Why sustainable living is the way of the future…
When we talk about sustainable living we mean recovering, recycling, retrofitting and basically just thinking about the environmental impacts of our actions and lifestyle.
We are also talking about installing solar power, lighter coloured roofs, taking advantage of rainwater, upgrading light bulbs, and using energy-efficient appliances.
That all sounds a little daunting but done gradually over time you will begin making an impact.
Unfortunately, we live in a world of over-usage and a “throw-away” mentality…thankfully this is beginning to change.
It is time to push the envelope and start making an impact…one lightbulb at a time!
Many are put off by the costs involved, so they do nothing at all however, if you invest in it now you will see many benefits in the future.
It is also said that sustainability in homes can rise the value of the home at the time of selling.
Thinking about our direct and in-direct environmental impacts now will mean we leave a better world for our children!
