Creating an eco-friendly home can start small, with just a few easy changes to your house, decor or lifestyle throughout the year. As you save money, you can move into bigger changes to save even more. Below you will find a few ways to save the planet and save your wallet! (click to expand)
LIGHTING AND ACCESSORIES
Bulbs: Replace incandescent light bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs). You can save 66% more energy and 400lbs of greenhouse gas emissions if you trade in 1 incandescent light bulb for 1 CFL bulb.
Open the Blinds: 10% of energy can be saved on heating when you open the blinds during the day to let the sunlight in.
Rugs: Using rugs on wooden floors can save 4% – 6% on energy bills.
Extension leads: By using multi-socket extension leads and turning it off when not in use, you can reduce you home’s energy consumption by up to 15%.
Grow Houseplants: Be literally green and improve the air quality in your bedroom. Snake plants give out oxygen at night (perfect for a bedroom or bathroom) and golden pathos can filter air and stay green when kept in darker spots of the home (with low to moderate watering).
Sleep on organic sheets: Cotton linens account for 25% of the world’s insecticide use. Switch to organic cotton or sustainable bamboo instead.
Wool, not Polyester: If you have a choice between wool and polyester blankets, go for wool – it’s more eco-friendly to produce.
