Are you intimidated by the idea of going green? If living a more sustainable and eco-friendlier lifestyle is new to you, it can be hard to know where to start. Not to worry – we’re here to help!
In this post, we’ll share five easy ways to introduce sustainable living into your life. From ditching plastic to opting for eco-friendly transportation, there are plenty of ways to make a difference. So read on and get inspired!
Think twice before buying new
Shop second-hand whenever possible. Whether it’s clothing, furniture, or home decor, chances are you can find what you’re looking for at your local thrift store or marketplace while avoiding the environmental impact of mass production.
Go plastic free
Plastic takes centuries to break down, pollutes our oceans, and it’s slowly killing off wildlife. Try to avoid using single-use plastics where possible. This means bringing reusable bags to the grocery store, carrying a refillable water bottle, and avoiding products with excessive packaging.
Be water wise
Water conservation is critical, especially as our growing population puts increased pressure on the planet’s natural resources. Until we successfully colonise Mars, you can conserve water simply by taking shorter showers, fixing all leaking taps in your home, garden and office, and choosing low-flow and low-water appliances.
Drive less, drive green
Walking, cycling, carpooling and using public transport are all great ways to live greener. By ditching the car whenever possible, you can help to reduce air pollution and save on fuel costs. Walking and cycling are also great ways to get around while smashing your exercise goals. Hey, if the Dutch can do it, so can we!
Take extinction off your plate
Did you know that meat production is one of the most environmentally draining industries active today? By cutting down on your meat consumption just by one night a week, you can help save valuable natural resources, reduce emissions, and give your meal plans a healthy boost!
