In today’s world, being environmentally conscious is becoming more and more important.It is crucial that we take steps now to reduce our waste and help preserve our beautiful earth not just for us but for future generations! Here are 7 ways that you can help achieve a less wasteful and more greener way of living!

    1. Ditch the plastic bags!
      Plastic bags are responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 marine animals. Get your hands on some reusable bags and keep them in your car, keep one in your purse for a quick little shop or even keep them by the door so you can grab them before you leave!
    2. Buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste.
      When you buy in bulk, not only do you save money but you also reduce the amount of packaging. This is a great way to reduce both clutter and trash in your home.
    3. Recycle those aluminium cans!
      There is no limit to how many times aluminium can be recycled! If an aluminium can ends up in a landfill, it will be there for 500 years.
    4. Donate unwanted items to your local charity.
      One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. By donating, you not only reduce clutter in your life, but you give to another’s life too!
    5. Don’t buy plastic bottles of water!
      Over 29 million bottles of water are purchased in America but only 13% get recycled every year. Invest in a nice travel water thermos!

    6. Invest in a decent travel mug!
      In the same vein as the previous point, ditch those one-use coffee cups! There’s so many cute and quality options for a travel mug that will reduce waste and save you money! Some coffee shops will give you a discount if you bring your own mug!
    7. Declutter at least once per year!
    8. You’ll be amazed at what you can find! It’ll give you the chance to donate some older items and you may find something you forgot you even had and reduce the chance that you’ll purchase something you didn’t need at all!

Together, we can all take steps to reduce waste in a life which will, in turn, help our planet.
