HOUSES

The simple things we can do at home and work to conserve and protect our habitat will improve our quality of life. Most actions to sustain our environment involve better management of natural resources and waste – saving us money at the same time – without compromising our standard of living or comfort

Effective waste and recycling, gardening, green cleaning, reducing water use, heating and lighting our homes more efficiently, and choosing products that use resources more effectively – all helps save money in the short and long terms, as well as the environment around us.

We can all make changes in our day-to-day lives to help reduce our environmental impact. For instance we can recycle, use eco bags for our shopping or take public transport over driving.

These small changes add up quickly to make a huge difference, but if you want to further reduce your environmental impact (and help save money in the long run), it might be time to consider making the following ‘green-friendly’ changes at your home:

  • Install ceiling insulation.
  • Buy a solar hot water system.
  • Replace incandescent lights with compact fluorescent ones which use one quarter of the energy.
  • Use grey water on gardens.
  • Plant trees around your home to help provide shade.
  • Plant an edible garden.
  • Compost kitchen scraps.
  • Install solar panels.
  • Consider using motion sensor lights outside.
  • Choose household appliances with high energy and/or water efficiency ratings.

There are of course many more ways to be more environmentally friendly in your home, but anything that helps to reduce waste or energy and water consumption is a good place to start.
