It's time for a recession special blog post--how can we help our wallets while saving the planet while making ourselves happier and healthier?
During the No Impact project, we saved--and continue to save--a lot of money on everything from transportation to food. The combination of riding our bikes everywhere and only eating fresh local produce meant we spent less (because we ate less take out and paid for no transport), lost weight and felt better.
What measures do you take that both save you money and reduce your impact on the planet?
