Make your home more eco-friendly.
With Earth Day right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking of how you can do your part to help the planet. One great way to celebrate Earth Day is by making your household more environmentally friendly. Here are some of the things that you should do around your home to help the environment.
- Cut Down on Paper Towel Use
Many people have a bad habit of overusing paper products, particularly paper towels, in their homes. It’s no secret that overconsumption of things like paper towels only fuels the lumber industry and contributes to the destruction of forests and other wooded areas. To cut down on your usage, stock your kitchen and bathrooms with cloth towels to wipe up spills and dry your hands.
- Switch Out Your Light Bulbs
Another easy way to make your home more eco-friendly is by switching over to LED lightbulbs. Not only are these bulbs better for the environment, but they also have benefits for you as well. LEDs will help you lower your electricity bill and, because they last longer than standard bulbs, will not have to be replaced as frequently.
- Naturally Purify the Air
While you can always invest in a manmade filter to purify the air inside your home, keeping certain plants inside your home can have the same positive effect on your home’s air quality. Not only will these houseplants improve your air quality, but relying on this natural alternative will cut down on the environmental costs associated with manufacturing air filters.
These are some of the things that you should do to make your household more eco-friendly this Earth Day. Are you looking for assistance with your insurance this April? If so, then contact the experts at Gant Insurance Agency. We are ready to assist you with your coverage needs today.
