Being eco-friendly means living and not using anything that is harmful to nature or the environment. Governments worldwide are increasingly focusing on using eco-friendly ways in any project. Climate change is forcing 200 million people to migrate yearly to other locations. This also disturbs the global supply chain, demand and supplies. Governments are shutting down the smoke-emitting industries or moving them away from the population, discontinuing the smoke-emitting vehicles, treating the water before disposing of it, banning deforestation, and many other steps toward an eco-friendly environment. There are many DIY ways to make your home eco-friendly. Some people might think that doing so may reduce the look of their home, but we will make sure that your home looks luxurious and also eco-friendly at the same time. We have listed some of the ways below:
Turn unwanted things off:
Energy is the main thing all over the world, and some places face an energy crisis. More energy consumption means more energy is needed to produce. Various methods produce energy. The key from the user end is to keep the unwanted appliances off. This will not only give a relief to the production but also will reduce your bills. Want to move a step further than just turning it off? Nowadays, automated electric appliances automatically turn off if they are not in use. We should install motion detector lights so that when there is no one in the room, it turns off.
Hence we are discussing electric appliances, making sure the electric appliances are energy efficient. The older appliances may be closer to your heart but are hurting your budget. They consume more electricity. They are not energy efficient. LED lights to use less electricity and last more than conventional light. Especially the radiators that we use in our homes should be replaced with the latest horizontal radiators white coloured because they are using less energy and white colour can be adjustable in any interior.
Recycle as much as possible:
This may sound ridiculous, but the recycling thing is a new trend. This also gives a unique and creative look to your walls, gardens or other places. You should reuse the plastic and glass stuff. You can use your wine bottles and decorate them. Plant some money plants in them and place them in your kitchen window. Use your car tyres as a swing for the kids or pair them up to have a sitting in your garden. You can also paint the old tyres in different colours and place them in your garden to decorate your garden. Plastic bottles of different colours can also be used as mini planters and mounted them on your outer walls.
If you can not recycle the stuff, then you should simply reduce the use of plastic because this has greatly damaged our aquatic creatures, blocking the water canals and damaging the fertility of the land. After all, plastic is not decomposable naturally.
Use the windows:
Having beautiful windows adds a luxurious look to the house and living rooms. This also lets a great amount of sunlight come and illuminate the whole house. You are using the premium look and saving the artificial light. This is also good for your health because sunlight kills the harmful bacteria that are often produced on our curtains, beddings and carpets. It would be great if you used the double glazed or the triple glazed window to reduce the heat loss. This will help you in winter to keep the house heated. There should be a good amount of windows in the house to keep it ventilated and full of light.
Have a nice sitting place in the outdoor area. You can place a simple dining table there or some chairs where you can enjoy the sunbath, and rain and spend some nice time with family.
We should use every inch of the house very smartly. So, why leave the roof of your house useless? Install the solar panels on them to make your energy. This may be a problem in winters but make sure you keep them clean in winters and do not let snow freeze on them forever. You should buy a battery that can store the power generated by solar panels. Use that power when there is no sunlight.
Indoor plants at the corners of the room or the windows add a beautifully premium look to your house, and this is a very nice way to keep the home green. This maintains the indoor temperature and oxygen level also some indoor plants produce oxygen at the night; some plants maintain the air moisture level. So, using some indoor plants in your home is highly recommended for a healthy and eco-friendly environment. This will help to reduce the skin dryness in winters
