You might think that going green is just about helping the planet. But actually, it could help you too and greatly improve your life.
One of the obvious ways going green could help is through saving money.
By using less energy, you’ll also be spending less money on your bills which is fantastic. It certainly makes life easier when you’re trying to raise a family. To save money on your bills, you can start by switching on the heating a little less through the year. Instead, wrap up warm through winter and maybe buy some thicker curtains. If you do this, we’re sure there will be no need for those expensive fuel bills.
Here are few other ways going green could improve your life.
Since becoming a parent I have often thought about baby girl’s future. How can we create a Bright Future for our children? We have been set a challenge by Unilever called #brightFuture to discover little things as a family we can do to change the future for the better.
At the heart of the Unilever brightFuture initiative is the goal to unite communities and encourage small changes in everyday life that have a positive impact on the world.
Here are some of our little things we have changed to help make our world a better place and to shape a bright future:
- Turning the tap off when brushing teeth
- Re-using boxes and bottles/jars
- Composting fruit and veg peelings
- Turning the TV off and not leaving it on standby
- Remembering to turn off lights when leaving a room
- Meal Planning, so we don’t buy food to waste.
- Only use reusable bags
