It’s not hard to see that being environmentally friendly and using sustainable products and services is on the rise, and rightfully so. Everyday we are bombarded with advertising that is more or less pushing consumerism down our throats and, the sad truth is, there is not too much we can do about it. It’s time to start Sustainable Living!
Fortunately, I learnt at a young age that you should try to be the change you want to see in the world. So that leads me to the question: What can we do?
First of all, let’s ditch out the consumer products that are just accumulating more waste, while getting rid of the ideology that we need to spend money on this stuff everyday. We don’t!
A classic example of this is shown in the case of the water bottle. Instead of buying a couple of water bottles everyday from your 7/11 or Woolworths or where ever it is you find yourself thirsty with a couple of extra bucks, why not just carry a reusable water bottle? Have you seen how many companies are bringing out cool looking water bottles these days? If not for the environmental side of things, do yourself a favour and get one of these things, they are AWESOME!.
Let’s focus on buying things that last and, if they don’t last, at least let’s invest in goods that are easily recyclable or biodegradable. In doing this we are at least making a conscious effort to clean up our act, as well as cleaning up the planet and taking a stand for the future.
Am I the only one who enjoys cleaning my body with a bar of soap? I’m sure the answer is no. Now, ask yourself how many bottles of body wash you go through in your household every couple of weeks. Multiply that by a billion. That’s how many of those bottles are going into landfills, or worse, our oceans. Just use a bar of soap! If you’re a true eco warrior this is a must. There are people out there making all kinds of amazing natural soaps that you can wrap around yourself.
It’s little changes like these that really add up. Its about raising awareness of the topic that no one wants to talk about. Our environment, our planet – she is sick and needs our help. So I ask that everyone takes into consideration the small changes you can make in your day-to-day life. This will make a benefit the world we live in.
