World Envronment Day: How To Be Greener At Home!

In light of UAE’s different initiatives to become more green and protect the environment, it is crucial and important to follow through. Going green for the UAE begins at your home, here are ways that allows you to contribute to a better environment and aligning with the UAE.

  • Reserve energy

Energy conservation is one of the most important things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. Leaving your electricals on standby needlessly uses up energy – hit the off switch and you could see huge improvements, most noticeably in your energy bills!

  • Eco Friendly technology

Invest in eco friendly technology. Make sure that the tech you have got is as energy-efficient as possible. This way, you’re using much less energy for the time that the product is on, saving money, and reducing your energy output.

  • Go for renewables!

Changing your energy supplier to one that’s 100% renewable is a great eco-friendly tip for any home. Anyone can do it, switching is simple and hassle-free plus all the electricity you use when on a 100% renewable tariff is effectively zero carbon!

  • More vegetables, less meat

Being careful with what you’re consuming is at the heart of being more eco-friendly, and cutting down on the amount of meat you eat can have a huge impact. Not having red meat - even if it’s just for two or three days a week - can have quite a significant impact on reducing your carbon footprint.

  • Refrain from wasting food

Wasting food isn’t just a huge waste of food and money, it adds to the amount of CO2 being created in landfills.

  • Cut off plastic

Cutting off plastic is the most traditional way yet most affective as plastic seems to have found its way into every single aspect of our lives. However, giving it up isn’t as difficult as you might think – bring a canvas bag with you when you go shopping, buy your fruit and veg loose and stop buying bottled water.
