Living a more sustainable life can be very simple. You do not need to go to extraordinary lengths to be eco friendly in your living, just have to be an eco conscious consumer.
1) Use a Travel Mug Over Disposable Plastic Cups For Your Tea/Coffee
The environmental benefits of reusable cups are huge. Many components of disposable paper or cardboard cups are extremely harmful, and they have a negative impact on the environment. Some of the major environment-based benefits of reusable glass cups is not necessarily with the parts included, but with the parts not included.
2) Go Grocery Shopping With Reusable Bags Instead Of Plastic
If we choose reusable bags we can manufacture fewer plastic bags, which will cut carbon dioxide emissions. It may be a small contribution, but we need to do all we can to avoid catastrophic climate change; every little helps.
3) Use A Water Filter Instead Of The Plastic Gallon Bottles
Filtered water through your tap is better for the environment than bottled water. Using bottles creates excess waste in landfills, and BPA can be leeched into your water bottles. Filters are ideal for conserving plastic, reducing your impact on the environment and being more eco-friendly for the planet and yourself. There are endless environmental positives to using a filtration system instead of bottles.
4) Choose Stationery That Has Been Recycled Or Has Eco-decomposing Properties
Onyx & Green is committed to creating high quality stationary made using eco friendly materials, mostly recycled or natural. It is the first brand of its kind to introduce whole stationary ranges from pencils to notebooks to bags created from materials made from post-consumer and post-industrial waste as well as sustainable materials such as bamboo, stone and cornstarch. The aim to protect the environment does not stop there, all packaging used is made from recycled materials too and often printed with soy based inks.
5) Be Conscious Of How You Dispose Waste. Separate Paper And Plastic Before Throwing It Away
When you recycle the waste instead of sending it to the landfills, you are directly reducing the pollution. Further, recycling various products leads to less carbon emissions, reducing the carbon footprint of that product.
