Benefits of Sustainable Living
Conservation of Natural Resources
By being mindful of the waste you create and using fewer resources, you can help protect the planet’s resources for future generations.
By using natural products, you reduce exposure to harmful chemicals. By eating a healthy and nutritious diet and by growing your fruits and vegetables, you can improve your health and keep several lifestyle diseases at bay.
Lower Electricity Bills
By taking simple measures such as turning off lights and electronics when not in use, using energy-efficient light bulbs, and adjusting the thermostat, you can reduce your energy consumption. These responsible steps will not only lower your electricity bills but also reduce your carbon footprint.
5 Products to Help You Begin Your Journey Towards Sustainable Living
Sustainable products are those that are made from natural, renewable, or recycled materials, that have minimal environmental impact, and that can be reused or composted after use. One of the easiest ways to start living sustainably is to use sustainable products in our daily lives. Here are five products that you can start with to embrace sustainable living:
1. Wooden Utensils
Wooden articles are durable, biodegradable, and aesthetically pleasing. Opt for wooden utensils instead of plastic ones whenever possible. Use wooden spoons and straws instead of plastic ones which can take hundreds of years to decompose. Use a bamboo brush as a natural and eco-friendly alternative to plastic brushes. Bamboo is a fast-growing plant and therefore can be harvested without harming the environment.
2. Neem Wooden Combs
A Neem wood comb is a natural and eco-friendly alternative to plastic combs. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help prevent scalp infections and dandruff. It also reduces hair fall by promoting blood circulation in the scalp.
3. Glass Bottles
Glass bottles are reusable, recyclable, and versatile. Use glass bottles instead of plastic bottles as they are easy to clean and sterilize, and don’t leach harmful chemicals into the contents. Reusable glass bottles are a sustainable and stylish option for storing water, juice, milk, oil, vinegar, and other liquids.
A loofah is a natural sponge made from the dried fruit of a tropical vine. Try using a loofah as a natural alternative to a synthetic sponge. It can be used for scrubbing the body, face, or dishes. It exfoliates the skin, removes dead cells and dirt, and improves blood circulation. It’s biodegradable and can last for several months with proper care.
5. Compost Accelerator
Managing waste is key to living a sustainable lifestyle. A compost accelerator is a product that speeds up the decomposition of organic waste into compost. By adding it to your compost bin you can turn your food and garden waste into valuable fertilizer for your garden in a matter of weeks instead of months or years.
