6 Easy Solutions To Make Your Home Eco-friendly
In our daily activities, we take actions that in one way or another impact the environment. From washing clothes, cooking, cleaning to being in the office, there’s a lot more we can do to live more sustainably and have a positive impact on the environment. In the end, we will leave this world a better place than we found it. You can adopt these 6 ways of being eco-friendly in your everyday life.
USE LED LIGHT
Not only do LED light bulbs last longer than conventional bulbs, but they’re also far more efficient too! This means that you’ll be using less power and having to replace your light bulbs less frequently – everyone’s a winner. What’s more, they’re available in a range of brightness and designs so you can really tailor the lighting to your needs or to suit the room.
OPT FOR GLASS
Glass storage jars look more elegant and don’t harm our beautiful environment.
TRY TO CUT OUT PLASTIC
Plastic seems to have found its way into every single aspect of our lives. However, giving it up isn’t as difficult as you might think – for example, use silicone lids instead of plastic bags to preserve your food. These silicone lids fit overall different shapes of containers so you don’t have to transfer your leftovers to a different dish. They also help to keep the food fresh for longer.
CHOOSE BAMBOO MATERIALS
Bamboo is a sustainable material. Bamboo is a fast-growing and renewable tree-like grass. It needs little maintenance to farm as it doesn’t need any pesticides to grow. That’s why bamboo products are better for your health.
GET REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES
This green item may change the way you drink water or other beverages for good. Most of the folks we heard from say that once they started using a reusable water bottle, they found themselves taking the bottle everywhere, and drinking more water as a result. Good for you and good for the environment! Well, at least you’ll get a discount at the local coffeshop.
DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH PLANTS
Potted plants are effective for indoor air cleaning. Not only that, they are also nice and they make your home more welcoming. Sure, it takes a bit of responsibility to take care of plants but it’s surely worth it.
