While tenants may be limited to changes they can make to the home they are renting, there are many ways homeowners can make almost every room in their home more eco-friendly.
In the bathroom, homeowners can exchange standard showerheads for low-flow options that reduce the amount of water used per minute. This not only helps lower the cost of water usage, but also energy, as water heaters won't have to work as hard. Homeowners looking for major savings can also swap out their toilet for a more modern and efficient model that uses less gallons of water per flush.
There are many upgrades homeowners can make in the kitchen to make their home more eco-friendly. When investing in appliances, make sure they are energy-efficient to help reduce utility bills. Low-flow faucets can also replace standard ones to help waste less water when washing dishes and cleaning.
In bedrooms, families can make investments in bedding that is organic while higher quality products also tend to last longer and are better for the environment.
