Top 10 Eco Friendly Tips For Home

56  comments

top 10 eco friendly tips for homeHome is where the heart is, and the heart is where the family is, so it is very important that when we leave, we have something beautiful to give to our children; a healthy and a happy planet, but sadly what we’ve done to it is far from being healthy and happy. 

To help our planet; we need to stop living a wasteful life, start going green and change our lifestyle for the better, and these 10 eco friendly tips for home will give you a head start in living a greener, healthier life for you and your loved ones.

 

Grow your own vegetables

We all know what happens before those so-called “fresh” fruits and vegetables reach our tables. Sprayed with harmful pesticides and chemicals responsible for polluting the waters they get washed in, these chemical-induced products give our planet more than just a tummy ache. The solution? Grow some in your own backyard! Use an organic fertilizer, lots of sunshine, and a little bit of care, and I guarantee your food would have never tasted better. Yum!

 

Eat a lower amount of meat

But how would eating less meat help in making your home greener? You wouldn’t believe it, but according to a study conducted, more than a quarter of our planet is used to raise farm animals and livestock due to high demand, most of which produce more CO2 than even some of our cars! As we lower the amount of livestock we consume, the demand for such animals will also be lower, allowing lesser people to raise farm animals. Lesser animals, meaning lower CO2 emissions, which means a healthier planet!

 

Switch to LED bulbs

If you haven’t already, it’s always a great idea to switch to more eco-friendly alternatives for your house such as LED bulbs. They consume less energy, lower your electricity bills, and last as long as 10 years, what’s not to love?

 

 

 

 

Start using reusable bags

Ah disposable bags, we use them once, we throw them away, and we simply don’t care who or what gets suffocated to death by accidentally eating one of them. Worth it, right? *sigh*. From now on, start using reusable bags available at almost every supermarket, or even make your own

 

 

 

Recycle your paper

You’re not living under a rock, this is the digital age! Everything is going paperless, so why not you. From now on, start using your smartphone, your laptop, or your tablet for anything you need to write down. And if you simply MUST do everything the hard way, buy recycled paper, you can’t tell the difference! A simple act like this could potentially save thousands of trees.

 

Use your feet

Yes, those things attached to the bottom of your legs do work, and they are used for more than just getting a pedicure. There’s no need to bring out your car every time you want to go to your local store; If it’s within two miles, why not walk or better yet, jog to the place? Not only do you become more eco friendly, but also help you lose those extra pounds you gained from sitting all day at work.

 

 

Start thinking about going green for your energy supply

Although this may not be feasible for many, going green with your energy supply may prove to be very economical for your home as well. A solar panel powered home would not just give you electricity, but if your utility company allows, would also help you make money from the excess electricity generated. There are numerous benefits to power your home using renewable energy, and a small investment today may give you big profits tomorrow.

 

 

Remove as much plastic from your home as you can

Yup we all saw this coming, plastic has been one of the main pollutants of this planet, and regardless of how many campaigns around the world run against plastic products, it’s simply not possible to stop using them completely. In fact, the plastic problem we have is so bad in India (One of the largest populations) that the amount of plastic waste in one day can reach up to 26,000 tonnes, no wonder it has some of the most polluted cities in the world! Start by buying a reusable water bottle for your home. Not only will it save the planet, but also save you good money!

 

 

Check for any water leakage

One of the most effective eco-friendly acts you can do at your home is to regularly check for any water leakages. Water is becoming scarce day by day, and it is important that we make every drop count. Check any running water pipes, faucets or showers for leakages and have them fixed by a professional (or you could even fix them yourself). Water is precious, don’t waste it!

 

 

More house plants!

Adding more plants to your garden and inside your home may serve more purpose than just make your place look prettier. A house plant can be one of the most eco-friendly items you have in your home. Taking in the bad carbon dioxide and spitting out good oxygen, your house plants can actually help you attain a healthier lifestyle, not to mention they look great wherever you put them!
