Sometimes it can be easy to forget about the environment in our day to day lives when we have so much going on. So here are some easy ways so that we can keep things a little healthier and keep this planet going that much longer…
Help the planet by saving energy and your money!
Easiest ways you can do this is by unplugging appliances when not using, installing florescent light bulbs (CFL’s), using a drying rack instead of machine drying and maybe even set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the summer when it’s not necessary.
There’s no need for bottled water
The best thing to do is to purify the original tap water instead of buying the bottled water. Not only does bottled water create a large amount of container waste but it is expensive as well. The best thing to do is to keep a bottle in your bag at all times but preferably aluminium as plastic can have some bad chemicals in it.
Think about what you eat
If you can try and have slightly less meat in your diet. It’s not like you have to go vegetarian, but by just having one less meal without meat in each weak over a period of time it will make a huge difference. Not only by doing this are you helping the environment by doing this, but it can also be great for your health. Especially if a lot of that meat is very processed as well.
Don’t go cheap for electronics
The main reason why you are probably better off at doing this is because you want to keep your computers, phones, tablets and other electronics as long as possible. When it does come time to when you don’t need them anymore donating, recycling or hiring a clearance company, are the best options for electronic waste management. The E- waste contains mercury and other toxics which is a constant growing environmental issue.
We are all in this together
Some of these small ways you can help to keep things green may seem like you are making no difference when it is just you. However, we are all in this together to keep the environment healthy and a little can go a long way.
