Focus your dollars on energy efficicinecy, water conservation and green materials. Always go for the low hanging fruit. Window coverings, weather stripping, low flow facet aerators, and efficient furnace filters cost little and save a lot of money.
I found a new handout from San Mateo County RecycleWorks that is an excellent green guide for DIY-ers. Click here to download.
Please take some time to read the content.
I hope you enjoy reading the materials and descide to implement a few.
Live healthy, live happy.
