We've been on the house hunt for a while now, so my mind is always on all things "home." So, for this month's blog post, I thought it was only fitting to share some ideas to make your home sustainable. Comment below one thing you do to have a sustainable home. It could inspire someone else!


1) Compost -

What? Eggshells, coffee grounds, fruits and veg, tea bags, and a whole lot more. Why? It enriches your soil, lowers your carbon footprint, and, again, a whole lot more.

2) Shop at your local farmer's market -

We love to #ShopIrish! See if your town has a local farmers market here. You can also purchase farm-fresh eggs from a neighbor or coworker.

3) Switch from paper towels to a reusable rag -

Bonus idea: Get a basket to leave in your laundry room for these reusable rags so you can wash them all together. Thanks for that idea, TikTok.

4) Plant native plants-

Check with your local garden center if you're unsure what would be best!

5) Select appliances with high energy efficient ratings -

Use LED lights, energy-efficient washers, etc. Happy upgrading!

6) Install a rainwater collector -

Great to use for watering your plants and garden.


7) Shop smart-

And the list goes on. We can do so many little things around and in our homes to live a more sustainable life. If you feel overwhelmed, start with the shopping option. It's one of my favorites. ;-)

See you next time!
