We want to encourage people to be environmentally responsible and to promote living a green lifestyle.
There are many things we can do in our homes and workplaces to help make a difference to the environment.
Here are our top 3 ways to be environmentally friendly in the home:
Recycling is our top way to look after the environment. General household waste goes straight to landfill sites where it decomposes releasing noxious gases and chemicals. Gases such as carbon dioxide and methane contribute to climate change.
Glass, paper and plastics are the most commonly recycled but most household waste can be recycled nowadays. You can hire a specialist rubbish removal company to supply recycling services in the Kent area – click here to read more.
Insulate your home
Heating your home uses fuel and if this heat is escaping through poorly insulated walls and old-fashioned windows then it is a waste of fuel and also can be very expensive. It is well worth investing in insulating your home to cut your annual energy usage and bills.
Have you considered using energy from renewable sources? You could install solar panels on your property to produce your own electricity and maybe even sell excess electricity back to the grid. Wind power is also taking off around the country with more wind farms being constructed each year.
