Building, renovating, or furnishing your home can involve different considerations, including understanding sustainable building materials.
You can adapt your home in different ways to make it more sustainable. Solar and battery systems are a great way to reduce your energy costs long term and help transition away from fossil fuel energy. The NSW State Government has put together guides about solar panels and batteries.
You can borrow one of our sustainability kits to understand your home and appliances' energy consumption or consult GreenPower to find the best renewable energy provider for you.
Reducing food waste, eating less meat, or growing your own organic food can reduce the number of pesticides and other chemicals released into the environment while minimising transport-related emissions.
