There’s no two ways about it - climate change is real and you can see its adverse effects every day, globally. Understanding climate change and global warming, and doing something about it are two different things. Choosing the latter will help save our planet and reignite the hope for a better future. All you have to do is take certain steps that will help you reduce your carbon footprint. And you can begin right at your home in Runwal Bliss comprising of 3 BHK flats in Kanjurmarg East.
To save the planet from the ever-changing climate, take a look at these 5 ways by which you can reduce your carbon footprint.
There’s only so much water on the planet and since we cannot make any more of it, reducing water wastage is essential. Being environmentally-conscious does not mean you have to deprive yourself of hot showers. You can adopt a more eco-friendly lifestyle by installing low-flow shower heads, which regulate the use of hot water, and take shorter showers so as to preserve water.
Even when you turn the switch off, the appliance you had put for charging consumes energy. Therefore, every time you take your phone or laptop off charging, remember to unplug as well so you save energy. The same goes for all the other devices at your home that you do not use on a daily basis. Whenever you need to use the appliances, you can always plug them in. It is essential that you remember to unplug your devices after use. This will help in conserving a lot of energy and also reduce your electricity consumption.
Switch your current lights with high power, low energy lights for efficient use of lighting. Apart from this, you also need to switch the lights off when not in use. If all of you are sitting in the living room of your home, make sure you have switched off all the lights in the rest of the house. This will help a great deal in reducing your carbon footprint.
As you have already seen, the greener (read: energy-efficient) your home is, the better. But, adding shades of natural green in your home isn’t such a bad idea. If you stay in an apartment, you can grow a garden in your balcony and if you have a front yard or backyard, the merrier. You can even become self-sufficient by growing vegetables and fruits in your garden. It will not just help you live a more eco-friendly lifestyle but also add to your home’s charm.
Take these baby steps to a brighter and secure future for you as well as our planet. Apart from this, you can also use solar power at your home, pick reusable bags, wash clothes in cold water, and even compost. We, at Runwal Bliss, understand the importance of climate change and have adopted many sustainable measures to do our bit towards saving our planet.
