Living off the Grid is more than changing a light bulb.

by Katy Green

Sometimes I think maybe I could live off the grid and be my own source of energy, edible produce and water! Then I wake up from my green daydream and realize that my earth friendly endeavor will require a major change. 

Living off the grid may be too much change for me but I'm proud that I follow a energy conservation plan similar to my article on Quick Energy SavingsTips and the no Paper Cups Policy and I send out green friendly invites for events

Should You Live off the Grid?
Living off the grid will benefit you in numerous ways beyond the cash savings and the earth friendly commitment.  The way you view things and the way you live daily will change for the better but it requires a life changing commitment that you may or may not be ready to tackle.
