The idea of caring for the planet sounds like a noble thing to do and — an overwhelming goal at the same time. Rather than taking on the responsibility of looking after every aspect of the earth on your own, you can take steps to take care of your home and have that be your contribution toward looking after the planet. If everyone did what they could in their own living space, the planet would be a lot healthier.
Ways You Can Care for your Home & The Planet
1. Get Rid of Clutter
Go through your home and get rid of things you no longer need or use. Donate items that are in good condition to charity and take clothing that your children have outgrown or that you no longer wear to a thrift store. If you have old magazines on hand, find out if your local thrift store will take them as well or recycle them.
2. Harmonize your Living Space with Feng Shui Principles
Feng shui has been used for 4,000 years, and there is something to this practice of placing furniture and other items in your home in a particular manner to achieve a good energy flow. If your home has this type of positive energy flow, you are helping the planet. Borrow a book from the public library, explore this subject online, enlist the help of a professional feng shui consultant or move your furniture yourself until you feel you have made a difference in your indoor environment.
3. Make Necessary Repairs
Having broken items or things that need to be repaired in your home will bring you down. It’s not always possible to attend to them right away due to lack of funds, though. Try to make repairs to your home a priority before you invest in “stuff” like furniture or electronics to decorate your interior.
Putting off repairs to things like a rooftop air conditioner means that your unit will not work as efficiently. It will need more energy and cost more money to try to cool your home. This is not the best situation for you or the planet. By making the repair a priority, you can deal with the problem before it becomes a bigger, and even more expensive, one.
4. Make your Home Inviting by Adding Curb Appeal
The front of your home is the first thing that visitors will see when they approach your property. Make a point of making it look attractive by painting your front door a bright color. Add some flowers to your yard, a window box, or by using hanging planters to add some brightness.
5. Vow to Leave your Space in Better Shape than when you Moved in
When you move out of one home, vow to yourself that it should look better than when you moved in. Your improvement could be through your decorating efforts or because of your regular maintenance and repairs. You could have improved the space by keeping it immaculate by cleaning it regularly.
