So, you’ve made the move to your new home with the help of Essex Removals and you’ve settled in. However, you want to try and make a difference to the environment and improve the way you live. Making your home more eco-friendly is a great way to do your bit for the world; here are a few ideas on how to achieve that.
A striking way to make your home more eco-friendly is to install a green roof on your property. These types of roofing solutions protect your home with a living, breathing roof covered in vegetation. As well as being beautiful to look at, these roofs offer great insulation, improve air quality, help remove CO2 from the atmosphere and stem urban flooding by soaking up rainwater.
By installing a solar panel, you can totally reduce your reliance on fossil fuel based power, which will help to drastically reduce your carbon footprint. By generating all of your power from the sun, you’ll save a huge amount of money on bills once the installation has been paid for and can even sell excess energy back to the grid!
Waste is a huge problem when it comes to the environment. Landfill sites are slowly poisoning the earth and plastics can take hundreds of years to eventually decompose, which is why more and more people are trying to reduce the amount of waste that they produce. This can be done by shopping at zero-waste shops and bringing your own containers, swapping your plastic bottles for glass or metal ones and being more thoughtful on the products that you buy.
Growing your own food is another fantastic way to help reduce your waste as you’ll use far less plastic than you may have by shopping at the supermarket. As well as tasting much better, homegrown veg is healthier and sustainable. To help get your patch going, why not make your own compost from your organic waste bin?
