Sustainability is a buzzword nowadays.

Reduce-Reuse-Recycle mantra, may feel retro, but it’s just as important today as when the phrase was first coined.

It might be a trend, but it’s not one that will go out of fashion.

Living sustainably means adapting our lives so that we avoid further depletion of the earth’s natural resources. From conserving water and improving air quality, to taking care of the natural world so that forests can soak up carbon dioxide and wildlife can thrive, there is so much we can help with.

Everything you do in your day-to-day life has an impact on the planet, from the food you eat to the car you drive. This doesn’t mean you should only eat vegetables and start riding a bike everywhere. Although, you could try consuming less meat and only driving when necessary.

It’s small changes like these which could help you to lessen your environmental impact.

Here are a few sustainable lifestyle tips:

  • Save energy. By using less energy, you can help to reduce carbon emissions
  • Eat less meat
  • Use reusable alternatives
  • Go paperless
  • Use renewable energy
  • Recycle and reuse
  • Plant seeds
  • Grow your own produce
  • Donate unused items

Living a more sustainable life means leaving a few conveniences behind, but it’s so worth it in the long run. Eventually, you’ll adjust to the new way of life and be able to sleep better at night, knowing you’re making a positive change for the planet you call home.
