Richmond Hill, ON (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
Buying expensive eco-friendly products have just become cheaper as online coupon website, Shopaneer.com, launches "green" category featuring coupons for environmentally friendly products and stores. "Everyone wants to do their part to help save the environment, whether it is buying a human-powered lawnmower, solar panels for their house, electric powered car, or other recycled and eco-friendly products. The only problem is that buying these products can be expensive," said Shopaneer owner Scott Rezka. "Our new "green" category will help alleviate some of these costs as well as allow stores to promote their eco-friendly products."
Along with the launch of the "green" category, Shopaneer has put together a list of ways to save money while purchasing environmentally friendly products.
The easiest way to save money is to use online coupons for your eco-friendly products. What is easier than clicking a link and saving 10% off? Online coupons also have the extra benefit of not wasting any paper.
Buy in Bulk
Another way to simultaneously save money and go green is to buy items that you use often in bulk. These items may include food, drinks, and cleaning products. There are many benefits to buying in bulk as you are purchasing the same items you would regularly buy for less, the items last longer, and you reduce waste as there is less packaging.
If you are buying larger items, such as a push lawnmower or solar panels, your best bet to save money is to shop around. Check your local newspaper for flyers and price check online to find the best deal. Do a search for price comparison and you will find hundreds of websites. All you need to do is type the name of the product and these sites will help you find the lowest price. Often, you can get stores to match or beat their competitor's prices simply by asking.
Eco Tax Credits
Certain eco-friendly products qualify for a tax credit. There are tax credits available for buying efficient cars and solar energy systems. You can receive 30% of cost, up to $2000 credit for installing a solar energy system. The tax credit for purchasing an efficient car can be up to $3400.
