Making your home eco-friendlier is something we all want to do. You may be under the impression that it can be time consuming and expensive, but our top tips are cost effective and super easy!
Request online letters rather than physical ones –
The amount of mail we all get through our letter boxes can be extreme at times and is just an obvious waste of paper. To reduce waste why not discuss with your regular mail companies the idea of having an online newsletter or statement sent to you via email.
Switch Cleaning Products –
Many cleaning products can have chemicals in that are harmful to the environment. Instead of buying your usual products, look around for those with an eco-friendly label. They are better for the environment and will not cost any more than usual.
Reduce excessive electricity use –
One of the easiest ways to make your home greener is to make sure you are not using more electricity than you need. This includes leaving appliances on standby when they can simply be turned off. You should also not leave lights on in a room that is not being occupied. Not only can this make your home greener, but it will also help you save money in the long run.
Replace your bulbs –
Changing from normal bulbs to eco ones can dramatically increase the greenness of your home. Even though they may take longer to brighten up they can last for a considerable amount longer meaning you are not replacing bulbs every couple of months.
