FACT: Each year, in the United States alone, we discard and send 1.6 BILLION plastic disposable pens to landfills. Take a look at what that number actually looks like: 1,600,000,000
Mind-boggling, isn’t it? And it is believed that most components of those pens will never biodegrade either… (and the image just got uglier, didn’t it?)
The better solution? Invest in a refillable pen. The refills are no more expensive than disposable pens and the waste they produce is substantially less.
The pen may be “mightier than the sword,” but the refillable pen is “mighty green”.

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.

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"!
