Good morning, everybody!

Today, I’ll continue my talk about green lifestyles. While green living has surely brought numerous benefits khổng lồ both people & the environment, there are also some disadvantages including: time, limited options and, most importantly, cost.

While many practices related lớn going green are designed khổng lồ save money, green living can be quite expensive. For example, energy efficient appliances are designed to lớn use less electricity, but they often come with a high price tag. Secondly, time can also be a big problem. Nowadays, more & more people are trying lớn adopt budget-friendly ways to have a green lifestyle. However, they still have to lớn face the fact that growing their own food takes time as they are not professional farmers. For instance, if you want lớn grow an organic cabbage, you will have to lớn spend on average one month more than the three months’ time spent on a conventional cabbage. For those reasons, green products are usually more expensive and the investors need khổng lồ wait longer to lớn get their investment back.

The limitation of options can also be an obstacle. Although today there are more opportunities for manufacturers lớn go green and compete in a không tính phí market, for example, there are still not enough green alternatives for this. There are limitations in colours, materials, & fabrics.

However, I strongly believe that there is no reason why we should not join the green movement. Though there are some limitations, the benefits khổng lồ people’s health and the environment will be much more considerable.
