Gallery: Infographic Compares Acting Green Vs Buying Green Products


Green products enable us to live healthier, more efficient lifestyles – but even if you’ve upgraded every light bulb and appliance in your house to the most environmentally-friendly model, you can still eek out even more efficiency by adopting greener habits. For example, you use the same amount of water with a low-flow shower head in a 15 minute shower, as a 9 minute shower with a regular shower head. If you also limited the amount of your shower in combination with a low-flow fixture, you are saving a ton! Check out eLocal‘s infographic on Acting Green vs. Buying Green after the break for more ways to lower your carbon footprint by living a greener lifestyle.

    The infographic really is helpful because it presents a good distinction. I’m sure we can buy and act green at the same time, but this infographic shows the difference of two separate actions. Cheers, great stuff!
