Ed Begley Jr. knows a lot about reducing his environmental footprint.
After buying his first electric car in the 1970s (admittedly it was a golf cart, but you get the idea), Begley Jr. continued to increase his investments in alternative energy, making his home more energy efficient, and moreover, sharing his knowledge with eager audiences across the nation.
We caught up with Begley Jr. at the Forward with Ford conference in Dearborn, Mich., and had the opportunity to ask for his personal advice for Earth911 readers on getting started with the basics of reducing waste. Watch what he had to say above!
Not only does his advice benefit the green scene to which he is so devoted, but also something closer to every American’s heart: their wallet. “Everything I have done for the environment has been good for my bottom line,” he said.
Editor’s Note: Jennifer Berry was invited by Ford to attend the Forward with Ford Conference. Her travel, hotel, meals and experiences were covered by the conference. Neither Jennifer Berry nor any other representative of Earth911 was asked or required to write about the experience.
