Our environment is getting severely affected by the consumption of fossil fuels. Increase in population is also affecting our environment. People now need more houses to live in. Houses are built and roads are constructed by cutting trees. This is increasing the carbon dioxide level in the air causing a number of serious consequences such as global warming, ozone layer depletion, etc. By living in tiny houses, we can reduce these terrible effects on nature. Here are reasons why.
- When constructing an average-sized house, you will need about 7 logging trucks to carry wood products for the construction of the house. For a tiny house, you will only need 1 logging truck. So, less wood will be needed and less CO2 will be released into the atmosphere due to less number of transports.
- An average house generates about 28,000 pounds of CO2 every year due to heating, cooling, and consumption of electricity. In case of a tiny house, only 2,000 pounds of CO2 will be released every year. So, you will have better air to breathe.
- If you live in a tiny house, you will be using less electricity. So, you will be using up less natural resources. Other people will be able to get their share too.
If you are concerned about the environment and want to make our earth a better place to live in then you should think of living in a tiny house. You will not only be contributing positively to the environment but will also save a lot of money at the end of the year.
