6 Tips on Sustainable Living

Want to start practicing sustainable living? It is easier than you think. Although there are various ways to live and practice sustainable living, here are a few easy suggestions to get you started. 

01 UNPLUG

Most electronic devices keep o drawling electricity even when they’re off. To reduce energy usage, simply pull the plug when not in use. It will help you to save energy and reduce your monthly bill.

02 STOP UNWANTED MAIL

Save natural resources by opting out from billions of unwanted mailings and simplify your life. It helps you to reduce clutter, protect privacy and save environment. 

03 BECOME A MEMBER OF A COMMUNITY GARDEN

It isn’t just about growing your own food, being a member of a community garden helps to promote sustainable living in your area. Gardens create green spaces and the garden waste can be composted and returned to support a healthy soil. Healthy living promotes sustainability by reducing pollution and the consumption of natural resource.

04 DITCH PLASTIC

Plastic never goes away. It takes millions of years for plastic to decompose. It badly affects wildlife as they ingest plastic or get tangled up in it. Its time for all of us to switch to reusable bags when we shop and ditch one-time use plastic water bottles.

05 LIGHT

By changing the lighting in your home from traditional light bulbs to CFL, using natural light you will reduce your demand on energy resources significantly. Using longer lasting, energy efficient light sources also reduces the amount of waste going into landfill significantly. 

06 REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE

Reduce your need to buy new products. If there is less waste then there is less to recycle or reuse. Learning to reuse items, or repurpose them for a differ- ent use than what they are intended for is essential in waste hierarchy.
