What is Sustainable Energy and How we can Apply it on Everyday Living

***This is a sponsored post, this article is written by me, opinions and views are 100% mine.



We live in today's world with fast-paced technology and innovations. When we talk about technology, electricity consumption goes hand in hand. One of the best examples of how we widely consume electricity is the usage of mobile phones, which is an account of millions as we talk. Mobile phones are the very basic technology of a single person in existence, it is a powerful tool for information in an instant. 

We rely on technology for information.

The larger the amount of use for technology the greater and vast amount of energy is needed. This is where the practice of sustainable energy should be practice. 

What is sustainable energy? 
Sustainable energy is the practice of using energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." 
"Meeting the world's needs for energy sustainably is widely considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. Worldwide, nearly a billion people lack access to electricity, and around 3 billion people rely on smoky fuels such as wood, charcoal or animal dung to cook. These and fossil fuels are a major contributor to air pollution, which causes an estimated 7 million deaths per year. Production and consumption of energy emit over 70% of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions."
Douglas Healy, a renowned attorney, and advocate of renewable energy discussed further the topic at Augustafreepress.


In some very small ways that we practice sustainable energy in everyday life can prevent additional damage to what we have right now. Sustainable energy practices at home can be a great impact when everyone can practice it. 

 You can do some of the things listed below, start in small ways

  • Minimalism- lessen the household and personal things that needed electricity to power.
  •  Purchase energy-saving appliances- such as refrigerators, washing machines, television sets, and kitchen gadgets. Energy-saving appliances are being promoted in the market today. If your current appliances needed a replacement for such energy-saving ones, do so.
  • Replace lights- if you are using Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) or Incandescent Light Bulbs better replace those with LED lights or Light Emitting Diode for lesser electricity consumption.
  • Car-pool, bike or walk- maximize the use of an automobile, use the car for carpooling; it will save time, money for gas, and lessen the emission of carbon dioxide which is one of the contributory factors of air pollution. Bike or walk your way around, a healthy way to exercise your body according to your pace without exerting too much effort. 
  • A routine check of plugged devices- make a habit of checking the usually plugged appliances and charging cables for gadgets. Plugged appliances and charging cables even when not in use can consume electricity. 
  • Switching to the use of natural cleaning materials- many cleaning agents in the market contain chemical agents that are harmful when flushed in the sewerage. Both air pollution and water pollution contributory. 
  • Natural light- the use of natural light from the window can help reduce the use of electric light.
  • Reuse, Reduce, Recycle- the three powerful R's. 

Small steps can make a difference. How do you practice sustainable energy in your everyday living?

    I need to unplug my coffee maker. It doesn't get used very often and I hate to know how much wasted electricity it uses.

    In my neighborhood, a bunch of the houses around us have added solar panels to their house. I'd love to but don't think my house is capable of holding that heavy equipment or that my landlord would like it. Maybe they can eventually make a solar panel that is small for people who live in smaller homes. Anything that we can put back onto the grid is worth it.

  19. Thanks for this tips! I love these energy saving ideas since I am the one who manages the household, it's really a plus for me if I bought energy saving devices. I also have an energy saving routine like on the list above.
