Here at Low Impact Living, we’re always trying to give you The Low Down on saving money while going green. Now, if you put our advice into practice, you might even win some Home Depot prizes!
All you need is a video camera. Shoot a short video about the eco-friendly changes you’re making in your home to save money, then enter it into Home Depot’s “Save Money. Save Energy. Win Big” YouTube contest for a chance to win a $5,000 Home Depot gift card and up to $2,000 for installed insulation or radiant barrier products from The Home Depot.
Need some ideas to get your creative juices flowing? Our list of great green projects is a great place to start. We’ve got instructions on everything from greening your bedroom to installing a solar water heater to taking advantage of rebates and tax breaks for green home improvement.
For the most bang for your buck, find out how you can spend just $100 on green upgrades — to save $500! Did you know that programmable thermostats cost just $50 and take only 15 minutes to install — to yield close to $100 in energy bill savings every year?
