An Eco-friendly home gives back more than a greener environment. Eco-friendly alternatives are a way of living and help us keep our environment clean & green. Here are some quick & simple steps that you can begin right at home for a cost-effective eco-living.

Buy Recycled: Always look for sustainable harvested options when it comes to investing in a furniture. Use a recycled furniture rather than buying a new one as much as possible… you are doing a lot by saving trees!

Save Energy: Energy efficient light bulbs last longer & use less energy. LED lights are better for the environment than incandescent bulbs as they can lower electricity bill & last for more than 10 years.

Insulate Windows: Insulating windows can be a good option to make your home more energy efficient. It is easy to insulate your windows and keep home warm all through year round. Thermal or light-blocking window treatments can also help reduce energy from getting wasted by blocking sunlight.

Install a skylight: A skylight provides natural sunlight and helps you save on electricity. Skylights are a tube that brings natural light from the sun, through a series of reflective surfaces in a tube, and into a building’s interior. So during daytime, your home is naturally lit and imagine the amount of money and energy one can save through this! Skylights are a better and greener way to bring in natural light into your home.

Avoid VOC: Use natural paints for home. Most wall paints contain Volatile Organic Compounds – VOC that are harmful to the environment & one’s health.  Use ‘Eco paints’ on home interiors like plant based & water borne paints. Water based paints contain low or minimal VOC. Also avoid ordering more paint than you need. After you use the paint, recyle the paint tins in your garden.

Replace: Replace paper towels with cloth towels or pieces of clothes that you have not used in a while. This way, you get to wash them and reuse again instead of a fresh new towel every time.

Compost kitchen scrapsThere are a million ways to grow your own nutritious produce and one such easy way is to reuse your kitchen waste! Place a compost bin in your garden and fill it with food waste.

Cook Smart: Prepare your ingredients and then switch on the gas stove.  Do not open your oven door many times to check on the food. Make sure you know your cooking time. And, don’t open your refrigerator door without knowing what you intend to take out.
