Hello! I'm champion_watermelon and I'm here to talk about how businesses are 'going greener'
What is 'going green'?
"Going green" means to be more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions and lifestyles, which can help protect the environment and sustain its natural resources for current and future generations.For example, here at CCJA (Cheam Common Juniour Academy) for a day we made everyone in the school wear green and we had an outdoor classroom day, which ment we had a lesson outside, obviously we couldnt of spent the whole day outside because we would of gotten cold, and we couldn't of mixxed with the other years due to covid-19 reasons
Why should we go greener?
There are many reasons for going green and heres a list of a few,
- you'll increase your home value
- The energy savings will add up
- You'll save money on your water bill
- You'll breathe better air
- You'll 'get more done'
- Your project will create less construction waste
- Green homes preserve their surroundings
How will people react with this?
It will be a hard change for us as many people think going greener costs more, actually it dosn't! It saves money for a lot of things for example in 2019 the average combined gas and electricity bill for UK households reached an eye-watering £1,289 a year. The average electricity bill was £679 – an increase of 6% compared to 2018. As for gas, the average bill was estimated as £610 – a rise of 2.8%.
