3 SUSTAINABLE TIPS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Monday, 18 September 2017


I think it's safe to say that global warming is not just a fluke or a fictional story but it's actually happening. It's not a huge shock that we're witnessing climate change, at least it shouldn't be. Personally, I didn't think it would happen so soon but at this point, we can't ignore the facts!

Some may think that sustainability is just a trend but the reality is, we hit an era in humanity where we are depleting our natural resources. That's the reason sustainability is being talked about. Our planet can no longer produce a “free for all”, we must consider protecting our home.  Secondly, sustainability isn’t just benefiting “the world”; it’s also contributing to a better environment for the health and wellness of yourself and your family (think about your loving, cuddling pets too). 

So I've put together 3 major sustainable tips that we can collectively implement that will ultimately impact our lives! 

     1)   CHANGE YOUR LIGHT BULBS FOR LEDs!
Why?

Well… LEDs are not limited to a certain temperature (warm or cool). {**If you need a quick lighting 101 - CLICK HERE **} You can either choose a soft light or daylight. LEDs have longer lifetime duration and use up to 80% less energy than your traditional light bulbs. Additionally, you have the luxury of dimmable options which works well for that candlelight dinner or that middle of the night bathroom trip.


LEDs are just energy efficient and offer you the best quality of light! It doesn’t get better than this!

     2)   INSTALL A DUAL FLUSH


Why?

A dual flush allows for a lower volume flush while leaving you with better results than your traditional flush. Not only this saves your household an estimated 4 thousand gallons of water annually but also saves you on these high water bills! Surprisingly, it’s very affordable to install. A HydroRight Drop-In Dual Flush Converter can be purchased on Amazon or your local hardware store. It can vary anywhere from $20 - $100+.

PS. A Dual flush also helps push out your solid waste so you’ll have less clogged toilets to worry about.


     3)   AIR FILTER + HOUSE PLANTS
 Why?
I found this amazing infographic by Emma Loewe that explained this part extremely well!

These tips are just three ways that can help stimulate wellness in your home. Plus you will save a lot on your electricity and water bill on a long-term basis. Don't only may these changes for the environment but make them for yourself!!!
