My original concept of the "Latte Factor" -- the idea that all the little things we spend money on over the course of the day really add up -- has evolved into the "Litter Factor", the idea that wasting money and hurting the planet go hand in hand.

For example, if you buy a water bottle every day for a year, you’re spending about $500 on water. Cutting out this little habit will not only save you a lot of money, but you’re also saving the planet tons of trash. Or, have a "veggie night" once a week and save on your grocery bill. Make it a habit, and you’ll save over $300 a year.

What are some ways that you can save money by going green?
