SUSTAINABLE LIVING

Sustainable living isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also cheaper, and we can help!

Sustainable living is about using less resources, being more efficient and recycling as much as you can. You can live more sustainably in all kinds of ways from using renewable energy to buying second hand appliances, growing your own veggies and installing LED lights.

Oh, and almost everything you do will lower your costs. We try to be as sustainable as possible with all of our properties, and here’s a few ways to achieve it.

SUSTAINABLE LIVING

Using less energy

Renewal Energy

Renewable Energy

Solar is a great way to reduce your electricity bills, and it’s a lot cheaper than it was only a few years ago. If you’re in an apartment and can’t install solar panels, then you can still buy your power from renewable sources, and make it more sustainable that way.

Better Insulation

Better Insulation

This is a no brainer, simply install insulation and your home will be cheaper to heat, and cheaper to cool. This can be as simple as sealing round your windows, or layering insulation into the roof, or under the floor.

LED Lights

LED Lights

They last much longer, use less energy, save you money and now you can buy soft light as opposed to harsh white, it’s an easy switch to make.

Second Hand Appliances

Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree are amazing options for all sorts of things, but did
you know there’s a market for second hand appliances too? In fact, we can even help you with that.
Just let us know what you’ve got, and we’ll find a home for it saving you the all the hassle of disposal,
or waiting for a council clean-up day!

The circular economy

Trash for you is treasure for another.
The circular economy is alive and well, and there’s a lot more
going on than simply getting rid of your junk in a
garage sale these days.

Decluttering & Spring Cleaning

Decluttering for a move is always a good idea. Less to pack and unpack, and the move will be easier too. Even if you’re just spring cleaning, it’s incredibly satisfying getting rid of your junk.

Repairs and upkeep

We can also facilitate the repair of many of your household appliances, so you don’t have to get rid of them at all! In fact, not buying new goods at all, unless you absolutely need them – is one of the best ways of reducing your impact, and living more sustainably. So let us know, and we’ll help you get there.

MAKING SUSTAINABLE LIVING EASY

If you’d like some help with any of this, or you’d like some help decluttering your home just let us know.

We’ll repair, re-use, recycle or dispose of everything for you!
