The Beauty of Going Green

Going Green


“Going Green” is certainly the newest trend that has taken the world by storm. Preserving our beautiful earth for future generations is a noble, necessary cause that many have adopted. As time goes on, an increasing amount of options become available for everyday homeowners to go green and look stylish doing it. The future promises affordable solar roof tiles, electric cars, cleaner energy, and reduced emissions. The future promises a cleaner earth and more beautiful cities. The future is bright.

Use Less Energy

Updating your home with the environment in mind is not only a choice for a better tomorrow, but it also makes financial sense. Upfront costs quickly make up for how much one stands to save by adopting eco-friendly options into their homes. For those who cannot afford those up-front costs, there are many options that stand to make your home more energy efficient. The less energy required, the cheaper your utility bill. The less energy you use, the less we are dependent on environmentally damaging processes. It’s simple math.

Energy-Efficient Home

A more energy-efficient home starts with a properly insulated home. The better your walls, windows, and doors can retain their internal temperature, the less energy is wasted. You won’t be paying to heat the cold air outside as it leaks through your windows, and the environment will be better off for it. It will cost less to heat or cool your home. Mould will be a thing of the past. There are too many benefits to name. Insulate your home properly, buy new, energy-efficient windows, and you’ll be surprised at how many of your neighbours follow suit.

Smart Home

Next, bring your home into the future. It might seem counter-productive to bring automation into your home, but it will pay off. Teal Products provides many solutions to many energy-consuming headaches. Natural ventilation combined with automated services that utilise a wide range of climate sensors optimise nature to lessen your emissions footprint (and your utility bill). Make your home smarter and reap the benefits. Use nature to your benefit. Be more efficient. Save more. More and more options are developed every day to suit the needs and personal style of everyone.

Going Green – A Better Choice

Energy efficiency isn’t a dirty phrase. You don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality. The days of excess and waste are over. We have filled our landfills to the brim and have created a continent of garbage, created a hole in our ozone layer, and in some areas of the world, the air pollution is so bad, artists have made bricks with it.

Going green is more than just a fashionable statement. It is a way of life we need to live if we want to preserve the beautiful planet we were born in. If we want to live in anything but a grey wasteland of our own making, we need to respect mother nature and treasure the planet. Respect the energy that powers your home and fuels your lifestyle, and don’t waste it. The beauty of going green is that it isn’t a sacrifice in comfort or style, it’s just a better choice.

Update – Monthly Weight Loss

June Weight Loss Monthly Update

Slimming World Monthly Weigh In Results Update

Well, let’s see how I’ve done at Slimming World this month!

Weight on 31st May – 24 stone 7lb

7th June – 2.5lb loss
14th June – 1lb gain
21st June – 1.5lb gain
28th June – 1lb gain

Weight on 28th June – 24 stone 8lb


I haven’t been great this month, as you can see. The gains came from Sunday lunches that included dessert. We had my mother and father in law over for dinner one Sunday then the following Sunday was Father’s Day.
The week after wasn’t down to any one particular day, I had a bad week. I wasn’t on plan and had some weight gain because of it. Totally my fault but I’m back on it.

I’m writing everything down this week and even though we have a BBQ planned for Sunday, I’ve bought low syn sausages for me. I’m going to make my own burgers and I’m going to have salad instead of bread.
