Building a sustainable lifestyle might be difficult for most people who don’t know where to begin. But implementing tiny, yet significant adjustments in our homes is one of the simplest ways to start.
IKEA is playing its part by encouraging customers to adopt sustainable practises in their daily lives. The company itself has implemented many eco-friendly policies, including changing the way it produces its products. It now chooses resources from sustainable sources for its goods, and uses renewable or recyclable materials.
To inspire Malaysians to adopt sustainable living habits at home, IKEA is offering a wide selection of sustainably-derived solutions at affordable prices. Here are three tips to help you achieve a more sustainable lifestyle:
1. Conserve Energy
Make minor efforts to reduce energy usage and be more conscious of how it’s used. If you’re renovating your home, now would be an excellent opportunity to convert to energy-efficient LED lights, which consume up to 85% less energy and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
Create an Instagram-worthy backdrop for family photographs outside, and add some solar-powered decorative lights to spice things up!
Here’s a suggestion: instead of using disposable batteries, why not use rechargeable batteries?
2. Contemplate before throwing anything out
