There are lots of little things we can do in our homes to reduce our energy footprint. Check out our top 10 eco-friendly lifestyle changes you can do today!
While large steps like having solar system home or hybrid car certainly promise to make a huge difference in the world, there are other more accessible ways you can reduce your carbon footprint.
Here are some small, easy, green choices we can make in our homes.
1. Switch to LED bulbs
Get more lighting that lasts and waste less energy by switching your light bulbs to LEDs.
2. Getting a new car?
Why not purchase a more energy efficient car or electric vehicle? Use more clean energy, and less fossil fuels.
3. Hold a clothes swap
Have more fun with your friends or work bussies by hosting a clothes swap. Store less clothing you don’t need and get a “new” wardrobe all at once.
4. Buy things that last
Enjoy more quality and create less rubbish by buying goods that are made to last. Wish - I'm looking at you!
5. Encourage your team to commute together
Promote a healthier workforce with staff by car-pooling or walk, run, bike, bus or scoot to work!
6. Install a more eﬃcient showerhead
Save more water and use less power by choosing an efficient shower head or ﬂow restrictor.
7. Share car trips
Make school drop offs fun and spend more time with friends by ride-sharing to class, sports and other activities.
8. Start a veggie garden
Get in the sunshine and create less carbon by growing your own veggies. It’s great to get outdoors and the kids will love it!
9. Video conference more
Spend more time doing and less time travelling by video conferencing instead of ﬂying.
10. Buy consciously
Support responsible businesses by choosing sustainable products and services. Check the label or ask a customer service representative if you’re not sure. It's the little things that can make the biggest change!
