3 Tips for an Eco Friendly Bedroom

Most people realize that it’s important to be environmentally conscious when you are accomplishing various tasks in both your bathroom and kitchen – this is because you can literally see all the water you are using and all of the waste you are producing.  But what most people don’t realize is that if you are truly environmentally cautious, you will finds ways to be green in every room of your house.  But how can you be more eco friendly when it comes to your bedroom?  Follow these 3 tips and you will assuredly have a bedroom that leaves Mother Nature a lot better off.
  1. Always use CFL light bulbs – CFLs (or compact fluorescent light bulbs) are one of the easiest ways to instantly make your bedroom a lot more environmentally friendly.  This is because CFLs last up to five times longer than traditional light bulbs.  An added bonus – these bulbs added longevity will help save you a good chunk of money over time!
  2. Improve your bedroom’s insulation – If your bedroom is so cold during the winter that you have to crank up your thermostat perhaps insulation is to blame.  Good insulation will undoubtedly lead to a bedroom that is much warmer and will also help cut down on the amount of energy your home uses.
  3. Buy used furniture – Resist the urge to go out and buy all brand new furniture for your bedroom.  You can easily find everything you need with just a little bit of hard work.  Think how many trees you will save buy giving an old piece of furniture new life!  Just like tip #1, this tip will also help boost your bank account.
