Change out your lighting

Notes:

  • Did you know that the type of lighting you have in your home could not only be harming the environment but also costing you more money than it needs to?
  • Incandescent light bulbs are not a good choice as they not only waste too much energy by producing heat, but they also emit carbon dioxide.
  • LED bulbs, on the other hand, use much less energy so switching to LED would be a greener solution. It may be worth looking into different lighting to see which would be best for your home.

Use recycling bins

Notes:

  • Recycling is a great way to help the environment as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which is a factor towards helping climate change. When waste is put into landfill, it releases greenhouse gases into the environment, so the less waste that ends up there, the better.
  • Lots of things can be recycled these days too including paper, plastics, aluminum and glass. If you can’t recycle with your waste collection, look into the recycling options in your area and do your bit.

Check your windows

Notes:

  • If your windows are in need of being replaced, make sure to look at your options.  While double pane windows tend to be the standard, triple pane is a better choice for those living in cold climates.
  • Not only will it keep heat inside your house – lowering your energy bills – but it will keep noise out too. When it comes to choosing a frame, wood is the more eco-friendly option, but do ensure the frame is properly manufactured to avoid problems with mold or damp.
  • Fiberglass is another good option as it requires less energy to make than the more traditional materials like vinyl.

Switch to environmentally friendly cleaning products

Notes:

  • Our waterways can only take so much more damage before they become permanently polluted and we instantly regret the years of abuse.  One of the main causes of this pollution is toxic cleaning products.
  • Many supermarket products contain harsh chemicals that all end up going down the drain. Not only are they bad for the environment, but they’re bad for your kids too.
  • Eco cleaning products don’t harm aquatic life, and they won’t lead to allergies or irritations in children either.
  • QUESTION?

    There are so many ways to reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment, not just in the house but outside of it too. Try using a few of these tips in your home.

  • Plus, the more you practice being eco-friendly, the more those around you will follow suit. It’s time to make a change for a better tomorrow.
