Tips For Making Your Home More Environmentally Friendly

 

For many of us, taking care of the environment is a real priority in our lives as we try to minimize the negative impact we make on the planet. Whether it’s a concern over climate change, the desire to leave the world a better place than we found it (or at least not worse) or simply the opportunity to save a few bucks on gas and electricity bills, there’s plenty of reasons to go green!

There are also lots of ways to do this, and the best place to start is from home. We spend a lot of time in our homes and usually focus on our own comfort, which can be at the expense of the environment. Some examples include, leaving lights or electronic devices turned on when not in use, or using more water and heating than we probably should.

Below are some tips on how you can make your home more environmentally friendly without sacrificing your own comfort:

Use solar lighting

During the day, the sun lights up your garden and it doesn’t require any electricity or batteries to power it. So why not continue that same method when the sun goes down? The best kind of lighting solutions you could use in your backyard are available as solar-powered options, with both decorative and security motion lighting available. You can make your garden more attractive and more secure and it doesn’t cost the planet. At Christmas time, you can also buy solar-powered decorations for the outside of your home to add a green touch to your festivities.

Food and drink storage

So much of the damage being done to the environment is caused by food waste and packaging. It all comes wrapped in plastic and cardboard, and buying bottles of water is one of the worst things you can do if you are trying to be environmentally friendly. Instead, why not buy a water bottle that you can re-use as often as you’d like? And when it comes to food, homemade meals and storage boxes that cut down on waste, are the way forward.

Keep an eye on the bills

Of course, during the winter months you need to keep your home at a safe and comfortable temperature, but sometimes it can be tempting to turn on the central heating and then forget about it until you realize how hot it is. By that stage, your bills have skyrocketed and the planet is worse off. Invest in a proper LCD thermostat that allows you to take control of your heating, cut down on your bills and make your home more environmentally friendly.
