Five ways to green-up your home

Print Friendly

Five simple tasks that will save you money and put a smile on your face.

  1. Seal all the gaps – those ‘sausage snakes’ for the front and back door just aren’t good for a craft project. In winter they trap the warm air and keep out the cold.
  2. Turn off unused switches – simple things like turning off the toaster and kettle at the wall will save energy and money.
  3. Green Clean – do away with the chemicals and look for the old fashioned ways. Vinegar and newsprint a give a perfect shine to glass and you are not using chemicals & recycling all in one.
  4. Cancel your yellow & white pages – if you are reading this you are internet savvy so why do you need those big ‘door stops’ for your phone numbers?  Also it is one less thing to store.
  5. Share water – have a bath or shower for two.  Not only saves water but good for your love life.
