Many people want to be more environmentally friendly but they are not sure how to begin. Here are five products that can get you and your family on the road to a greener lifestyle.
1. Solar Lighting
You want the road in your front yard to be a light for the safety of your visitors. Plus, it’s aesthetic when the front room and backyard are well lit. But leaving the electric light on is a waste of energy.
By using solar lighting in your yard, you eliminate this problem. There are solar lights for stepping stones or candle path markers to get to your front door. Shoji lanterns are available on the terrace and the bright deck area.
You can even find solar-powered lighting for grid places such as storage sheds or gardens. These lights are waterproof and easy to install.
2. Programmable Thermostats
By using one of these thermostats, you can optimally use heating and cooling devices. They can be pre-programmed so your home is cool (or warm) when you need it, but energy isn’t wasted when no one is at home.
