Do you want to know how to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle? Most of us would love to do more for the environment than we currently do; we just are not sure what we can do to help. We are aware of the need to recycle and re-use what we can, and to use products with no toxins, but beyond that, we are not really environmentally aware. But if we all made the correct changes, most of which are small, the planet would be a much healthier, happier place, and we would stand a chance of saving it for our children and grandchildren.
One of the best things you can do is to buy environmentally friendly products,
especially for cleaning the house.
So many household products are toxic and can result in toxins getting into the ground and affecting the water we drink. Fortunately, there are plenty of toxin free, earth friendly cleaning products available on the market today, and you can get many of them in your local grocery stores. Seventh Generation is a wonderful brand, as is E-cover, and there are others. Use them, and do your part to help keep the planet healthy.
You can also use solar power more often.
This is a clean sort of power that does not use fossil fuels or oils at all. You can start with small solar items, such as lights that you can put out in your yard, and then eventually move into the full solar panels for your entire house. While you are waiting to install solar panels, you can turn down your thermostat in the winter and turn it up in the summer, or better yet, do not use it at all.
Besides that, you can buy organic cotton clothing and organic foods, as well as Fair Trade products that help indigenous people create their own sustainable incomes and revitalize their communities. So, you see, there is plenty that you can do to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle. You just need to put your plan into action and you will soon be doing your part and then some to save this beautiful planet on which we all live.
