The world is changing, and more demands are being made on us to be ecologically responsible. No longer is it acceptable to stick your head in the sand and leave worrying about our planet and the environment to everyone else. We all need to act now and work together to ensure the health and wellbeing of all the planet’s species. 

One of the most simple changes you can make is by changing your light bulbs at home to LED bulbs. These use far less energy and will also help you to save money on your bills. They are a little more expensive to purchase, but they have a longer lifespan than traditional bulbs. So you will save money and be doing your bit for the environment

Making use of free energy sources will also help reduce the impact we have on the planet. Fitting solar panels to your home or using solar lighting outside in the garden is an excellent investment. The sun is the most potent natural energy provider, and you might find that there are financial incentives to help you switch to this way of powering your home. You may also find that you generate more energy than you need for your home if this is the case you could make money from the energy you produce! There are other natural ways you can generate power too. The wind and hydropower are both options which can be used in our homes. Get some advice to find out the best options for you in your area. 

One area that people often miss in their homes is their loft. We can lose a lot of heat from the roof of our house, which means we are using far more energy than we need. Speaking to attic insulation contractors and getting some quotes to ensure you are keeping all of your heat inside your home is an excellent step to reducing your energy bill and increasing your responsibility for the planet. 

Your garden is an area where you can really make a difference. Instead of using water from your tap, buy some rain butts and collect the rainwater from your guttering. This is better for your plants so will improve the growth and quality of your flowers and vegetables. It will also take the pressure off our water companies and will benefit the wildlife and ecosystem. 

Growing your own vegetables will also reduce your impact on our planet's resources and reduce your carbon footprint. Instead of buying your food from the shops, you can grow your own at home and start to live a more sustainable life. You could even consider buying chickens, so you have your own supply of eggs.

Small changes have significant impacts, even if you don’t feel like they will make much difference. If every household across the world committed to reducing their carbon footprint, then soon we would see a great change across the earth. It is time to start doing your bit for the planet, so think about where you could make a difference and start changing the way you live, today.
