6 ways to Live Every day like Environment Day!
Solar Performance Specialist
Whether we would like to admit it or not we are experiencing the effects of climate change and global warming every day. From facing record-breaking heat waves in the North to enduring cyclones in the East, no one can escape the consequences left behind by fossil fuels. But there are ways to reverse the damage done and promote a healthier planet and it starts with everyday habits right at home.
Every year on June 5th, we celebrate Environment Day to raise awareness about degrading environmental conditions. Encouraging people to take positive environmental actions to help create a better future for generations to come.
Sweden hosted World Environment Day 2022. The campaign slogan was “Only One Earth”, with the focus being “Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature”.
Celebrating Environment Day is simply not enough if we want to change the environmental conditions and live a healthy life. To reverse the impact of climate change we must embed sustainable practices in our lives “Every day” of the year. Read this article if you want to know how we can live Every Day like Environment Day.
1. Invest in energy-efficient appliances to replace high-energy models
Energy-efficient appliances are more than just the eco-friendly choice, they’re a smart financial investment. ENERGY STAR labelled appliances provide savings on energy bills, which can save homeowners thousands of rupees over the life of their appliance. Appliances with an ENERGY STAR label use at least 20 per cent less energy than standard models, while being economically and environmentally smart.
2. Use LED lights
If you are looking to save money and make a positive impact on our environment, LED lights can be the perfect way to go. LED lights are more energy-efficient and last longer. They use up to 75% less energy while lasting 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs & CFLs, which can help save your utility rates from hiking up. Switch to LED today!
3. Go Green-Plant Trees
Planting trees and shrubs in your yard is a great way to save the environment and reduce your carbon footprint. Trees provide shade around your home, reducing the amount of light that filters into your home. Making it a more comfortable living space and saving energy costs.
If you are planning to install solar panels to become energy-efficient. Then, instead of planting trees you can go for a home garden. As trees might cast shadows on the solar panels which will block sunlight received by solar panels. Having a home garden is beneficial for many reasons: Gardens provide fresh fruits and vegetables, support cleaner air, and create a cool area to hang out with family and friends.
4. Reduce energy consumption
While you’ve probably heard it before, it’s important to be mindful of how much energy is being consumed at any given time. It’s easy to make changes that can reduce strain on the electrical grid. Small changes like developing a habit of plugging things in only when needed can help reduce strain on the electrical grid. This has become increasingly important during the heatwave season to help mitigate power outages. But this is not the only thing we can do for energy conservation. Other conscious decisions like powering large appliances only when required can also make a difference. For example, only run the dishwasher or washer and dryer with a full load. Switching off lights and using natural lights during day can also play a part in energy conservation.
5. Make the switch to electric vehicles
The shift towards electric vehicles is happening, and it’s not just because of the environmental benefits. Electric vehicles are also better for you physically and financially.
The use of electric-powered vehicles helps you save the environment from the dire consequences of pollution and climate change by reducing the carbon emissions that are produced by fossil fuel-powered vehicles. It will also benefit us in ways like reduced fuel bills thus increasing our monthly savings. Since they have fewer parts, no engine, no oil and parts that don't require regular maintenance, electric cars are less expensive to maintain and repair.
6. Go Solar
Solar power is a great way to reduce the electricity bills and reduce the reliance on fossil fuels. Solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity, which can be used to power our daily needs. With a solar installation, you can generate more energy than you will use in a single day. Therefore, you can generate your own electricity and export the excess to the grid, generating a profit. Installing solar can start saving from day one. Installing solar panels on your rooftop will also increase the resale value of your home. Solar energy is here to stay and it’s what we should all be investing in as a society.
A solar power system is an investment in your home and one that can save you money for a very long term. The benefits of solar power are numerous, and reducing your dependence on fossil fuels is just the beginning. Not only does renewable energy combat climate change, but it also reduces air pollution and improves public health.
