If you needed any evidence that there is a need for everyone to go green and do their bit to save our planet, the climate change agreement signed by 196 nations in Paris recently is all the proof you probably need.
It’s time to make a new year’s resolution of your own this year to make 4 changes to your home that will help you go green.
The relevance of mentioning this historic agreement is that it provides an example of how we are all going to have to do something positive to be greener and if you needed any more of an incentive above the impact on our environment, you could actually save some money too, if you make some practical home improvements to improve your energy efficiency.
This infographic demonstrates four practical ways to Save Green by Going Green and if we all carried out these simple changes, it would certainly make a big difference to our pockets as well as the planet.
One of the simplest changes you can make is to upgrade your bulbs and make the switch to LED bulbs.
LED light bulbs are a bit of a non-brainer really, as they offer reduced heat emission, and are more eco-friendly as well being made from non-toxic materials. The problem that many homeowners struggle with is the fact that these bulbs look expensive compared to the cheap old-fashioned versions but you have to look to the longer term, as you will end up saving as much as 80% compared to traditional bulbs.
These LED bulbs cost just $1 per year to run if used for two hours a day and you actually get your money in the savings you make in just over two years.
Sign up to your own climate agreement and improve your green credentials as well as your bank balance.
