In the last few years, people have realized the importance of protecting our mother earth. Global warming, pollution and their adverse effects have made it necessary for us to rethink about each and every thing we use on everyday basis. One simple way, which people from all over the world are adopting to save our planet, is Going Green. This does not mean only going for green products, instead it focuses on the conserving resources, reducing waste and maintaining our environment.

With growing awareness about going green, many people are actually working hard to make their homes greener. As per the researches, by going for Eco friendly products you can reduce the energy usage of your house by almost fifty percent. Going green in house does not mean that you have to completely remodel your house; in fact this can be done by bringing a few changes or modifying the decor of your existing home.

These days’ markets are flooded with various types of Eco friendly products, which can increase the overall look of your house, and the best part is that these are quite affordable as well. You can paint your homes with Eco points, which are devoid of chemical and do not cause any problem. You can improve the appeal of the interiors of your home by opting for flooring made up of bamboo, wood or recycled rubber. In fact, you can also use carpets and rugs made up of recycled materials. These recycled products have become the latest trend these days. This will not only help you go green, but will give a trendier look to your home as well.

For curtains, bed sheets or other home furnishing items you can go for organic cotton and linen. Available in various types and designs, these not only flaunt your style but also show your environment friendly side. In green homes you can also have electric appliances with energy star ratings. This is an ideal way, not only to have a greener and healthier environment, but to also reduce your electricity bill to a great extent.

Apart from all these, a few changes in the basic construction of your home can also help you achieve your goal of a green home. Make sure there is proper ventilation in the home. Using air vents or exhaust fans is highly recommended, as it prevents pollutants from permeating your home. Also, proper insulation can help you decrease you cooling or heating bills to a great extent. Using solar panels for generating electricity or for heating water is a great way of reducing the electricity bills and saving our environment.

To go for the green lifestyle it is important that you should be prepared for making some changes in your current lifestyle. For this you have to do some small things, like to switch off lights and fans when not in use, have a kitchen garden, turning the taps off etc. These all together will not only increase the resource’s efficiency but will also protect our environment in a great way.
