Making sustainable and energy efficient choices to your home can be a challenge when you’re a renter, but this is exactly what Steve and Rabea set out to do when they started Smart Renting in 2011.
This month we chat to Steve from Smart Renting about how renters can make small changes to their homes and lifestyles as a means of reducing their carbon footprint. This talk follows on from September’s Sustainable House Day, which is geared more towards home ownership, renovating and building. We’re excited to open the door to many of Ballarat’s renters on what they can achieve without having to own their home.
Purchasing a house in today’s market is expensive and not a realistic option for many people. Others may prefer to rent or not have the intent on living in a particular place long term. What Steve and Rabea have shown is that these circumstances don’t mean you can’t live a sustainable lifestyle.
On the Smart Renting website, Steve and Rabea cover topics ranging from energy and water bills to food choices, decluttering and health.
