They say that money doesn't grow on trees. Yet, money is made of paper from trees, right? So how do we balance the "push and pull" relationship that Americans find themselves in nowadays? We want healthy, nutritious food, but most can't afford it and resort to their $.99 Whoppers and Big Macs. We want clean water, but most can't afford a Brita. We want clean streets, yet again, most are not educated about recycling practices. Quite a conundrum for such a wealthy nation. And while our experts are devising new strategies and crafting new technologies, there are simple applications and habits that we can adopt TODAY. The notion of eco-nomics! When times are tough, you go into save and conserve mode.

And some of the simple acts of being a good student of the eco-nomic philosophy includes:
1) Being a frugal foodie (buy local, shop at Farmers Markets)
2) Invest in Green
3) Keep a thrifty home - one man's junk is another man's treasure
4) Drive more efficiently and carpool
5) Live a less is more lifestyle

Consume Less. Conserve More. GoSustaino!
