Tiny Home Means Tiny Footprint

When you move into a tiny home, you will find that it is much easier to lower your carbon footprint. Moving into a tiny home alone is an eco-friendly decision, but once you research how to use even less energy, you will find ways to make your tiny home an environmentally friendly environment customized to your needs.


A majority of tiny homes are available for installation of solar panels or set up of solar panels outside of your tiny home at the location in which you park. On top of that, one of the easiest ways to save energy is to use the natural lighting from the outdoors, as well as fresh air (if the weather permits) from opening the windows.


The less heating and air conditioning used in your tiny home the lower the environmental impact, however, it is not always reasonable to shut off your air conditioning. As for heat, tiny homes distribute heat quickly meaning that it is not necessarily to crank up the heat and leave it running.


Tiny home living allows you to make fewer grocery runs, because on your lot and inside your home you have the ability to grow some of your own produce. This also reduces disposal. Committing to eat out less and park somewhere that doesn’t require a long travel to get fresh produce are simple ways to live eco-friendly.

If you lease a parking spot in a location with lots of greenery, you can commit some time to taking care of the existing plants or planting new ones. This not only adds beauty to your new “yard”, it also keeps the air fresh and plants healthy. Many tiny home owners even grow their own mini gardens that are incredibly beneficial to air quality as well as the value of your tiny home.
