Green Homes

Green homes are buildings or houses that actively choose to participate in reducing their exposure to pollutants, decrease their environmental footprint, all while offering a non-toxic, energy-efficient, small-carbon-footprint place they can call their home.

Many experts agree that investing in a green home is the panacea of environmentally friendly healthy living. It creates a living space with clean air and lower energy bills. Most importantly it supports companies and products that cause the least harm to our planet.

The size of a home will have an impact on the eco-footprint but it doesn't mean that green homes have to be tiny.

Investing in energy efficient technology such as residential solar panels will allow us to reduce our carbon emission and the amount of energy our home needs in the first place.

Minimalism in the mainstream

The idea of minimalism has inserted its way into the mainstream where it was made popular by Marie Kondo and that science has evidence to back its arguments.

Minimalistic living is good for the mind, body, and soul. When we consume less, we're also lowering our footprint on the planet. By buying less of clothing, gadget, or products we help in reducing the amount of resources and emissions that come with the manufacturing of every new product.

Carbon Footprints

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that come from the production, use, and end-of-life of a product or service. It includes carbon dioxide — the gas most commonly emitted by humans.

Usually, the bulk of an individual’s carbon footprint will come from transportation, housing and food. 

There are simple choices you can make in your day-to-day life to lessen your personal impact on the environment.
