Creating an eco-friendly home is one of the best things you can do for creating a sustainable life.
An eco-friendly home (a.k.a. a green home) is a house designed to be environmentally friendly and sustainable.
You do not need to build an eco-friendly home from scratch. Although that would be awesome, it is impractical for most people. Instead, do what changes you can to make your current home as eco-friendly as possible.
There are many benefits to creating an eco-friendly home:
Over time I will expand on these lessons and make individual posts will for each.
Creating an eco-friendly home is about becoming more self-sustainable. As a result, you will be less reliant on government and corporations. It is also healthier and good for the environment.
What you do as an individual makes more of a difference than you think.
Here is a video to explain why this way of thinking is beneficial to the entire world.

Great post. I love reading posts that inspire people to be better for the planet. 7 years ago my husband and I purchased our home. It was over 30 years old. It had new upgrades in it although still need some work. We updated all appliances which include kitchen appliances, a/c unit (which broke on us), hot heater (again broke on us). 4 months ago we installed solar panels and updated all window to energy efficiency. Our last thing that needs to be done is a remodel of the master bathroom. This will update all plumbing or leaky faucets. I comment because these are not easy nor cheap fixes. However if you save money you can do it in steps. Like I said it has been 7 years and we are still at it. Again love your post..
Yes, like anything worth doing it takes time and commitment. Also, it will save you money in the long run.
I Love these ideas! After the most recent hurricanes we went through solar panels have been more and more on my mind! I think eco-friendly is awesome!
It’s definitely the way forward.
I do my best to keep the lights off when possible, not waste food, limit driving, etc. but these are all great tips!
Wow this is really cool and helpful. My hubby and I have been making some changes, starting with new appliances and windows. Slowly, we’ll get there 😉
That’s great. Good to see people taking action.
That’s a lot of categories to consider!! I am in a condo, so am a bit limited.. but started small, with eco-friendly lights and thermostat. Most recently we switched our shower head. One step at a time 🙂
Yes, there’s a lot to consider, but doing only one thing is 100x times better than doing nothing.
I have eco-friendly blankets, which help me sleep better at night. This made me think more about being eco-friendly in different areas.
What are eco-friendly blankets?
Important post, I try to do all I can to be green but I don’t own my own home so can’t implement a lot of these things! Plus, not sure solar panels work too well in the UK, it’s a bit grey!
Haha.. yeah, the UK is a tad grey. But it’s good that you’re trying. Keep it up! 🙂
great post and lots of choices to opt for. there are indeed lots of benefit to creating an eco-friendly home. thanks for this post
Eco-friendly houses are the future in my opinion, we should all be looking into this information! I will be for sure try to apply some of these on my next house. X
i wish we could make most of these changes to our home but living in a rented apartment we’re pretty limited, though i do make the effort to reduce waste as much as possible.
What a great post! I think being as eco friendly as possible is something great. Some of these ideas are so easy and I think I can definitely incorporate them into my future home.
As an home interior lovers but also as a person very very fond with environment protection, I think this post is very informative. our home is a world in the world. so i think that the future of home projection must be based on eco friendliness and universal design
This post is very timely. I’m planning to have my own house soon. I’ll definitely consider the tips you shared!
Creating an eco friendly home is very important as it protects the environment. Moreover, we conserve lot of resources which will help us sustain the availability of those for generations to come.
This is one of the greatest articles I have ever read. Lots of great pieces of information and very helpful tips. Thanks for sharing this post!
I have been wanting to get solar panels for a long time! I really love that so many people are trying to find ways to be more “green” in all aspects of their lives. So beneficial for humans as a race, and for our earth!
