Our challenge was to find a way to make our households greener. In order to do that I decided to look into rainwater tanks. These wonderful things catch rainwater runoff and store them so it can be used for other things. This will give us a natural and not harmful way to use water. We can use this new water sources for things like dishes. The water can also be used to water your garden, that way, when the doubt comes around we don’t need to wait to water our plants. Keeping our plants nice and green all through the summer. Some rainwater tanks can hold up to 210,000 gallons of water at a time. Rainwater tanks are a little expensive,starting at almost 100 dollars, however, I believe it’s a useful tool and will be very helpful in making a home greener and more efficient. Another way to make a household greener is to invest in an at home compost, this is a really simple way to help our environment. By composting you’re basically recycling the food you didn’t eat. Composting is really good for your garden too because it creates rich, nutrient filled soil. At home composts cost about 100 dollars. They’re incredibly useful and helpful for making your household greener. The final thing I’m going to suggest may seem crazy, however, I assure you, it is not. The last thing I’m going to suggest is a green roof. You might be asking yourself what exactly that is, well I’m gonna tell you. A green roof is a roof that’s covered in grass. These odd sounding roofs are excellent for keeping your house warm in the winter and cold in the summer. They’re also really good for the environment, because your house is now made of living breathing organisms helping to reduce your carbon footprint. These roofs usually cost about 15 dollars a square foot. In conclusion, there are many easy ways to make your home greener. such as, rainwater tanks, composting, and green roofs.
