Welcome to 2017! Do you have New Year’s Resolutions? Do you have plans for what you’d like to do this year? I do, too. One of my resolutions is to do projects to make my house more environmentally sustainable. A few years ago when I wanted to make green lifestyle changes each week (the Green Challenge), I learned that writing this blog was great motivation so that I never skipped a week. Similarly, I have decided that this year I will do the Green House Challenge with at least one eco-friendly project per month. Knowing that the projects will be more time consuming, I’ll give myself a month rather than a week.
My husband and I moved into our first house last summer. I’m not a home improvement expert. But, I am passionate about the environment, and I know that I can make a lot of improvements to our house which will save energy, money, water, carbon dioxide, and pollution.
Many of the projects that I have in mind, will be equally applicable for people living in apartments or condos. So, follow along with me as I create a more sustainable home, learn a few things about home improvement projects, and have fun!
