Sustainability should begin at home

We’re heading towards times that call on us for taking stringent measures to save our planet. Going eco-friendly is the only way forward if we have to leave our future generations with clean air, water, and soil to grow their food.

The best of us wonder about how best we could contribute to bringing in this change. Actually, sustainability is not as complex as we make it out to be. The simplest way one should go about it is by starting at home. One step at a time and you’ll be bringing in big results in the long run.

Listed below are a few everyday hacks that are quite doable and can bring in a big difference to our environment.

Replace Cloth with Plastic and Paper

Reduce or eliminate paper product use. Paper towels and napkins can be easily replaced with cloth towels and napkins. A weekly trip through the washing machine and you’re good to go.

For those paper products you do use like face tissues and toilet paper, consider buying paper with recycled paper content. A reusable cloth shopping bag would save us from using innumerable disposable bags that would eventually end up as plastic waste.

In fact, taking a step further try and substitute cloth with plastic and paper wherever you can in your day to day life.

Abeego’s Beeswrap is a perfect substitute for plastic cling wraps. Whether it’s keeping your herbs green, sandwiches fresh, or your spinach crunchy, these breathable, reusable, and antibacterial cloth wraps are the best way to reduce plastic waste.

CoffeeSock’s Coffee Cone Filter, Tea Sock and Nut Milk Filter, bring you reusable filters made from organic cloth. Cotton imparts no flavor on the finished brew, unlike paper. Easy to clean up and durable, these are made by happy humans for a fair and living wage.

Use Reusable Containers

Take your own mug with you to your favorite coffee shop. They might even discount your drink if you do so. Don’t drink bottled water. The plastic bottles are only minimally recycled (approximately 30%) the water quality is oftentimes unregulated and the cost of bottled water is 100s of times higher than filtered tap water.
