8 Going Green Tips to Help the Earth and Save You Money

July 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 186

Conserving natural resources, the environment and saving energy and reducing pollution are all a major part of the going green movement. Here are some tips about what we can all do to help.


Recycle plastic bottles and aluminum cans. They say that a hard plastic bottle buried in a landfill can last for over a thousand years! However, I don't think that anybody has tried it yet. Recycle newspapers, plastics and glass too. Please do it for the environment.

Check your tire pressure

Keep your tire pressure at it's recommended pressure. Having your tire pressure at the correct psi can reduce wear on the tires and significantly increase your gas mileage.

Conserve your radiant energy

Replace your regular light bulbs with the energy star type. Compact fluorescent bulbs last longer and use less energy regular light bulbs and LED light bulbs are even better. Keep a frugal eye on your heater, air conditioner, and electric stove usage and turn off all appliances and lights when not in use.

Your computer

Configure your computer to hibernate, sleep or turn off after it is left alone for a while, unless it is a server. Your computer will last longer too. Turn off your power strips or use smart power strips.


Wash a full loads of clothes in cold water. Save the hot water for oily or excessively soiled clothing. Switching your temperature setting from hot to warm may cut a load's energy use in half. If you are washing a small load, use the lower water level setting.Use your own judgement to make frugal choices.

Your motor vehicle

Keep your motor vehicle in excellent running condition with regular tune ups, filter changes, etcetera. This will save fuel and save you money in the long run too.

Run your car with water

This is for real! Have an HHO system installed in your motor vehicle. The engine doesn't actually burn the water, but it breaks it into hydrogen and oxygen (HHO gas), mixes it with gasoline-air mixture in the carburator and burns that. You will get better performance, stronger acceleration, and best of all, you will save money because you will get better mileage. An HHO system uses the electrical system of the vehicle to break down water into a highly explosive mixture of hydrogen and oxygen then feeds the mixture of gasses into the air intake of the engine. It reduces emissions because when the HHO gas burns it turns back into only water and heat. You will still need gasoline, but not nearly as much.

Renewable energy

Install a renewable energy system such as a wind turbine or a solar power system for your home or business. It will pay for itself many times over.

Coming soon: fuel free electric generators

There have been several patents recently for magnetic energy driven motor/generators. They can run nonstop for years with no fuel by using the magnetic fields of permanent magnets to spin the motor and drive the generator. The Howard Johnson motor, the Perendev motor and many others rely on this principle. Some designs have the motor and generator combined into one compact device. The rotoverter and John Searle's motor/generator are good examples. Similar devices are already available for purchase in some countries such as Australia, China and Japan. However, they are expensive and the supply is very limited at this time.
