By going green, your home will be more sustainable, energy-efficient and eco-friendly. Not only does it help the environment, it can improve you and your family's lifestyle as well. A few simple (and frugal) steps that you can harbor right at home is a good way to get it going.

Switch to LED light bulbs

If you haven't already, it's about time to switch out your old light bulbs to LED ones. Although LED light bulbs are more costly in the first place compared to traditional average light bulbs, it's the better choice in the long run. Not only does it last longer (up to 30 times longer!) than the average light bulb, it cuts down energy consumption and thus, can help you save more than a few bucks!

Pro tip: You can always rely on natural light during day time which can help save loads of energy and the electrical bill. Turn on the lights only when you really need it!

Unplug Unused Appliances

In the era where most of us are equipped with gadgets and the sorts, we've tend to plug in our chargers even when not in use.
