Live Tiny and Eco-Friendly
A smaller home means a smaller footprint, meaning that moving into a tiny home is an eco-friendly decision on its own.
By moving into a tiny home, you automatically use less energy. However, there are other ways to customize or use your tiny home as an eco-friendly living environment.
Most tiny homes offer the opportunity to install solar panels or set them up outside of your tiny home once you park. Additionally, most tiny homes have windows throughout, many of which can open. This allows you to use natural light during the day and, weather permitting, open the windows for fresh air rather than electric.
Using less heat and air whenever possible makes a significant difference. While it is not always reasonable to avoid using air conditioning, heaters are a different story. Tiny homes heat pretty fast, meaning that it is not completely necessary to turn up the heat and leave it running. Allow your tiny home to rise to an average temperature, while using more blankets to keep you warm.
If you’ve parked your tiny home on a plot of land with greenery, you will find a great opportunity to take care of the plants surrounding your home. This not only add beauty to your tiny home, it will also keep the plants fresh and healthy. Additionally, preparing a garden will add numerous benefits to the environment and is an easy and attractive addition to your tiny home.
Living in a tiny home allows you to grow some of your own food, make less grocery and other purchases, and produce less disposal. However, many tiny home owners make less eco-friendly decisions like eating out or commuting long distances. Living eco-friendly in a tiny home is a choice to be committed to.
