Seventh Generation and Trader Joe's green dishwashing products

I know, I know, you're hearing about the green movement everywhere, and it's even more prevalent now that the gas prices have risen sky-high. You want to do your part, but sometimes it's hard to know where to begin.

You want to start where it will do the most good and save you the most money, right? Green Home has put together a table that can help you figure out the best ways for you to go green.

I'm concerned about gasoline right now, as I drive a (smallish) SUV -- my next car is a hybrid, I promise! I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I could save over $2000.00 over the next five years if I just drive more slowly (under 60 m.p.h). Tell that to my lead foot, then join me after the break for more green money-saving tips.

Some other tips from Green Home that surprised me:
  • Waterless car wash exists, is cheap, and saves about 100 gallons of water with each washing.
  • Taking your bike rack off your car when you aren't using it can save you about $30 a year.
  • Don't forget to clean the lint trap in your dryer. That dryer fuzz is costing you about $34 a year.
