How to Live an Eco-Friendly Lifestyle

The solar caps at the equator are melting, the sands of the Sahara Desert are spreading past their borders. The hot season is getting hotter, and the cold seasons are getting warmer. Contrary to what most people believe, the world is not coming to an end. The earth is just becoming unliveable, and we have made it so because of our numerous creations, inventions, and innovations.

We believe here at Eco Bravo that we all can rescue the earth and make our planet liveable if we are ready to adopt a responsible and sustainable lifestyle.

Here is how to live an eco-friendly lifestyle

Energy Conservation is Key

Energy conservation on your part might involve the little act of reducing your carbon footprint, turning off your light switch when you are not in the room, putting devices on standby mode when they are not in use. When these little acts become consistent, they become a habit, and those habits become a lifestyle that will save you money and eventually save our environment.

Encourage Food Conservation

To produce food that will cater to large populations, farmers often use fertilizers, pesticides, and other chemicals which damage the environment. All of these can be avoided with effective food conservation measures.

Encourage Recycling

The good news is that everything is recyclable. If everything is recyclable, it means everything is reusable. Before you dump anything in the trash, find out if they can be recycled.

Expose Yourself to Nature

To adopt an eco-friendlier lifestyle, you should opt for open windows during hot summers instead of air conditioners and on some days take a walk, take cold baths to cool off.

Endeavour to Fix Leaky Pipes

Energy Saving Equipment Should be Used

Eliminate Plastics Completely

Encourage Fixing Instead of Thrashing

The solution to this is to encourage fixing damaged items rather than thrashing them. When fixed, they can be pawned, sold, or given out to others who will need them. If this becomes a lifestyle, you will discover that you have become eco-friendlier.

Encourage Tree Planting

To live an eco-friendly lifestyle you need to plant trees if you can and if you can’t, ensure you plant shrubs, flowers and vegetables. By doing so, you will be doing the environment a lot of good.

Encourage Less Use of Paper

Encourage Composting

In conclusion, using LED lights, using eco-friendly products, making natural shampoos, and bath products. Hiking and biking instead of driving are daily lifestyle changes we can all adopt to have a greener and cleaner environment. Is an eco-friendlier environment possible? Yes, it is, but we are all responsible for it.
