Ways To Improve Your Home Sustainably

Climate change means that we all have to think about how to live sustainably so that we do not add to increasing carbon emissions. If you are renovating your home here are some ways you can undertake sustainable home improvement:

• Think about how you can undertake improvements so that your home becomes more energy efficient. You can do this by, for example, buying efficient appliances, improving insulation and considering using renewable sources of energy.

• Consider buying second-hand goods rather than new and be sure to donate any items you are removing from your home so that they can be re-used by someone else. Salvage yards are a great place to source building materials that look great and will not add to more carbon emissions.

• Before deciding to demolish parts of a house or removing walls, see whether there is another approach you can take that is less drastic and expensive.
