There are lots of articles telling you how to live a sustainable lifestyle, but finding where to begin your journey can be confusing.
There are ways to start off small to help guide you to your new eco-friendly living routine.
At Compass Fuel Oils, we have compiled a simple guide to kickstart this journey.
Starting with eco-friendly appliances. Choosing appliances that are energy efficient and environmentally friendly is a great way to start. You will notice a significant difference in your energy bills.
If you’re unsure about buying new appliances, then check the settings on your current ones and see if there is an eco-setting and this will work just as well!
If you use heating oil and live-off grid, then oil-fired boilers are perfect as they heat water on demand, furthermore, reducing the volume of fuel that’s required.
If you use heating oil to heat your home, then consider giving premium kerosene a go as an alternative. By using premium kerosene, you are allowing a clean and efficient burn with fewer impurities, meaning it is better for your boiler. Switching to premium kerosene can help reduce your usage.
By making some minor changes around your home can make a huge difference for the environment and also make your energy bills decrease.
You can easily do this in some of the following ways:
- Turning light switches off when the room is not in use.
- Fill your kettle with just the right amount of water rather than filling it up to the top.
- Skip using the dryer and opt for a maiden or washing line.
- Washing clothes on an eco-wash setting.
- If you have a dishwasher, set the cycle to an eco-setting.
- Planting herbs and plants.
- Swap regular lightbulbs for LED bulbs.
- Try vegetarian/vegan foods and drinks.
- Invest in reusable travel cups, bottles, and metal straws.
- Turning the tap off when brushing your teeth.
- Using leftover drinking water to water your plants.
- Try composting.
- Shop second-hand to reduce fast fashion.
- Repairing and recycling as best as you can.
