Easy Ways to Go Green

Would you like to join the green wave? There is a huge movement to repair some of the damage our planet has suffered over time.

While it’s difficult to think about change as one person when most of the problems are coming from big companies, we would be in a better position if all “people” worked together to go green.

But how can you make your contribution? There are so many resources online that it can seem like you’re not doing anything if you’re not doing everything.

Many believe that recycling is the answer to ecology. While this is important, it is even more important not to use and buy so many new things at first.Not everything can be recycled, and the process of making new things is inherently wasteful.

Before you buy anything new, think about how much you need. Can you find the same used item?

Ideal for furniture, clothing and many small household items.

Many ecosystem-destroying companies rely on your interest in fast fashion and new but low-quality items.Don’t give in to these temptations.

If you must buy something new, make sure you shop ethically whenever possible.

Do the companies concerned use the exploited workshops? Do they talk about their ethics or their energy management?Do you have a commitment to the planet?

It’s not always possible to vote with the wallet, but if you have the opportunity, it’s worth it. Check how the company you are buying from interacts with the world and how it aligns with your ethics.

It may seem simple, but reducing your water consumption alone is good for the environment.It’s common to leave the water running while you brush your teeth or wash the dishes, but how much less water would you waste if you carefully turned off the faucet?
