Coming out of lockdown, many people want to try out something new in life, taking better care of yourself or even the environment. As we move into a new lease of life as we knew it, it has now more than ever become important to be environmentally conscious. Here are a few tips on how to incorporate some more sustainability into your everyday life...
Wave goodbye to disposables
Before you purchase something, try considering its life expectancy. How long can it be used? Will it have more than one use? And once finished, will it end up in a landfill? This is the first step to living a more sustainable lifestyle
Say hello to timed showers
Believe it or not, 4 minute showers are very much possible! Set a timer or do it for a few weeks until you are in the habit of efficient showering. This way, not only will you save water and energy used to heat the water but also on the bills... it's a win win!
Use non-toxic cleaning products
There are hundreds of non-toxic/sustainable cleaning products available online, even natural products laying around the house can be great eco-friendly cleaning products!
Remember, natural products are healthier for you and healthier for the planet.
If you’re not using it, switch it off
The amount of money you can save on your household energy bills when you are consciously switching off unused electrical items is amazing! Not only will you again, significantly reduce your electricity bill but also your impact on natural resources and global warming.
Re sell and donate
Vintage and thrift shopping has become increasingly popular in 2020, more than ever before, so think twice before throwing items out and filling a landfill, instead resell to a local market or donate to a charity shop.
