, no one could see it from the street...

    We're all punks compared to what was happening during WWII. Big Grin
