Want to green your grocery list while keeping more green in your wallet? Grist lists a few ways to buy eco-cheap:
- Make a list: Buying only what you need keeps costs and waste down.

- Buy organic: Organic food is much better for the environment, and can be cost-effective if you choose carefully.
- Buy green cleaners: Make homemade cleaning liquid out of hot water, vinegar, and baking soda.
- Buy local: Eating locally produced food cuts down on transport emissions.
