Definently. I don't spend so much money on disposable things and our electric bill has gone down! Sometimes I do buy the more expensive greener option, but in the long run, the product tends to last much longer than the cheap going to break down so you have to buy another.
I feel like I have also gotten healthier too. When I started buying local, I wasn't eating so much microwaved pre packaged food and I was acutally cooking! Today my husband and I made fish for the first time and it was so much tastier than what we usually buy in resturaunts.
I don't know, I think it might cancel itself out, but I'd like to think we save money? We pay a lot more for groceries and personal products that are local and organic so that adds a few hundred a month but we also save a lot by making our own cleaning products, making food from scratch instead of processed foods, using cloth diapers when we have a baby in the house, using cloth in the kitchen instead of paper towels, using energy star appliances and a whole house fan instead of A/C to name a few ways we save. I think it's a toss up, but I definitely love saving money and relish in the areas that we do.
