Sustainability in the Home
Sustainability is a big topic right now, and for homeowners it is often sold as renewable energy that is not accessible to all. Even though renewable energy is great, small efforts in the home can be made that do not put a hole in your pocket. In this article, we will go over some things you can do to be more sustainable at home.
Some of the easiest things you can do that are at no cost to you is to use less energy in general. This can mean keeping the lights off as much as possible, unplugging electronics when you aren't using them, or turning off the AC when it's nice outside. While it may seem simple, this small action is a great way to overall use less energy.
After getting through your cleaning supplies, instead of buying brand new, use some ingredients you may already have to make your own. This can include bathroom cleaning, countertops, and laundry detergent.
While it takes patience, growing your own food can be extremely worth the wait. Using biodegradable materials, you can build a raised bed easily, then plant whatever is in season in your area.
