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.
