So you want to reduce your carbon footprint, but you’re not exactly sure about that first step? Good news – you’re probably already green in more ways than you think! Here at Hayneedle, we know that going green is a priority and that committing to it doesn’t have to be time-consuming or pricey. Take a look at our list of five doable tips to update your home and lifestyle for the greener.
Save energy and bring fresh style to your yard, patio, or any indoor room? Brilliant! For your outdoor space, solar lights are a smart way to line a pathway, brighten your garden, or decorate your deck. They simply charge all day in the sun (and on overcast days, too) and then automatically light up, come dusk – all natural!
A bright idea indeed, energy-saving light bulbs last longer than standard bulbs and lower your electrical costs. On that note, ENERGY STAR products, such as the lovely Sea Gull Serenity Bath Vanity, are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and have met criteria that will save energy, money, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
When you’re out and about running errands, it’s amazing how many plastic bags accumulate with your purchases. Keep a functional and stylish tote in your car and take it with you when you shop. These spacious totes, from sleek and simple to bold and patterned, are handy for holding small-to-medium-sized items, or even some groceries.
There you have it – five simple steps you can take to be more mindful of the planet and update your outdoor and indoor space, not to mention your accessories (hello, totes)! Incorporating greener steps into your daily routine can be as easy as pouring a mug of coffee. A cleaner planet and peace of mind are worth it.
