Climate change is a serious threat that we often ignore. But it’s about time we change our lifestyle and start making sustainable life choices to ensure our future generations live on a safe planet. A few simple lifestyle changes are enough to contribute toward a safer and sustainable planet.
Here are just some of the many things you can do to help save the environment in simple ways.
Install energy-efficient lighting at your home
It can cut energy usage by 75% and last for up to 10 years! By switching out all incandescent bulbs with LEDs, you could prevent more than 100 million metric tons of CO2 emissions every year. You can also help save energy and preserve the environment by turning off your computer and lights when you leave a room. A single vacant room can use up to 190 watts of power, so it’s easy to make a difference!
Try taking public transportation or carpooling with school or work colleagues rather than taking your car. Or, if you don’t like the idea of meeting people for carpooling or using public transport, try walking or cycling to work. It’s great exercise and saves 100% on gas!
Grow your own food
Growing one’s fruits and vegetables is an easy way to be part of the solution as well as saving money on some quality food products. Pick up a few berry bushes and a couple of fruit trees, and you can supply yourself with all the healthy food you can eat. You can also save water by installing a rain-catching system that feeds into your garden. Just make sure to take care of it!
Use Reusable bags and bottles
Using reusable shopping bags instead of paper or plastic is a great way to do your part to help the environment. Also, it would help to avoid bottled water; instead, store a few reusable bottles in your refrigerator and reduce plastic wastage.
Use nonplastic disposable products
Using nonplastic disposable products can also be an easy way to tread lightly on the environment. These days there are so many safe options for disposing and composting your waste.
The easiest way to reduce waste is to make your compost or worm composting bin. You can use this to dispose of your kitchen scraps. It’s the perfect way not only to keep your home clean and improve the environment! Also, make sure that you buy compostable disposable products that can break down with 12 weeks!
