Sustainable living doesn't mean living without luxuries but being conscious of your resource consumption and minimising your impact on the environment.
Humans are integral to securing the future of Earth and sustainability should be at the forefront of every individual. In honour of Earth day, we have outlined some guiding principles which can be used to reduce your carbon footprint and make sustainable living a reality.
Whether a home is a small apartment or a large house, there is plenty that can be done to make it more environmentally friendly.
Conserve Energy: energy production accounts for 21.3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide along with 90% of greenhouse released into the environment every year. Reducing overall household energy can help decrease your carbon footprint.
Go Paperless: on average, 31 kilogram of junk is delivered to our home every year. Reducing the amount of paper which is mailed to us will benefit the environment.
Go Green: having more greenery around the house can balance out your CO2 emissions Planting gardens and having plants around the house can help the environment.
Waste: reduce, reuse and recycle products to practice sustainability.
Emissions from vehicular transportation are amongst the top most polluting gases, however there are ways to help reduce that.
Groceries: plastic takes hundreds of years to decompose and is often attributed to the diminishing of aquatic life.
Fashion: fashion and textiles is the third most polluting industry in the world.
Take a moment to think about our planet this Earth Day and how you can help protect it. Go green— live a lifestyle mother nature would be proud of.
