Be the Change You Want to See

Be the change you want to see—truer words have never been said, and when it comes to being environmentally aware, this change begins at home. Whether you know this or not, there are a lot of things that happen in our home, that affect the environment.

If you are on the path to be more aware about your environment, then this list of small but meaningful changes you can make is here to help:

  • Use less Paper – The first paperless change you can make is switch to digital news consumption. Digital is really a blessing in disguise, as it provides everything you need to be in touch with current affairs or your favorite sports team without hurting the trees that go into making paper. The less paper you use, the less paper needs to be produced and the more trees that get to fill our forests. By recycling one short ton (0.91 t) of paper you can save 17 mature trees. If you MUST use paper at work or at school, you can make a change by recycling the paper you use. It takes less energy to create paper through recycled and used sheets than by creating ‘virgin’ paper. Recycling is easy and one of the best ways to live green.
  • Switch to cloth – At home, if you use paper in the toilet – switch to washing with water and then wiping with a cloth. In the kitchen, use a kitchen towel that can be washed and reused. Use Fabric bags instead of plastic bags for when you go shopping to buy groceries. If you do get plastic bags, then don’t just put them in the trash, use them to collect the trash, instead of investing in garbage bags. Instead of using paper towels to clean around the house, cut up an old pair of jeans, or that old t-shirt and use it to clean around the house. These old rags will clean your house well, and can be reused.
  • Change your light bulbs – Switch your light bulbs or tubes to more energy efficient options. While they may be slightly more expensive than your current option, they will last longer, shine brighter, and save on your energy bill at home. In fact, you may end up using fewer light bulbs in the house, as the eco-friendly options are quite efficient! Don’t go running out and change all of them at once though – the ones you have on still work. Change them only when they need changing.
  • Use less energy in your house – In addition to using the energy efficient bulbs, be mindful and switch off the lights and appliances in the rooms that are not being used. If your washing machine or dishwasher need to be changed, then invest in appliances that use less electricity and water in their daily use. This will reduce your energy bill at home in the long run, while helping the environment today.

You can make a difference when you make small eco-friendly changes in your life. Living a greener lifestyle doesn’t have to be difficult. Plus, living eco-friendly will save you money! Get started living an eco-friendly life today.
