Are You a No Net Impact Family?

Energy Saving

We're Here to Help

Have you heard the term “no net impact?” It’s used to describe families that attempt to live in sustainable ways that have absolutely no impact on the environment.

Whew! Sounds like quite an order at first, doesn’t it?

Well, it is tough. And it may not actually be possible for your family to live in a 100% sustainable way.

However, you can certainly make small changes one day at a time. And before you know it, you could find yourself living in a highly sustainable way.

Here are some simple things to do that actually have a big positive impact on the environment:

1. Avoid Drinking from Aluminum Cans

The humble aluminum can is actually one of the biggest causes of harm to our environment. It needs more than 60 types of raw and processed materials to make and creates 75 pollutants all by itself.

You may not save yourself a ton of energy by avoiding the use of aluminum cans. But you can do the earth, the environment, and other humans a big favor.

Plus, when you think of what comes in aluminum cans, it’s usually unhealthy. So you’ll do yourself some good and avoid a few doctor trips at the same time too.

2. Using Bikes or Public Transit

You may or may not be able to realistically use public transit or a bike in your typical daily life. The commute to work or school or the store may simply not be worth it. You may lose too much time.

But you have days and times where it is possible. Or, maybe you could have a little adventure with your family. Try to fit these in where you can to help the environment – and avoid using gas too.

3. Learn to Fix Your Own Stuff

Every time you have to buy something – anything, there’s an environmental cost to that. You’re going to have to do buy some things in to make it in life.

But, avoid it as much as possible. Not only will you save yourself money and some energy, but you’ll have fun learning new things too.

And who knows, when you get good enough at fixing things, you might be able to do some of your own home energy improvements. That would save you even more money and energy.

Will You Ever Be a No-Net Impact Family?

Maybe, and maybe not. And if you’re not, that’s okay. Just do whatever little steps you can because they make a big difference.

And you’ll find yourself living in a more sustainable way that saves energy and cuts your utility costs.
