Simple ways to become more Sustainable
It’s time for all of us to get serious about sustainability.
Going green starts at home, and while separating paper from plastic in your recycling bin is a great first start, there are more steps you can take to be less wasteful and reduce your carbon footprint. In fact, by making small lifestyle changes, you may end up saving time and money in the long run while also encouraging healthier habits.
While going green might seem complicated, small, manageable actions can make a significant impact to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. Here are some Earth Day tips for you (feel free to share them with your friends and family!).
REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE IN YOUR KITCHEN
Swap plastic sponges for eco-friendly sponges made from Loofah, a natural fruit that comes from the cucumber family. This means they’re 100% compostable making them a greener cleaning alternative in your kitchen.
REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE
Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three “R’s” to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
AVOID DISPOSABLE PLASTIC
Did you know that single-use plastic takes more than 500 years to decompose?! In the meantime, straws, plastic bags, and six-pack rings continue to pollute the environment and hurt marine life.
It’s time to use disposable plastic alternatives, such as items made of wood, glass, ceramic, or stainless steel. Our tin candle collection can be recycled into great planters and useful storage pots!
“GREENIFY” YOUR HOME OFFICE
If you work from home, you can make some green improvements in your home office. This includes reducing paper use, installing LED lighting, properly recycling office materials, and investing in energy-efficient office appliances. Working remotely is also a powerful way to lower your carbon footprint!
MAKE SUSTAINABLE SWAPS ONE STEP AT A TIME
Where you can make a difference depends on your lifestyle. Some people love their to-go coffee, while others clean their ears often. Having a more eco-friendly lifestyle is really about taking a good look at the things you bring into your home and throw out, and just replacing or eliminating one thing at a time.
Switch up your old toxic candles and replace them with Chic&Raw’s luxury crystal candles. All of our candles are 100% Natural, organic, hand-poured, eco-soybean wax.
SMALL CHANGES ARE KEY FOR A GREENER LIFESTYLE
When converting your household over to healthy and environmentally conscious products, do so in small increments. Changing everything at one time can be overwhelming and costly. Consider changing products over in one area at a time, such as the kitchen or bathroom.
Think about all of the toxic products in your home and start replacing the ones that seem easiest, like your skincare and bathing products! Why not try out our Pamper, Spa & Ahhh?
