As a citizen of the globe, we have responsibility to start making changes in our life to protect the environment. This will not only save the green, but also save us some money as well. Below 5 ways show you how.
1. Reusable Water Bottles
Bring your own reusable water bottle. Is a known fact that bottle water in plastic which you bought outside will leech chemicals into water if the plastic get to hot. So it’s better to use your own water bottle. Not only more green, but will also save you money.
2. Environ Bags
Instead of using plastic bags for your shopping, you can save the world by carrying your own reusable bag. Just browse around and you will find a lot of options from cloth to canvas in some cool design, which get you stylish while going green.
3. Cloth Napkins
You only use paper napkins once and will throw them away. This is pretty wasteful & expensive habit. Why don’t using cloth napkins which are a much greener way to go and not only that, every meal will feel like a special occasion.
4. Say No to Toxic Cleaning Products
Green cleaning is the new beautiful. Vinegar, salt, baking soda and lemon are natural ingredients which can clean almost your entire house. For your laundry you can choose an environmentally friendly detergent or make your own with soda flakes and a drop or two of essential oil for a lovely non toxic fragrance.
5. Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
Yes you’ve heard it all before, but how often do you really think about if every item you throw in the bin is able to be recycled? Recycling is usually the first step in the journey to going green and you need to evaluate every aluminum can, plastic bottle and cardboard box before throwing it in the garbage because it’s likely it can be recycled.
We should not underestimate small changes in our life. These little tweaks can make a big difference in saving our environment. Beside, it saves us some bulks too.
So come and join the green fun!
