Here’s some eco-tips that work well with Islamic mortgages

Islamic loans help you stay away from riba and Sharia compliant and with them you’re going to feel good in a spiritual sense. Add to that by taking advantage of these eco-tips so you’ll be doing your part for the planet as well.

  • Downsize your phantom load. If you think this blog has suddenly turned its focus to losing weight or the paranormal, don’t worry. The phantom load is the amount of electricity you use when you leave things like televisions and computers plugged in, even when you’re not using them. If you can’t unplug everything each night before you go to bed, try using a power bar and simply hit the off switch at the end of the day. Be sure to read the instructions here so you’re not overloading the bar or straining the capabilities of your system.
  • Fix those water leaks. If you think a slow leak isn’t a priority when it comes to those things that need to be done around the house–think again. Nine thousand liters of water are wasted every year by a tap that drips just once per second. A few drops of food colouring in the water tank of your toilet will tell you if you have a leak  when the colour shows up in the bowl.

Islamic finance is a great method to help stay on the spiritual path and these other tips can save you money and the planet’s resources too.
