There are a million different reasons to green in 2015. Whether you are interested in saving the planet or just joining the trend, any reason is a great reason to go green! We've all heard about wind and solar power but now there are a multitude of smaller projects you can start with that will certainly push your home in a greener direction. 

One of the greatest living costs we incur nowadays is electricity so going green can also benefit our wallets. If you live somewhere where the weather doesn't allow you to live without the air conditioner then this one is for you. Try installing friction-fit windows for better insulation. These windows can also help reduce outside noise. 

Another way to go green without a total overhaul of your home is to simply replace your appliances. You can now purchase refrigerators, washers and dryers, microwaves, stoves, and more that are all energy efficient. Some of these appliances can reduce energy usage as much as 20%.
