It’s no secret that we should be taking more care of our planet. There is no better time to start than now. If everyone does their bit to make a habit for the better, think about how much our planet would benefit.
Plastic is a serious issue, as is fast fashion and various other wasteful products. See below and try out something to change as part of your lifestyle and make it a habit!
Lunchbox/Metal/Bamboo lunch tin – invest in a re-usable tin or tub. They come in all sorts of patterns, last longer and protect your grub [just make sure to transfer to another dish if heating it up]
Metal/reusable bottle – these are literally everywhere and IS something to jump on the bandwagon about!
Walk – try walking instead of using a car where you can. Not only are you reducing your carbon footprint, you can increase your activity levels and improve your wellbeing
Public transport/share a lift – opt for public transport if you can; do some research to get some good deals or discount cards. If you or someone you know are going somewhere together, try sharing a lift
Reusable bag – take one with you! I don’t hide my distaste when someone walks into the office with a new bag from their food shop. Invest in a groovy one to easily pop out for when you need it. My out my avo one from Sass&Belle when I went to Brighton!
Turn the tap off! There is no need for you to keep water running when you brush your teeth – turn it off.
Pick up one bit of litter if you’re out and about – better still, don’t be the selfish idiot that litters in the first place.
Invest – clothes, equipment. Cheaper alternatives may break quicker and often need replacing, so try paying that little bit more; you get the quality and it lasts longer
Library – This will save you money, the environment from printing more books as well as boost your intuition! Or try out a Kindle
Please please please try this out, as I said, even if it is one thing, imagine everyone else doing the same thing: our planet will thank us for it!
