The path to walk towards a more sustainable lifestyle is very long and broad. There are many ways available for each individual to contribute to take care of our environment. Greenhouse Policy Coalition has put together a list with useful tips, to help anyone wishing to walk along this path with us.
Instead of cranking up the heat on colder days, consider just adding extra layers of clothes. Wear comfy thick socks, your favourite hoodie, and thick fabric sweatpants. You will save not only on your utility bill but also on your carbon print and energy consumption rates.
Plant your Food
Ornamental plants are beautiful to look at, but there are quite a few vegetables and herbs you can plant and harvest yourself. Additionally, any of the goods you do not consume, you can donate to neighbours and charity organizations like food pantries.
Reuse and Cycle Away
Bicycles can be purchased second-hand and are perfectly functional. You can reuse an item that would only add to pollution and waste otherwise. Moreover, you can reduce your carbon print by doing all your commuting on this wonderful second-hand bicycle.
Bring your Own Bags and Containers
Instead of using a new plastic bag or purchasing items that come in plastic containers, bring your own recyclable bag and prefer stores that sell stuff you can put in your own containers. This way you make sure all the packaging for your articles is toxic-free and entirely eco-friendly.
Choose Online Entertainment
A great example of this is choosing to play all online slots in an online casino, rather than visiting a physical one. You reduce your carbon print, by not having to travel anywhere to gamble away.
You do not contribute to the large casinos’ waste-producing and high energy consumption facilities.
Support Ethical and Eco-friendly Companies
There are many companies out there making the best efforts to keep their processes and products completely ecofriendly. Choose these companies instead of those that offer toxic and wasteful products, to encourage and support their operations.
Every customer they gain is a customer the less eco-friendly companies lose.
Following these simple tips is easy and sometimes quite fun. Include all your activities in your path towards sustainability and you will soon see the change in the environment around you. Support businesses and your community by buying secondhand items or from companies that have green policies.
