Making Your Home Eco-Friendly

Embracing new practices for a sustainable environment and changing those lifestyle habits that are slowly killing the planet can go a long way to in reducing our carbon impact on the environment.

Going green doesn’t have to mean you need to make costly investments like solar panels, non-toxic paints or sustainable wood flooring. All it takes is making small changes in your day-to-day activities to make your home a healthier and greener place. As builders who promote eco-friendly living, below are a list of things you have to do which will help the environment,

Use CFL lamps & LED lighting

Energy efficient CFL lamps and LED bulbs use just a quarter of the electricity than regular bulbs. Not only do they help you save up on your electricity bills, they also last 10 times longer too.

Turn off those lights

Switch of the lights when there is enough sunlight outside. Move your window curtains and let the sunlight enter your room. Installing automated timers can be another way to save energy for lights that are frequent left to blaze in empty rooms.

Grow plants

Grow some indoor plants that require less maintenance. They bring the temperature down, they keep the air fresh and purified. Research shows that if you grow plants like Aloe Vera it could bring down the temperature in your home by as much as 10 degrees!

Get unplugged

Electric appliances like TVs, DVD players and computers use much energy in standby mode. So when not in use, make sure to turn them off to preserve energy.

Conserve water

Make sure to check your bathroom for leaks, close your pipes tight enough to avoid leak by drops. Install inexpensive water-saving shower heads to check the water flow. Also make sure to turn off the water while brushing or scrubbing your hands, before it’s time to rinse.

Go paperless at home

Even there are many way that digital growth given us to reduce usage of paper and protect our files, many homes still can be seen with lot papers flying inside it. Go green and get organized by opting to online payments. With some patience, you can stack up your important files digitally.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reduce your requirement for buying new products that are harmful to the environment. Buy reusable over disposable items. Find items that can be reused, such as glass jars and metal packaging.  Adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle using recycled materials such as recycled glass, recycled tiles and recycled plastic.
