Does it really work financially to go green?

Better question yet: Are you actually losing money by not going green at your home or place of business? 

There is so much conflicting information out there, that those two questions deserve more than a "yes" or "no" answer.

Remember that a home or building of any sort can be energy-efficient without ever being "green." However, a home or building can not be green without first being energy-efficient.

Frugal Energy writes, "You are losing money by not being energy-efficient–yesterday you lost money, today you are losing money, and every day thereafter you will lose money until you are energy efficient in every possible way."

Yes, you are losing money by not installing renewable energy. You are actually renting your electricity from an utility company. So you are losing money there, too–just throwing it down the drain.. .

Are you losing money if you buy more green products than fewer green products?

Possibly that answer is "it depends." At times it is more expensive to go green (such as eating organic foods (see green food) and at times it is less expensive to go green such as when eating a predominantly plant-based diet.

Health and green seem to go together, however. You will almost surely lose health by not being green. 

And you will lose respect from some of your friends, coworkers, and relatives–to say nothing of your children when they are old enough to think about, and then remember, your actions in the early part of the 21st Century.
