We’ve all been hearing about the state the Earth is in thanks to us dear humans. I know I sometimes get a little guilt over the ways I could perhaps be more earth-conscious and here are a few tips I’ve picked up.
Sometimes I’ve been lazy. I’ve shoved everything in my kitchen bin and not thought about the damage this can do. Why not take the time to recycle more? Create a separate bin bag to pop your plastics and recyclables in. It’s easy.
Choose Environmentally Friendly Products
Face Wipes, Baby Wipes etc etc, have all been known the have plastic in them and be especially bad for the environment. Nowadays, companies are become much more savvy in the way they produce their products. As a serial baby wipe user I have felt more than guilty over the damage done by my bubba and I with the use of paper nappies alike. We’ve made a small change to use Aqua Wipes. These fully biodegradable baby wipes are more than 99% purified water with an organic aloe vera extra formulation. They use ZERO plastic based materials and are registered with the vegan society. They smell great, feel great and do a cracking job cleaning up your babies mess (or your makeup). You can buy them on Amazon here.
Reduce Water Waste
Do you have one of those swanky rain collectors in your garden for watering the plants? Don’t worry if not. You can pop the plug in your shower in and reuse that water instead. Just one small way to be a little more conscious of our water consumption.
Or even the bus! There are ways you can reduce your emissions by not driving to the shops/work. I try and walk more with Jasper anyway as it’s easier with a buggy to lean on. If you’re unable to walk distances then the bus or carpooling may be an option for you.
Donate Wasted products/Clothing
Thinking about binning that tin of chickpeas that you haven’t used? Think again, donate it to your latest homeless shelter. Perhaps you’re clearing out your wardrobe and considering binning that over washed dress? Think again. Donate it to the charity shop. Someone will get use out of it!
Have you got any tips on ways to better the environment that are easy to do?
