Okay, this has nothing whatsoever to do with being green … and hold the cheers, because yes, it’s my birthday, but it’s one of those crappy milestones that I choose not to acknowledge in my own head!
And you want to know what I got? An email from AARP!!! What? … What the HELL, actually!
Okay, I admit that I’m not ‘green’ from lack of years and experience, and I’m only green from a choice of environmental consciousness and healthy living, but come on!!! AARP!?! I still have decades of years ahead of me before I’m a candidate! I think someone got a digit in my birth year wrong!!! I know it can start at 50, but not in THIS decade! Sheesh!
Want to know what I got after that? An email for an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cream… are they serious? Is this really happening?
Augh! Forget the green. Now, I feel blue… and especially wrinkly too. Fabulous.

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet
"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.
There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.
However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.
Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.
When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.
Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!
