What can I do to make my home greener?

There are many ways you can make your home greener. And though your actions start at home, they shouldn’t stop there. Here are some of the things you can do:

  • As our communities grow, so does our need for energy and water. Cutting consumption at home helps you and your neighbour, and saves precious natural resources.
  • Simple upgrades, like switching to a low carbon energy provider, will save energy and money.
  • Lighten up! Make the most of natural light, replace your bulbs with LEDs and switch lights off when you go out.
  • Stay cool. Save energy by using ceiling fans, rather than air conditioning, and lowering the temperature on your thermostat.  
  • Using green materials like carpets and paints with fewer toxins and chemicals, can really improve indoor air quality. And as we breathe around 11,000 litres of air a day, quality matters.
  • Clean up by washing clothes on a cold setting and line drying your laundry.  
  • Our homes can help us use energy and water efficiently. Investing in the latest smart tech appliances is a smart move.
