Earth Day: Recycle/Resell Gadgets


Earth day is right around the corner, and while it may be difficult at times to find new ways to be environmentally friendly on a budget; doing so can save you a ton of money. To get you started, here are 3 ways you can go green and see even more green in your wallet.

2. Go Solar
Though many may disagree, solar panels can bring a little futuristic edge to your home. Many companies will install these solar panels free of charge, but it's important that you read through the terms and conditions so that you know exactly what it is that you're giving up to get them. Once their installed, you can sit back and allow Mother Nature to help you rake in the savings. As you use less and less electricity, and more of the sun's natural and free energy, you'll notice a huge difference in your next electricity bill.
