Going green in your home doesn't have to be as difficult as it sounds. Neither should it be as expensive as most people think.
When it comes to the general Go-Green mentality, the reduce-reuse-recycle mantra is often skewed towards the latter – forgetting the important equally important action: ‘reduce'.
Each home can actively work on easing their carbon footprints with simple steps that cannot and should not be under-estimated.
Most of them require a simple form of ‘reduce'.
What you can do is to start with simple changes like swapping your household cleaners for greener ones by checking the list of ingredients.
You should also consider switching up your meals – an example being, having Meatless Mondays- which in essence has the same impact as driving a hybrid car.
Another useful tip would include making changes with your insulation in order to prevent energy leaks. For an on-a-budget solution, consider using thermal shades.
And about what you don't need anymore, try to donate instead of dumping it. Consider the thrift shop across the road or the charity you saw in your neighbourhood the other day – they definitely need any extra donations they can get.
In the kitchen, consider getting safe pots and pans and in general, don't forget to reduce or eliminate the use of fragranced aerosols in the house.
