HR-032016-BP1-1When taking on a home improvement project, it’s important to consider how it affects your carbon footprint. Consider some of these earth-friendly ideas:

Rent your project tools

Not only does this save you money, but it also limits energy consumption, pollution and waste associated with manufacturing, storing and maintaining new equipment.

Try eco-friendly lighting

While LED and CFL lightbulbs tend to cost more upfront, they use significantly less energy and last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.

Invest in water-saving features

Fixtures like low flow faucets, toilets and showerheads are just a few of the ways you can conserve water in your home and reduce the amount of your water bills.
