It Ain't Easy Being Green
updated: Apr 16, 2011, 10:15 AM
With Earth Day coming up, I am wondering if you can help me with a problem. Because I live in such an environmentally conscious town, I felt compelled to sell my old car and buy a hybrid. Well, it wasn't in my budget, so now I'm pretty much broke, but I really care how I am perceived, and I want to make the statement that I care about the environment.
The trouble is; one thing leads to another when it comes to lifestyle issues, and the cost of organic food on an ongoing basis is going to seriously impact my attempts to save money, get out of debt, and buy a house. Let's face it, environmentalism is very expensive and not all of us can afford it. What do you suggest?
