3 Appliances You Must Have For A Greener Home

0 Comment

Our world has entered a climate crisis, the effects of which will have a huge impact on our children and generations to come. Thankfully, more and more people are becoming aware of this, and by taking action now we may be able to avert the worst predictions. Collective action is important, but we all need to take responsibility for our own actions, and there’s no better place to start than in your own home. There are plenty of ways that you can reduce the carbon footprint generated there, so here are three appliances you really should have if you want a greener home.

1. Water Filters

Water is the purest drink of all, or at least it should be. The fact is that water from our faucets contains many ingredients that we wouldn’t want to ingest, and we certainly wouldn’t want our family drinking it. That’s why so many people buy bottled water, but the production of bottled water leaves a large carbon footprint, leading to plastic waste, which is a major threat to aquatic and avian life. The solution is to install a high-quality water filter in your home, and you can get discount filters at prices to suit your budget. Whether you opt for water filter jugs or water filters for your fridge, you can be assured of great-tasting water that won’t be harmful to you or the environment.

2. Composting Bin

It’s an astonishing fact that the average American produces around one and a half thousand pounds of trash every year, much of which will end up as landfill either in our country or exported to countries across the globe. That’s why it’s essential that we recycle as much as we possibly can, as well as avoid purchasing single-use plastics whenever possible. One way to dramatically increase your recycling potential is to invest in a composting bin. This allows you to turn your food waste into compost that can, in turn, be used to grow plants and food in your garden. Composting is easier than you may think, and one of the greenest steps you can take.

3. More Energy Efficient Kitchen Appliances

Where would we be without our kitchen appliances and gadgets? Whilst we may not be able to contemplate life without washing machines, electric ovens and dishwashers, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t pay close attention to the energy that they use. All appliances now indicate how energy efficient they are, so look for ones that use less energy whilst still producing outstanding results. This will not only significantly lower your carbon footprint it can also save you a lot of money on your energy bills.

Using water filters and composting bins, and buying energy-efficient appliances and gadgets, can make your home much greener. When also adding double or triple glazing and home insulation you will have a much more eco-friendly home, and it can even add to the value of your property. When you have a green home, you’ll be proud to call it your own, and you’ll be doing your bit to help future generations across America and beyond.
