There are likely ways almost everybody could begin living a greener lifestyle. Being more eco-friendly isn’t just beneficial to the environment, but you too. You’ll likely find that you save money on your utility bills alongside having peace of mind.
Below you’ll find a few easy ways you can begin living a greener life today:
Introduce Meat Free Mondays
If you’re a meat eater and you cook meat for your family, consider cutting back by introducing ‘meat-free Mondays’. You might also like to cut back on other days of the week, especially on red meat that uses a lot of energy and resources to produce.
Reuse Items As Much As You Can
Rather than throwing items out or even recycling them, reuse them. There are so many ways you can repurpose things around the house. If you can’t repurpose an item, somebody else may be able to.
Avoid ‘Wishful Recycling’
Wishful recycling is the act of throwing something in the recycling bin and hoping for the best, even if you don’t know whether it can be recycled or not. Doing this causes a lot of items to end up in landfills, and is actually worse for the environment than just throwing the item in the bin. Learn what can be recycled in your area and if you’re ever unsure, it’s best to throw it out.
Buy Second Hand
Buying second hand rather than new will save you a ton of money and help you to make a difference to the planet!
