GLINT offers the perfect framework for green living, but it’s still down to every one of us to make a difference. We’ve put together a list of five tips to make your everyday life more sustainable:
Avoid permanently tilted windows and high temperatures. Rely on quick burst ventilation instead and aim for a constant room temperature around 20 degrees Celsius. Our smart home systems [link to smart home] can help you heat efficiently.
Use energy-efficient household appliances
Avoid washing machines and refrigerators that consume a lot of energy – protect the environment and your wallet with household appliances rated as energy efficiency class A+++ or higher.
Avoid furniture made from tropical timbers and opt for local sources. Our concierge app [link to the app page] provides recommendations for sustainable carpenters and furniture retailers in Berlin.
Switch off unused devices
Do not leave the TV, stereo, or other electronics in stand-by mode – switch off devices completely or use power strips with a switch.
Opt for reusable products
Minimise the use of disposable products and plastic bags. Use glass bottles, cloth bags and other alternatives with more longevity and less waste.
