How To Keep Your Home Eco-Friendly

How To Keep Your Home Eco-Friendly

Keeping your home environmentally friendly is an important task, but it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it sounds. Alongside decreasing your impact on the world around you, a sustainable home can also save you money. It’s a win-win!

However, having an eco-friendly property means much more than simply doing your recycling. You can make some additional changes to guarantee your home is making a minimal impact. Here are some top suggestions:

  • Fixing water leaks ASAP – Research from Water UK has shown that the average UK resident uses 142 litres of water per day! So, sealing any water leaks is a must to ensure you’re limiting any water wastage
  • Insulate your water pipes – If tap water takes longer to heat up, we often leave it running for longer. Using insulated pipes means you can get hot water faster without leaving the tap running.
  • Switch to energy-saving light bulbs – LED energy-saving light bulbs might be a bit more expensive, but they’re very energy-efficient and can last up to 25 years.
