We have 19 solar panels on our roof. 13 of the solar panels are for the ground floor and garden room. We installed a (water) descaling machine in our water system so the water is very soft (less calcium). We only use a teaspoon dish washer powder and a table spoon laundry powder. Also the amount of shampoo and soap can be20% of the regular use because of the soft water. All the machines (coffee maker, kettle, dish washer etc) using water have a longer life because there is no calcification.
In our home we eat mainly organic, vegan and/or vegetarian, except for our 2 new cats Bella and Levi. We have a composter in the garden.
We do our best to make our footprint as small as possible.
