Want to live sustainably but don't know what to do or where to start? Here are 5 ways YOU can live sustainably!
Recycle. You might have heard about this a little too much, but it's true! Recycling means reusing, not just throwing stuff away! You can do this by:
Taking plastic things like water bottles, jugs, etc., and making containers or other useful things out of them!
Going to a recycling center and giving your recyclables to them.
A second way you can live sustainably is by saving energy. You can do this by driving less, using less power and water, and in general, using less!
A third way you can live sustainably is to reduce water use. Now, this may sound like quite the undertaking, but you can do it with ease, and in many ways! You can do this by:
Getting aerator nozzles for your sinks and showers.
Taking less time in the shower.
Leaving the sink off when you are not using it.
A fourth way you can help is by reducing plastic usage. Plastic is very harmful to the environment, and reducing use helps tremendously! You can start reducing plastic use by using reusable bags and containers.
The fifth way to live more sustainably is to buy less. Buying less is essential to living sustainably. We vote with our dollars, so anything we buy we are essentially supporting that item. So, by reducing the stuff you buy, you reduce the amount of problems we'll have.
Now, with this knowledge, go and try to ask yourself, "Did I live sustainably today?"
