Tips for Making Your Home More Eco-Friendly

Friday, April 27, 2018

As our knowledge on the topic of global warming grows, more and more people are turning their attention to eco-friendly living. It couldn't be more timely. With proof surfacing each day of the declining state of the Earth's health, it's time we turned out attention to saving the Earth.

Most of us are already in the habit of making small changes in our daily lives such as recycling, using public transportation when we can, and turning off lights and appliances in an effort to conserve energy.

In some cases, we can be doing more on a larger scale in our homes. The best approach is to keep it simple so that every family member can be involved with becoming overwhelmed.

Here are a few ways to reduce your carbon footprint.

1. Reduce Waste
One of the key ingredients to living a more eco-friendly lifestyle is to get more out of your resources. Waste reduction is one of the greatest steps you can take. By decreasing the amount we put in landfills, we are ultimately caring for the health of our planet. Start by taking a close look at your garbage. It may not be a pleasant task, but it will be eye-opening.

I recently switched to tube-free toilet paper. It's a small change, but every little bit helps. I purchased a huge package of Scott® TubeFree toilet tissue from Amazon when I was stocking up on everyday essentials. Not only am I eliminating one more factor of waste, but Kimberly-Clark Corporation, the makers of Scott products, has entered into a 3-year partnership with Amazon, the World Wildlife Federation® (WWF), and the Forest Stewardship Council® (FFC) to produce paper products that come from responsibly managed forests.

The FSC helps consumers make informed decisions about the forest products they buy, and Amazon makes it easy, convenient, and cost-effective to shop for responsibly-manufactured paper products manufactured by Kimberly-Clark, makers of such products as Scott, Kleenex, Viva Paper Towels, and Cottonelle.

The cardboard roll is hardly a necessity, and I love to see that Kimberly-Clark Corporation is focusing on sustainability.

You too can save our planet and protect nature by purchasing Kimberly-Clark Family Care products. Look for the the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label on participating products. Take pride in knowing that the FSC certified product you purchase comes from responsibly managed forests around the globe protecting forests for generations to come.

Embrace The Great Outdoors
There are a number of ways to actively improve your green living by getting outdoors. Growing a garden, even a small one makes a big impact as does composting. However, simply encouraging more time in the yard where you aren't using the indoor energy resources will make a big difference.

Speaking of the great outdoors, you can enter for a chance to win the trip of a lifetime to Banff, Canada to explore its natural beauty. What better way to experience nature's beauty than a trip to Canada where you can explore the outdoors and all it has to offer in Banff.
