Eco Friendly Choices at Home and Away!

It may be difficult to see the effects of global warming and the greenhouse effect directly. But whilst you might not be experiencing the increase in temperatures that other countries are, you should still try to do your bit to help the environment by making good choices as a family, as sooner or later it will concern everyone. There are many things you can do to help, and even the smallest change can have a big impact.

One of the biggest issues facing the environment is the over use of damaging transportation by the general population. Most households own at least one car, and older cars have typically high carbon emissions which cause damage to the ozone layer. Buying a newer car means less CO2 being released into the air, and it also means lower road tax for you, so it’s a win all round really!

Flying is another big environmental issue, and just one flight makes your carbon footprint much bigger. More and more eco-conscious families are choosing a staycation and holidaying to counter this. You can try this for free too if you are lucky enough to win one of the Butlins UK breaks by entering your Cushelle Barcode online.

Small changes can also help the world around you. Turning off sockets at the wall, rather than leaving your ever-increasing collection of electrical goods on standby, can save you energy, which in turn helps the environment. Saving water is also important, and you can do this just by switching from a bath to a shower, or turning the tap off while you brush your teeth. Reuse what you can and separate your rubbish so it can be easily recycled as landfill sites are quickly filling up, and soon there will be no place left for waste.

It is important for children to understand about green living and eco friendly choices, as they are the generation who will inherit the planet. Talk to your kids about why you do certain things, and the possible implications of not doing them. You do not need to make sacrifices in order to clean up your carbon footprint, but by making some changes you may help make a big difference.
