At Cherry Hill Waste, we believe strongly in the practice of recycling and ensuring we’re as environmentally-friendly as possible at all times. That’s why we currently recycle as much as 90% of the waste we collect and are committed to increasing that percentage as much as possible in the future. However, there’s always more to be done. Here are some tips on how you can be more energy efficient to improve your carbon footprint.
Consider Renewable Energy
One of the best ways that you can improve your energy efficiency is to consider installing sources of renewable energy at your home. By placing solar panels on your home, you can completely untether yourself from fossil fuels and power your home from nothing more than the power of the sun. You could even sell some energy back to the grid if you generate enough!
Unplug Chargers That Aren’t Being Used
Leaving your chargers plugged into the walls still uses energy, so a great way to reduce your energy consumption and improve your efficiency is to get into the habit of taking them out of the wall. If you get into the practice of doing this, it will become second nature and you’ll be saving money in no time at all.
If you compost at home, you can reduce the waste you create as well as save energy. By composting yourself, you’ll help to reduce the amount of energy used by waste removal professionals and, therefore, reduce your personal carbon footprint.
Replace Incandescent Bulbs
Incandescent bulbs use a huge amount of energy to work and are highly inefficient. Most incandescent bulbs convert as much as 90% of the energy they use into heat rather than light. Changing these bulbs to fluorescent or LED lights will save you money on your bills and reduce your impact on the environment.
