Easy ways to be more sustainable in your daily life

Living more environmentally friendly is easier than you might think. You just need to start implementing more mindful decisions about your actions. A lot of eco-friendly living substitutes are made to last longer, so you end up buying less in the long run. Aside from purchasing eco-friendly products, these are just a few examples that will jumpstart your path to a more sustainable life:


Bring your own bag for groceries

Don’t use plastic bags, instead use tote bags or eco-friendly mesh produce bags for your fruits and veggies.

Buy local/in bulk

Support local farmers and businesses. Shopping locally will help reduce your carbon footprint. You’re also a lot more likely to find food products that are ‘package free’.

Or you can buy in bulk, bringing your own containers, to reduce the amount of packaging waste. It’s great for your wallet and the environment.


Thrift Shop

The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry behind petroleum. Thrift shopping saves clothing from going to the landfill where it can stay for years. It’s also more affordable, fun, and unique!


Use reusable water bottle/coffee mug

Imagine how much money you’ll save not buying plastic throw-away bottles! You’ll also help the environment a lot.

Choose glass, stainless steel, or bamboo

Invest in sustainable products like glass, stainless steel, or bamboo for your home. These products are more durable and better for your health.

Stop buying disposables

Always use reusables, avoid buying plastic cutlery, cups, plates, and straws.

Substitute plastic wrap 

You can easily substitute that for organic, biodegradable, and reusable beeswax food wrap, or just use containers.

Lower your meat consumption 

Even just refraining from not eating meat one day a week can help. Every small action helps to reduce your carbon footprint.


Don’t waste food and compost

Compost veggie/fruit peelings, old flowers and plants, egg boxes, paper, and leaves so that can be returned to your garden.


Make your own cleaning products

Most of the store cleaners are toxic. You can easily make your own using natural ingredients (you can find lots of ideas on Pinterest for example).


Donate

Donate items you no longer need instead of throwing them away.


Cut down on water usage

Sometimes we forget but water sustainability is a thing. Small tasks like cutting down on shower time (even just 1 minute can make a huge difference) and turning off the water while brushing your teeth is very important in the long run.


Conserve energy 

Turn off electronics if you’re not using them, like your television, computer, unplug kitchen appliances that are not very used, turn off the AC before leaving home. These are some small things that make a huge difference every month.


These are just a few ways to live sustainably. They will not only help create positive change for your home and our planet, but it’s also a great way to save money over time.
