4 areas that going green will help!



The green economy could create 24 million new jobs according to the United Nations Sustainable Development Council. From green construction, to solar farm development, electric vehicles and more, there will be millions of new, high paying available jobs.


Cost Savings

A significant economic benefit of going green is that it helps lower costs and save money. The use of renewable energy helps reduce energy consumption, which in turn helps save money spent on electricity bills (which is a benefit to the individual). Going green at home helps reduce water and power bills significantly.


Lower Taxes

More and more national, state and local governments are incentivizing the move towards going green by providing tax breaks and other incentives. We have compiled a list of links for the U.S. and will be adding more for international benefits in the near future.


Healthier Foods
