Looking to make your home as green as can be? Here are a few quick tips to get you started!
Go Drought Tolerant
Using drought tolerant plants, rain barrel irrigation, and xeriscaping can help you save water and reduce your water bill!
Check Out the Latest Green Home Innovations
Choose from recycled glass countertops (which I have in my own home), carpet made from recycled soda bottles, eco-friendly insulation, doors made from recycled materials, and more!
Keep Air Quality Healthy
Using no-VOC paints and other non-toxic materials will reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals in your home! Also, if you haven’t already switched to natural cleaning products, do so! You can easily make your own with vinegar, water and essential oils! Especially if you live in a big city, an air filter is always a good idea to reduce exposure to pollutants and allergens.
Check Your Windows
Having old windows and doors which allow heat or air conditioning to escape may count for up to 40% of your heating and cooling bills. Check windows and see if they need repairs. Also, look into window treatments which help keep heat or air conditioning from escaping!

The new app from Chai Energy helps you to get a grip on energy usage and find out ways to save energy and money!
