Save Your Planet—and Your Wallet

Going green doesn’t mean spending big bucks on organic food, solar panels, and hybrid cars. At its core, green living is simply about moderation, efficiency, and—believe it or not—living less expensively. Shift Your Habit shows you how to make easy changes to your lifestyle that will do the most to benefit your budget and the planet.
 
Included are hundreds of habit-shifting suggestions to leave you with thousands of dollars you would otherwise never see again. These are tiny modifications that any family can make . . . and some already have. You’ll meet fifteen families who can testify to just how simple shifting can be and how much money can be saved.
 
Shift Your Habit pinpoints small tweaks that can lead to huge personal and planetary rewards, such as:
 
• Switch to an ultra-low-flow showerhead—save $135 a year
• Pack waste-free school lunches—save $200 per child a year
• Reduce your driving speed by 5 m.p.h.—save $900 a year
• So far, Shifter Families have saved almost $100,000, nearly 500,000 gallons of water, and more than 15 tons of waste
 
Every shift counts, and with numbers like these, it’s easy to see just how much.
