4 ways to green your home

1. Arrange a space for the garden. Consuming our own food helps reduce the fuel consumption of large trucks that import foreign products.

2. Provide space for recycling and composting. Compost reduces the emissions of methane produced by domestic waste. Methane contributes to increasing the greenhouse effect and is 20% more harmful than CO2.

3. Build and renovate in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. Opt for local or recycled materials, such as high-pressure laminate countertops instead of marble. Laminate is now recognized by the Green Building Council as a choice of ecological and antimicrobial surfaces.

4. Reduce your electricity bill. A low monthly electricity cost can be extremely appealing to a savvy buyer.

Asa Moberg, Clara Borggren, Goran Finnveden, Sara Tyskeng. 2010. Environmental impacts
of electronic invoicing. Progress in Industrial Ecology 7, 93 - 113


The aim of this article is to increase current knowledge about the advantages and disadvantages of the possible total transition from all paper invoicing to all electronic invoicing in Sweden. Screening life cycle assessment (LCA) was performed as life cycle perspective should preferably be used when considering environmental impacts of products. The results of the study show that there are benefits from transition to electronic invoices regarding cumulative energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions. The magnitude of the benefits is mainly dependent on the amount of paper used for the traditional invoices and whether the electronic invoices are printed.
