It's safe to say that recycling plays a significant role in most of our lives, and is very rewarding when we consider the ecological impact we collectively produce by our efforts to recycle, reduce, and reuse. But, what if I told you that "going green" could be financially rewarding as well?
The following are some easy ways to make a little "green" for yourself, just for doing the little things you already do to lessen your ecological footprint.
Like Money in the Bank In some states, RecycleBank.com is changing the way we take out the trash. This company takes the recyclables you already wheel out to the curb each week, and pays you for it by the pound – depositing points into a "bank account" redeemable for products and services in your area. The Recycle Bank takes paper, plastic, glass, phone books, cardboard, and cans.
Music to Your Ears iPods and other mp3 players have turned CD collections into dust collectors. Instead of piling them up in your closet, check outFeedYourPlayer.com. This innovative company allows you to trade in your CDs and DVDs for items like flat-screen TVs and digital cameras at a major discount. Think how happy your children will be when you trade in your old CDs and DVDs for a new PlayStation®.
Dial "S" for Savings Do you have a drawer full of old, out-of-date cell phones you don't use anymore? Well, GreenPhone.com wants to buy them from you! That's right, as long as your old phone still works, you could get anywhere from $1 to $70 for it. GreenPhone, in turn, sells the cell phones to people all around the world who can actually use them. Plus, you can also earn commissions for any referrals you provide. And, for every phone that GreenPhone buys, they plant trees through partnerships with American Forests and Sustainable Harvest. Electronic Deposit Similar to Greenphone,MyBoneYard.com takes your working flat panel TVs, laptops, and computers, erases all of your personal information, and then donates them to women's shelters, senior citizens, schools – or sells them to companies worldwide that can use them. What an e-volved concept!
Who said recycling doesn't pay off? Take advantage of these great companies and help the environment at the same time. If you know of any other green companies or websites that I should add to this list, please email give me a call at 678-648-5626! I'd love to hear how you're making recycling pay off for you and your family.
