If you are tired of living a wasteful lifestyle and are resolved to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle this year, you might feel a little overwhelmed about all of the big changes in your life.
Starting something new can be stressful when you are unsure where to begin. it’s also very common for people to do things that harm the environment, without even realizing it.
Rest assured, you have already completed the most difficult step – deciding to make a change.
Focus on smaller changes you can make easily before you tackle the more difficult steps of your eco-friendly resolution. Here are some easy and small changes you can make in your everyday life to help live a more eco-friendly lifestyle:
On the surface this means abandoning your electronics and enjoying more traditional activities that require less energy usage. However, if you really want to reduce your carbon footprint, you need to unplug your electronics.
Many electronic devices — like televisions and battery chargers — are known as vampire electronics because they suck energy even when not in use. Unplugging these electronics eliminates this waste.
You can also cut the excess by plugging your electronics into a power strip and turning the strip off.
for exemplo I’m a huge culprit of leaving my laptop in sleep mode overnight, and I hardly ever turn it off completely. If it’s on, it’s using energy. And if you don’t like dealing with the time it takes to turn back on, a lot of computers have an option to set a time for it to automatically boot back up!
2. Eco fashion friendly
They say the clothes make the (wo)man and your clothes are an excellent opportunity to showcase your green lifestyle.
Avoid jumping on every new fashion trend that comes out and look for garments made from organic materials instead. If your shirt or pants rip, reach for the needle and thread instead of throwing them away. A quick patch job can save you money and protect the environment as well (More eco-friendly).
3.Reduce Water Waste
As climate change brings more intense droughts, we should take a good look at our water habits.
You can live a more eco-friendly lifestyle by using less water and cutting back on your bottled water purchases.
Shower at a colder temperature to reduce your water heater usage.
Finally, don’t forget to turn the water off when brushing your teeth or shaving and use the lights only when you absolutely must.
