Filed under : General Health

In our chaotic daily existence simple green options could assist in getting on the path to a greener year ahead. Smaller strides are all that is required to attain greater and bigger aspirations.

  • While washing dishes unconsciously the tap is left on when one is scrubbing them leading to unnecessary water wastage. So in the case while brushing teeth the water is left running when one brushes or while showering during shampooing or soap lathering. Nearly twenty to forty gallons of water gets used up during a 4-minute lasting shower session. There are myriad of ways to conserve water though the most basic of which is to turn off running water when not needed.
  • Merely adjusting the thermostat by even one to two degrees can help in saving potentially well past 100 dollars in heating and even electricity billing all through the year.
  • green living tipsChoosing healthy food choices like consuming organic fruits and veggies, reducing or if possible even eliminating meat product intake in one’s dietetic intake, avoiding foods that have undergone processing or fast foods, abolishing sweets among several other green facets that would be beneficial to both you and the environment.
  • Halt the purchase and use of plastic-based serving dishes, crockery and straw. Rather investing in recyclable and environmentally friendly supplies would be a prudently green choice. Throwaway serving dishes that are created from discarded foliage could be a great substitute. Even swapping plastic straws for a glass variety would be a sturdier, long-lasting and green alternative.
  • Vehicle owners should properly maintain their modes of transport by taking regular care of them involving frequent oil changing; rotate and keep tyres appropriately filled with air, choosing verified fuel additives among several other measures could aid in prolonging longevity of the vehicle alongside improving fuel savings and lowering emissions.
  • Recycling or re-using or donating is the green mantra. Simply glance around your dwelling for items that are no longer used, needed or wanted, old kiddie play things, unwanted Christmas presents or old or not worn clothes. Avoid clobbering one’s home with unnecessary stuff that could easily be of use to someone else or be re-gifted or recycled or even sold off.
  • Ultimately, making one’s own innate cleansing supplies that are perfume, dye, chemical or toxin-free. Some helpful natural cleansers are:
    • green living productsBaking soda
      Ideal refrigerator, microwave de-odorising agent, great to clean bathtub, sink, oven, counter top, ridding sweat smells by adding a half cup while doing laundry, sprinkling it on carpeting  prior to vacuuming for deodorizing it.
