If you missed the first part of this series, it’s important to note that green living and protecting the environment is the responsibility of everyone who lives here. With resources becoming less available, cutting down on usage, reducing waste and reusing anything where possible can all lead to a longer lasting green environment. Going green doesn’t have to be expensive, add these three new hacks to the original set and start saving the planet and money today!

Reduce the Amount of Waste Generated from Your Home

Waste accounts for a more significant percentage of both land and water pollutants. With tons of waste generated daily, the number exceeds the recyclable amount. Instead of creating more waste, why not use green-living alternatives for your daily activities? Plastics, for example, are a non-biodegradable waste. No wonder surface waters harbor trillions of plastics every year. To combat this problem, you could opt for tote bags for all your shopping errands in the stead of plastic bags. Also, a durable water bottle is a great option to replace plastic bottled water.

Natural Materials are Just as Beautiful.

New homeowners or old homeowners looking to make a new purchase for their home décor can opt for natural materials. They are just as beautiful! Thanks to the sustainable living movement, natural materials such as terracotta flooring, wooden furniture, marble countertops, etc. are now the go-to interior design choice for most homeowners. What’s more? These materials are less expensive, and they last for an extended period. You would end up saving the environment and a little extra cash for other errands. Go natural!

Plants can Grow Inside Too.

An excellent way to clear the air inside your home is to grow plants such as Boston ferns, palm trees, spider plants, and rubber plants indoors. Plants are natural air filters. They help clear the air while also absorbing harmful pollutants from your electronic equipment, furniture, and carpets. Let the plants come inside!

Going green in your home does not involve putting out tons of dollars or putting up with an outdated lifestyle. A little change in your daily routine has a role or two to play in sustaining the environment. Employ these little green living hacks to help you revamp your home into ‘home green home’ today. Go green, save the planet!
