Ever thought about doing your part for the environment? There are a lot of ways we can contribute right where we reside. If you are recycling paper, plastics or cans you are in on it already. This post will focus on an eco-friendly home plan.
Another Recycling Plan
If you are not already aware of the fact that when we are cooking, opening junk mail and throwing away food scraps, we are passing up one way to be eco-friendly. These things all can be added to a compost pile for later use.
Why not recycle these items creating our own compost for when we need it. I am not an organic compost making expert so I have provided the video below for informational reasons.
As we all know our lawns and gardens can use compost. When we send our trash out to large dumping fields we are not helping the ecosystem at all.
If you are a do it your self-type person you can buy a big trash can and do some work on it to make it usable. I myself would rather have one designed for storing compost for better results. Look at the video below.
Other Ways To Be Eco-Friendly
We also can help by using less energy such as purchasing the proper bulbs. Another way is water consumption. When we buy all this bottled water we have to consider the plastics that are being used. Consider water filters instead.
Using a cloth and canvas bag over a paper and plastic bag is another way. This is in reference to bags that are used in grocery stores. Some people actually take their own bags to the grocery store to keep from using paper or plastic bags.
Doing Yard Maintenance
Technology has provided us a means of being eco-friendly as well. There is much improved cordless lawn equipment we can switch to that will allow us to maintain our lawns. This equipment is perfect for home use because you usually are not running extremely long times just doing things around your home.
Using this type of equipment cuts down on gas when you consider gas-powered equipment, electricity when you consider corded equipment, and the noise factor is just another good thing lithium powered equipment provides.
Every piece of lawn equipment you use can be purchased in a lithium-powered model and most of them you can use the same battery with other tools if they are from the same manufacturer.

There are many things we can do to help out the environment and I thought I would just touch on a few. A lot of times there are ways we can help just by changing how we do things around the house.
If there is something that you are doing that you want to share please leave it in the comments section below. Others would love to hear about ways that may help them to be eco-friendly daily.
