A Greener Home and Life in the Philippines

Family playing in a parkGoing the environmental route when it comes to hunting for new houses in the Philippines can be difficult, especially if you don’t know where to look.

Real Estate Hub, a real estate expert in the Philippines, provides reviews for Lancaster and other environmental communities that are paving the way for a greener and safer community living in the country. Visit their website, and you’ll learn that in order to find your future greener home, you’ll have to find “the comfort zone.”

What’s the comfort zone?

Most people think that to lessen their carbon footprint, they’ll have to change how they live drastically, and of course, where they live. This may mean a bit more extravagance in your new dwelling.

And according to Gregg Steiner, the founder of Los Angeles-based energy-reducing and green-living consulting firm Green Life Guru, “it’s possible to go too far in the pursuit of green.” But this doesn’t mean that you’re free to get carried away.

Find the comfort zone. Assess the situation carefully. Find out what you need in a house to live a greener life, so you can avoid spending more money than necessary. 

Be practical

Work with what is readily available or with what you already have. For instance, if you already have functional furniture from your old home or as gifts from relatives, incorporate them into your new home. It’s simple to look for other pieces that will work with them, or if you have an eclectic style, mismatching furniture can also be the way to go.

If you don’t like the look of your new home, re-paint it with the color you like. It’s easy to find environmental paint that can be odorless and won’t absorb stains in nearby hardware stores. This design element will last for longer than you’ll know.
