Easy ways to go green in 2018

go-green-1

As we become more aware of the impact that our lifestyle has on Mother Earth, people are starting to pay attention to being eco-friendly.

Going green might seem like a difficult and costly endeavour, but it doesn’t have to be! With a few simple adjustments, you can easily go green in the New Year.

  • Start a compost pile in your backyard. This will save money on fertilisers, maintain soil health, and those food scraps in your compost pile won’t end up rotting in a dump producing methane.

  • Do your research on recycling companies in your community and make it a habit to sort your recyclable materials so you can easily take them to the nearest recycling plant.
  • Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins at dinner.
  • Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Put your lamp, TV, cable box, charger etc, on a power strip and shut it off when not in use. Or, use a “smart” power strip that senses when appliances are off and cut vampire energy use.
  • Make your own cleaning products. It’s easy and cost-effective to make non-toxic cleaning products at home with a few simple ingredients such as baking soda and lemons.
  • Bring your own reusable bags when you go shopping.

  • Turn off the water while you’re brushing your teeth; letting the tap run during the recommended brushing time can waste up to five gallons of water a day. Also turn the tap off when washing your hands, face or doing the dishes.
  • Opt for reusable water bottles that are BPA free or stainless steel. Buying bottled water just adds to the global plastic problem. It takes three times the amount of water in a water bottle to make just one and most of them don’t get recycled.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables in a large bowl and reuse the water on your plants.
  • Carpool whenever possible. Carpooling saves gas and means fewer cars on the road—which means less fossil fuel emissions polluting the air.
  • Use compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL). They consume about 75% less electricity and last up to 10 times longer.
