Eco-friendly ways to make money during a recession

The current recession has taught us to save every dollar we get, but actions speak louder than words. In many situations, jobs aren't recession proof, and making extra money may be what you have to do to survive and make ends meet.

Sell your unwanted stuff. One of the easiest ways to make money during a recession is selling items that you don't need. You can sell your unwanted items on Ebay, yard sales, and consignment stores. If you have a hard time selling your items, consider bartering them. You can list your items or services for barter on one of the following web sites Itex.com, Craigslist.com, SwapThing.com, and BarterBucks.com.

Find unwanted treasure. Many people put their unwanted items next to the curb in front of their home or business. Most of these items are usually in good shape and can be sold at flea markets or on Ebay.

Recycle. Recycling is a great way to make money during a recession. All those old soda cans you've been saving for years will finally pay off. You can sell scrap metal too. The price of scrap metal is pretty high, and you'll get top dollar for it.

Recycling isn't limited to soda cans and scrap metal. You can recycle clothes and other items in your home. You can recycle clothes by using their fabric to make blankets or quilts. You can then sell the blankets or quilts. You can recycle your household items like doors, tile, and bath tubs by donating it to Habitat for Humanity (and receive at tax write-off) or sell the items at a yard sale.

Shop at thrift stores. Buying used items and selling them is another way to make money during a recession. This only works if you buy items that are worth selling..

Use your garden. If you have a garden, you can turn it into a profit. Consider selling your fruits and vegetables and sell to your family and friends. This is a great way to give back to the planet while making money in the process. If you don't have a garden, consider growing one. You can also donate your excess fruit and vegetables to a local food bank and receive a tax write-off
