Just How Big Is Your Eco Footprint?
It could be a lot larger than you realise, depending on your lifestyle habits. For instance, you might be one of those homeowners who constantly leaves the lights on in different rooms around the property. If that’s the case, you’ll be wasting a lot in electricity. The good news is that you can cut back on your electric spending by switching off the lights, saving you a lot of money! Here are a few other ways you can shrink your eco footprint.
Turn Off The Taps
Keeping your eco footprint small isn’t just about reducing electricity usage. You also want to think about how much water you’re using on a daily basis. By cutting down your water usage even a little you can reduce the pressure on water supplies. A simple first step would be to not run the tap when you’re brushing your teeth.
You might have heard the buzz around renewable power. Now, it’s possible to set up renewable energy sources in your home. Specifically, we’re thinking about solar power. With solar panels, you can easily heat and light your home for next to nothing when the sun is out. How great is that. Since the energy is completely renewable, you also won’t be doing any damage to the environment.
We all recycle a little but you’ll probably find that you could be recycling a lot more when you think about it. For instance, we bet you recycle cans, cardboard and paper, but what about tech? You probably just throw away any old tech or dump it in a landfill. Really, you should be recycling and that’s easy to do. Just check out the infographic below for some great advice.
