In honor of Mother Earth, we have decided to highlight one of our favorite green trends: Sustainable Homes. Sounds expensive right? Well not necessarily. While solar panels and green roofing are the big ticket items, there are plenty of economical ways to make your home more sustainable. Simply by changing out your light bulbs to either Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL), you will save both money and precious energy. Also, by upgrading to a low-flow shower heads and faucets, you will greatly reduce your annual household water usage. Finally, by opting to use earth-friendly cleaning supplies, you can reduce toxins in the environment. We love Brooklyn-based Haven cleaning products the most!
