Eco Hints For Home

There are many ways that we can incorporate eco-friendly activities into our everyday chores around the home.

These small changes that we make in our daily lives will make a difference to the future of our planet and we should encourage our friends, family and neighbors to do the same.

Wallpaper
It is making a comeback and instead of chemically filled paint, try an interesting design to brighten up your home.

Curtains
20% of heat escapes through the windows. Get out the sewing machine and turn your favourite fabric into curtains that instantly update your home.

Furniture
Instead of spending cash on new furniture, search Craigslist, Gumtree and other sites to find used goods. Recycled pieces add character to your home.

Pest Control
Place bay leaves in dry food containers or leave some sprigs on the shelf to ward away little creatures.

Air Fresheners
In recycled jam jars place sliced citrus fruits, herbs and spices. Rosemary is sturdy and thyme has a beautifully fresh scent. You can use cloves and cinnamon sticks too. Place some boiling water in the jar and place around your home. They look pretty too, so put them on display.
