   Guidelines 1 to 7 of 7

  Have plants and flowers in your home. 
Plants and flowers brighten our environment, bringing life and beauty to any space. They require regular watering, ritually bringing us into their world and expanding ours.

  Insulate your home. 
Insulating the walls and ceilings in your home can save about a quarter of your heating energy bills and reduces thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide yearly.

  Keep your thermostat adjusted for energy efficiency. 
Not overheating or overcooling rooms by monitoring your heater/air conditioner thermostat by turning it off when not needed, saves an enormous amount of energy.

  Live closer to town.  poll closed
Living in or close to town saves gas money and is much less polluting than living in remote regions. Life is a bit easier over-all when one lives near stores and gas stations, its much better for the environment, your fuel budget, and your social life.

  Live in an eco-friendly home. 
Renovate a home close to town, live in a recycled steel home, a straw bale or a cobb home. Eco-friendly homes give back to the community, conserving energy and natural resources while saving building costs.

  Live in an intentional community or eco-village.  poll closed
Living in individual houses with seperate kitchens and household systems is very inefficient compared to the sharing of costs, resources and chores in an intentional community. and it is socially advantageous to be living amongst like-minded people.

  Pick a climate friendly house color. 
Depending on the dominant climate of the region you live in, the color of your home can have a large affect on the cost it takes to heat or cool it; light colored for hot climates to reflect the sun's rays and dark to attract heat.
