How do you feel about saving money and become more Eco-Friendly at the same time?

By now I'm sure you've all seen hundreds of headlines about climate changes, increasing sea levels,
Carbon Dioxide (CO2 ) emissions, and so on.

These headlines might leave some of you worried, some of you might not believe what the scientists are saying, and some of you might think along the lines of, "There's nothing I can do about it, this is too big for me to have the slightest impact."

But there is actually a lot you can do to help make our planet a healthier and better place to live, and most of the things you can do don't require a lot of effort either.

I'll start by looking at Electricity Consumption. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), only about 11% of world marketed energy consumption is from renewable energy sources.

Meaning that by reducing the amount of electricity you use, you can make a big difference - both to your wallet and to the planet

In fact, if you follow these 5 simple steps, you can make your home more green and save some money at the same time. You probably won't even notice the changes too much, but if a lot of people implement them into their daily lives, it can make a huge impact.

Let's get to it!

Rainforest - River and pond

I have always loved nature, and spent my early childhood running around the forests that surrounded my parents' house, swimming in and paddling on the lake, climbing small cliffs, and checking up on the neighbor's calves. And a FYI: calves and cows are such cool animals!

Growing up in such an environment was a true blessing, and it also made me appreciate all the little things that you can only find out in the unspoilt nature. A serenity and calmness that no human-made park in the world can copy.

10 Things To Consider When Moving To Another Country

If you don't like where you are, change it
Many people dream of moving to another country, even to another continent, yet for most this will only stay a dream. Leaving your daily routines, everyone you love and all those things you are so familiar with can be quite intimating.

But trust me, moving to another country can be one of the most exiting experiences of your life. You'll met new people, see new places, battle bureaucracy and stacks of paper, learn to love a new culture and maybe even a new language.

Even though some will give up and move back to their home countries, others will completely fall in love with their new environments and never look back. If you don't reach for your dreams they will never come true.

I've taken the leap before, and I'm currently considering moving to Spain. So I wanted to share some of my experience with you.
