Energy Efficient Appliances
Eco-friendly and energy efficient appliances go hand in hand. Older models of appliances such as dishwashers, fridges and washing machines tend to use more energy. When replacing appliances in your home, choose those with the highest energy efficiency star rating as possible.
Low Flow Shower Heads
Replace shower heads in your home with low flow models. Many low flow shower heads can save litres of water each minute, making a significant impact on your homes water usage while saving you money. Many people assume a low flow shower head will negatively impact the strength of the water flow when showering, however there are many low-flow shower heads that prove this is not the case.
Repair Dripping Taps
A few taps in your home with an occasional drip or two may not be considered an issue. However, each drip wastes precious water. If not repaired dripping taps can waste litres of water each day. Help do your part to conserve water and make having dripping taps fixed a priority.
Dual Flush Toilets
Dual-flush toilets give you the option of what amount of water is needed to flush away waste. A small flush will use on average 3 litres of water while a full flush on average 4.5 litres of water. In homes with multiple toilets, dual flush toilets can have a significant impact on reducing water consumption.
Water Filtration System
Purchasing filtered water for drinking and your household can have a negative environmental impact as it is normally stored in plastic bottles. Under sink filtration systems are becoming more popular as our water supply becomes more and more laden with chemicals and dirt. By installing an under-sink filtration system in your home, you are ensuring the water that comes straight from the tap is cleaner and safer for your family and is another way to add an eco-friendly feature to your home.
