Your house can be greener with these simple tips!

1. No more Dryer

During sunny and hot months, it’s almost a shame to not line-dry your clothes outside. There is something special about line-drying in the fresh air. But not only that, your clothes and bedding will last longer if you hang them outside on a drying rack instead of drying them in the dryer. You don’t have to worry if you don’t have a backyard as you can install a drying rack on your balcony and keep the windows open to allow the sun to dry your clothes faster.

2. DIY

Why buy new when you can get creative and involve your family in a fun weekend project? You can find many DIY guides online to help you completely transform your home.

3. LED Bulbs are here to stay

Investing in the right energy-efficient light bulbs makes a huge difference. You will not only use less electricity, but you will also make your home more environmentally friendly. Not bad, right? LED bulbs are definitely the better alternative. They last longer, are eco-friendly and help you save money in the long run.

4. Use a Programmable Thermostat

Get green by installing a programmable thermostat to monitor your cooling and heating systems. A thermostat can reduce the cost of your utility bill and make your home more eco-friendly at the same time.

Recycling is key!

5. Say hello to your new friends: Recycling Bin and Compost Bin

If you own a recycle bin, you’ll be more conscious about recycling glass bottles, jars, paper, and other items that should be recycled.

A compost bin will help you get rid of leftovers and will give you free fertilizer you can use for your plants. These days, compost bins are designed to be neat, tidy, and odor-free. Plus, they make your life easier since they help you reduce household waste.
