I grew up in a home that dressed up every year before the festive season. We painted the house, changed the upholstery and put in new potted plants, but somehow we did not notice if it was done the healthy and green way. Today I want my home to be safe, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and healthy too! If you haven't planned your home's makeover yet, read up what we gathered from experts and then get to work!
START OUT SMALL
You can have an environment friendly home only if you start off by becoming conscious yourself. Take small steps: check the taps and cisterns in your bathroom to see if they leak-fix or change them, if they do. Make sure your bulbs are changed to CFL ones. While CFL bulbs cost more up front, they last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs and use 66% less energy. You will know you're doing your bit in making your home-and the world-greener.
