Green Living - Save Life, Save Earth!

by Kenneth Rabasco 09/01/2019

Living green is sustainable living. It’s a lifestyle in which individuals endeavor to reduce the number of natural resources used and the amount of waste created to benefit the earth. It aims to promote a lifestyle that is eco-friendly through various means such as energy consumption, transportation alternatives, and waste management. To go-green, individuals usually must change their whole outlook as it pertains to the earth and how their choices affect it. As trendy as it has become, it takes more than a couple of changes to really be considered living green. Sustainable-living is a big commitment.Green living makes one live healthfully. It saves money and also the environment. It is essential to live green in order to save the earth from human excess. But homeowners don’t always know which ideas to follow for green living. Here are some ideas you can incorporate into your home.

Green living ideas

The main idea of living green is to reduce the waste discarded from your home. Now, many companies are taking steps to reduce their packaging. This is a good idea to follow for living green. Another idea to follow is to reuse durable containers and products. Bring reusable bags to the grocery store. Buy products in glass containers that can be recycled or repurposed in your home.

The other major ideas for living green are:

  • Love the planet. Using organic products and cosmetics is a way to lead a green life. Use hormone-free dairy products and try to buy these products in glass bottles, because glass is reusable.
  • Grow plants or trees that give off oxygen.
  • Avoid plastic containers unless they are reusable.
  • Recycle. If your city or waste removal support recycling, do your best to follow their guidelines. If there are no recycling centers available in your area, reduce your waste, and upcycle items you no longer use to someone else.

Why choose green living?

Health: There are many health benefits. Green transportation such as biking or walking gives a person exercise and reduces pollution—living-green includes buying local, which gives individuals fresher options. Organically-grown produce reduces the number of chemicals and pesticides in food.

Finances: Using natural, renewable resources like natural light instead of electricity or filtered water in reusable containers instead of bottled water costs less. Buying local supports neighborhood vendors and helps the community while cutting out the expense of transportation. Lower utility bills too, with solar and wind technology.

Future: Prepare for the future by saving it. By using renewable resources, cutting waste, and reducing pollution, the future of the earth can be secured for later generations.

It is a responsibility to live green and to make the globe green. If you’re looking for a certified green-living property, consult your local realtor for options.

Professional Associations & Designations Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service Subscriber, Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors Member, New York State Association of Realtors Member, National Association of Realtors Member Community Involvement Member of the Rotary Club of Hartsdale - Greenburgh Education Pace University - Bachelor of Business Administration Testimonials I will never refer to Bosco as my realtor, he’s a trusted friend. I met Bosco 6 months after loosing my husband of 11 years. I have two daughter’s Jennifer and Kylie. I didn’t need this big house in Eastchester. The upkeep was just too much for me. Bosco helped me sell my home and I purchased a townhouse. It was important for me to keep my girls in the Eastchester school district. I will be forever grateful to my new friend. He still calls from time to time to check in on us. Thanks Bosco. Karen Schwartz You will not be disappointed with all the work that Ken aka Bosco does for his clients. I was able to sell my house very quickly with his knowledge of what sells a house. From the front door throughout the house he noted what had to be removed and changed. He understands what people want to see in purchasing a house. With his help I was able to sell my house for $15,000 over the asking price. You won't go wrong with Bosco looking out for you. I can't thank him enough. I learned a lot from him, he knows the business. I will be forever grateful. Helen Izzo My girlfriend and I were looking to relocate to Westchester. We were first-time homebuyers and Bosco helped us with every step of the process and helped us find our dream home. He made sure to understand what we wanted. He made himself available when we had questions. He is reliable, very knowledgeable, and a true professional. Debora Flores I had the great pleasure of working with Bosco this past winter-spring on my first home purchase. Prior to Bosco I had a bad experience with another realtor who was unfortunately very unresponsive, lacked effort and ultimately not helpful. Thankfully my wishes were answered when I met Bosco because he was the complete opposite. Bosco doesn't waste time, he's extremely on top of everything. When I expressed interest in a listing, he'd book a visit within 1-2 days of me highlighting my home. He understands how aggressive the Westchester market is; good homes were snatched quickly. Moreover, I work in Manhattan, so I could only see places late at night, 7:30pm onward. He didn't mind visiting listing with me late a night. He worked around my schedule, not his. Being a first-time buyer, I had no experience with all the complexities of co-ops. It was great working with Bosco because he knows so much. He sits on a co-op board himself, so he has first-hand knowledge of what co-op communities are looking for. He successfully guided me on all the paperwork I need to paint myself in the best light to have my offer accepted and achieve board approval. Bosco's super passionate about home buying and I think that's the type of realtor you need to successfully land a great home. His combined passion and experience makes him a great realtor in my opinion. He's my realtor for life now, because I know he'll provide the best service. Ben DiChiara Bosco is everything you would ever want in a real estate agent. Smart, personable, energetic, friendly, tireless in his pursuit, of your goal. He is dependable, reliable, and at your beck and call. What more could you want. I would use him again anytime and refer him to anyone. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.
