As we celebrate Mother Earth this month, we look at how we can make a difference in our lives, home and the world.
Earth Month takes place in April every year, with Earth Day’s anniversary on April 22. This day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. The purpose is to raise awareness about caring for the environment and creating consciousness around issues affecting Mother Nature.
As we examine our daily lives and look into the future, we must continue looking for new possibilities to develop sustainable construction technologies and green living. We should reevaluate how we do things and generate fresh ideas, inventiveness, and creativity to solve environmental concerns.
Work with Truitt & White to see what changes you can make to save yourself money while helping the planet.
In our line of work, that means asking, “how energy-efficient is your home?” It’s a tricky question, but one that can make not only a difference for our planet but also for your pocketbook.
You can take a wide variety of measures to create a more energy-efficient home. Purchasing energy-efficient appliances and lighting is a great way to start, as are replacing old windows and doors with energy-efficient ones. With these changes, your electricity bill will decrease, and you will save on heating or cooling your house with more stable temperatures. Thus creating a more comfortable home environment.
It’s also important to be cognizant of your energy usage, and by making changes to your home, you can use much less.
