  • Unnecessary travel using your vehicle. Use a bike for short distances.
  • Using fossil fuels to heat the house go for clean fuel
  • Do not burn organic waste. Make compost instead.
  • Buy fuel efficient vehicles
  • Consider tankless water heaters

Conventional water heaters have a storage tank where hot water is stored before use. Unfortunately, the tanks lose some of the heat as water continues to stay there which is a waste of energy. Tankless water heaters heat the water when it is needed. Thus, no heat is lost between the time water is heated and when it is utilized. This way you conserve energy.

Recycle your water

We consume a lot of water during our daily household tasks such as washing, bathing, and irrigation among others. Some of the water can be reused for other activities when you are done using it. For example, water from cleaning, bathing, and washing can be used to flush the toilet and for use in the yard.recycle_480
