Green Living at Home: 6 Eco-Friendly Tips for Homeowners


Creating a more eco-friendly and sustainable home is a commendable goal that can benefit not only your overall well-being but also – in the long run – our planet.

Here are some quick and easy tips to help homeowners embrace a green living lifestyle:

1. Switch To Energy Efficient Lightbulbs 

Why not start by switching your normal light bulbs to energy-efficient LED ones? It’s also important you turn off lights when they’re not needed. This will help to lower your electricity bills and carbon dioxide emissions.

2. Recycling and Waste Reduction

Start with a simple goal! Aim to reduce your single-use plastics by using reusable containers, bags, and water bottles. Get a couple of tote bags for your weekly shop and invest in a reusable water bottle and home water filter.

3. Sustainable Landscaping

Create your very own small vegetable patch or herb garden to grow your own produce, reducing the need for store-bought items which often come with a lot of plastic waste.

4. Water Conservation

Start by fixing any leaks in faucets, pipes, or toilets promptly to save water and reduce water bills. You can also install low-flow shower heads and faucets to decrease water usage during showers and daily tasks. Another great tip is to collect rainwater for watering plants.

5. Natural Cleaning and Personal Care

Using eco-friendly and biodegradable cleaning products that are safe for the environment and your health is another great way to be more eco-conscious at home. We suggest opting for natural personal care products without harmful chemicals and microbeads that can harm waterways and experimenting with plastic-free options to what works for you. Companies like SMOL and Bower Collective make eco-friendly products that don’t break the bank.

6. Have One Meat-Free Day A Week

We’ve all heard that following a vegan diet can help lower our carbon footprint! But being vegan isn’t a choice everyone wants to make, so we recommend experimenting with some plant-based recipes once or twice a week.
