Simple Ways To Make Your UK Apartment More Sustainable

Looking for more eco-friendly ways to live? Without a doubt, conscious living is gradually becoming a part of everyday life.

Living in a way that is not harmful to the environment will undoubtedly benefit the earth and its inhabitants, and it is a no-brainer that everyone must be a part of it at some point.

It is possible to be environmentally conscious in various aspects of our lives, but it is even better when it is a conscious part of our daily lives. It can be as simple as reusing your Tupperware or as little as replacing plastic water bottles with recyclable ones… essentially anything that reduces carbon footprints.

If you want to get started on the path to sustainability, you can do so by:

Choosing a Renewable Heating Method For Your Home.

An option for switching to a more environmentally friendly energy source that comes to mind is solar thermal. It generates energy without the use of combustion, making it a more environmentally-friendly choice.

A solar thermal panel uses the sun’s heat instead of gas or oil. If you want to be more environmentally conscious, this is something to consider.

Use More Eco-Friendly Products in Your Home.

Common cleaning products, such as detergents used to clean our clothes, dishes, and homes, end up causing environmental damage due to the presence of a number of harmful ingredients.

Choose products containing ingredients that were grown or raised in a way that did not harm the ecosystem when ‘sent back’ into it.

A top tip for purchasing more environmentally friendly products is to look for those that use organic ingredients rather than synthetic ones.

Investing in Energy-Efficient Household Appliances 

Kitchen appliances are known to consume a lot of energy. Dishwashers should only be run when they are fully loaded after plates have been scraped and on the eco setting.

You can also save energy by using a lower temperature setting on your washing machine.

Even if you are currently in a serviced apartment, what steps can you take to be more environmentally conscious/sustainable?

Turn it all off: 

  • When you leave your apartment, turn off the lights. You should also turn off your computer and any other electrical items that are not in use.
  • When possible, use energy-saving light bulbs.
  • Allow your clothes to air dry instead of using the drying features on your washing machine and dishwasher.
  • You should try to cut down on the time you spend in the shower.
  • Turn off the water faucets when not in use.
