Household Savings Calculator

By now, most people know that switching to energy efficient light bulbs (CFLs), turning off the lights when we leave a room, and switching to Energy Star rated appliances can help save money on household costs, but sometimes a little personal knowledge can be a motivating factor to push us towards making life even greener.

For example, did you know that according to a 2005 University of Chicago study, the average American diet adds over 3,500 pounds of heat-trapping pollutants to the atmosphere every year? Or that half of the water that we spray on our gardens typically goes to waste due to over watering and evaporation?

Visit and check out the "Household Savings Calculator." By answering just a few questions about your life, you can find easy ways to save money and save the planet, all without leaving the house.

The video below also offers some great tips on how to go green in your home.
