Penang My Green Home

"The Making of Sustainable future depends on the knowledge & involvement of the people, including an understanding of the consequences of individual actions"

 

Have you thought of running out of power to illuminate your light bulbs or heat your water; running out of clean water to drink; or suffering from hazardous chemical spillage from home products ever crossed your mind?

 

Green effort is nothing new for us. However, we have so focus on the famous three Rs—Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. — for so long that we’ve missed the bigger picture —Sustainable Living.

 

As the Earth’s natural resources deplete from excessive usage, we should instead ask ourselves,

 

“Are we using our natural resources efficiently?”

Everything Starts From Home - Build Your Green Home Today!

Penang My Green Home will attempt to answer this question with the motivation on developing, designing, and maintaining a green home and lifestyle.

 

Our actions and habits will affect our health and livelihood. Every effort we make, every step we take affects the long-term health of our ecosystems that bring bountiful supplies of natural resources.

 

We should put our heads and hands together to create a better life for ourselves and for generations to come.

 

It may seem like a big leap for you, so let’s just start small, one step at a time.

 

Let’s start from our home, Penang.
