Will You Change Your Life In Order to Go Green?



There are some fantastic ways to live a more environmentally friendly life these days and it is simply a question of picking the ones which best suit you. If you look into the subject on the internet you will find lots of ideas for leading a greener life and some of them might grab you right away.

In some cases you might want to change your life in order to do this but will this be the ideal solution for you?

Work from Home

If you have the option of working from home then this is a fine way to cut down on your travelling. It is especially useful if you currently travel a long distance to your place of work in a car. Working from home is a big change in anyone’s lifestyle and isn’t right for everyone. However, it can make it a lot easier to live an environmentally friendly life so it is worth investigating if you ever have the chance to do so.

Get a New House

Will you be tempted to move into a new home which has better green credentials? Environmentally friendly homes tend to be more expensive than non green ones but you will, of course, expect to save money on your energy and water bills over time. The other option is to gradually implement some changes in your current house to make it greener. This will mean that it takes longer for you to see the end results but it will probably be more satisfying in the long run.

Take Different Types of Holiday

Anyone who is lucky enough to go away on holiday each year tends to view it as a hugely important part of the year. This means that the thought of losing out on trips to their favourite holiday spots could be hard to take. The good news is that you can change your life in a less drastic way and still enjoy an annual trip. This can be done by looking at greener and more sustainable holiday ideas. For example, instead of jetting off to a foreign beach you could travel less and explore your own region. Throw in lots of walking or cycling and you have a green holiday which should be enough to keep most people happy.   



 Keep It Simple

Obviously it isn’t always necessary to make such big changes to our lives when we want to be more environmentally friendly. You could also make a positive difference by doing simpler things like fitting new windows, planting more shrubs in your garden or getting a new boiler installed from your local boiler installer such as help-link.co.uk. Anything which helps you waste less energy or contribute to a better environment is to be encouraged.

  1. Going green step by step is the best way I think - then it doesn't seem like such a big change. That said, I have totally changed my life over time to become green - I no longer commute long distances to work, we are doing a house swap in the UK this summer, we have solar panels on our roof and we have made countless changes to our every day practises!

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
