Think you can’t afford to live a much more sustainable lifestyle? That’s not uncommon, and certainly many more sustainable consumer products cost more. But an awful lot of “green” choices cost little or nothing… and when you add them all together, you’re actually saving money.
That’s the point this infographic tries to make, anyway. While you might argue with some of the assumptions it makes (i.e. is a “first car” necessarily a part of hitting college age? Or an SUV of any kind a natural choice for a young adult? ), it’s a good starting point for a more detailed discussion on the costs and opportunities of making greener lifestyle choices.
