There’s no secret that we live in a polluted world, which yields negative health benefits. Of course, depending on where you live, it may be better or worse. However, overall, the amount of carbon dioxide that we let into the air has caused a myriad of problems.
Aside from the negative environmental effects, our health is taking quite the blow both from our negligence and the necessity of fossil fuels for our way of life.
But how bad is it?
The short answer is: pretty bad. But this does not mean that there is no hope for the future. Simply by changing the way we think about the environment and our impact on it, we can take steps to ensuring a better world for future generations.
But fossil fuels are still a necessity, right? Right. But there are incentives for installing green technology that aren’t only for large corporations. In addition to getting credits for solar panels, which are expensive, there are also initiatives for simply buying new appliances.
Is it time for a new washer and dryer?
Most people will answer yes to this question. Perhaps it’s time to get rid of the old, loud, energy inefficient washer and dryer and look into buying a newer model.
And while this can be expensive, there are often government incentives that may help cover the cost of these new appliances. Even if you end up spending a large sum of money, know that you are doing your part to help the environment as well as improve your own standard of living.
