These days, is it important to be conscious of the impact that you and the products you use have on the environment. Because the world is becoming more aware of the issues surrounding our environment and climate change, there are plenty of sustainable alternatives to many products and services including the windows and doors you use, synthetic turf, and more. Here are five ways to go green in your home and take the steps towards a healthier environment.


Light It Up

A great way to conserve energy in your home is with energy-efficient lighting. One of the most popular environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient lighting is LED. LEDs not only last longer than traditional bulbs, but they are also non-toxic and waste less energy. There are also many brands that specialize in creating sustainable light fixtures which are the perfect pair for this bulb. Above, you see the Brynne LED Pendant by Sean Lavin available through Circa Lighting. These pendants are great examples of stylish LED lighting to incorporate into your home. 


Switching your heating source is another way to make your home more environmentally friendly. Trying out a heat pump or solar thermal power will give you a cleaner heat source. Switching over to these sources will also save you some money.

Harness the Sun

Installing solar power panels on your home is a great way to switch to sustainable energy. Solar power has a plethora of benefits, including reducing energy bills and helping the environment. These panels derive energy directly from the sun and help reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels.

Eco-Friendly Cleaning

After investing in more sustainable products, you also want to make sure your cleaning with eco-friendly products to avoid harsher chemicals. Many mainstream cleaning products include chemicals that cause damage to the earth. Look for cleaning products that have no synthetic ingredients and work to benefit the environment.

Efficient Appliances

There are many greener options when it comes to purchasing large appliances. Whether this means getting an energy-conscious fridge or a washing machine that doesn’t waste water, there are green alternatives for every appliance. While these appliances may be on the pricier side, it’s worth it for the environment and your energy bills.
