The act of reducing your carbon footprint may sound like a tough task at times. We need air-condition to beat the crazy weather, we’re using multiple gadgets at one go and we just want to consume more things!
However, taking baby steps in the right direction isn’t going to hurt anyone. Here are some simple ways to go green at home without bursting the bank.
The Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act was enforced last year makes it compulsory for residents to separate their trash into three categories – paper, plastic and other recyclables. While it’s only enforced in six states in Malaysia, this is a good practice for all and eventually, it might turn into a habit.
By doing so, we can reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfills. The amount of waste sent to landfills is increasing and there’s not enough of land to accommodate all of it. What happens when we run out of land?
Be aware of the amount of electricity used on a daily basis. It’s in simple things like turning off all the switches when you leave the house, unplugging appliances when it is not in use and limiting the amount of appliances being used at the same time.
Firstly, it cuts the cost of your electricity bill. Secondly, it could play a small part in reducing the usage of natural resources which is slowly depleting.
The products you use at home can also play a part in going green. Household products should be readily biodegradable, safe for consumption, gentle on the skin and 100% environmental friendly. Look no further than Nanoaire’s products – there’s dish wash, hand wash, sprays and even all-purpose cleaners!
Use environmental friendly products to keep the earth alive…and it keeps everyone at home healthy!
Choose to walk, cycle or take public transport to reduce carbon dioxide and particular emissions. If it takes less than 10 minutes by foot, walk. If it’s reachable by public transport, take it. If there’s a chance to carpool to school or work, why not?
It’s also a good way to exercise and burn off those extra calories!
Start using recyclable papers to print at home or opt to go completely digital!

Quite a number of things can be done with our mobile phones and there’s no need to harm the trees.
