Going green is one of the easiest ways to live a better life and help others to live a greener life. Included below are fourteen steps to help you create a greener life on a daily basis.
Living a Greener Life
Every day we are putting our imprint on the earth. Our steps and our decisions reach beyond ourselves to affect the lives of those in the next generation. We influence their lives by our own actions.
Recycle, recycle, recycle.
Used clothing, used furniture, and re-purposed materials will make a big difference. Cutting down manufacturing costs, raw materials necessary, and a wide range of power use, recycling also cuts down on waste and on the footprint that we leave on the world.
While it might sound like a small thing, consider taking off your shoes off at the door.
The shoes you wear every day bring dirt, pollutants and outside debris into your home. This is a simple habit to develop that one can do every day, and it will eliminate the need to continuously vacuum the floors and mop up the dirt as well, saving both power and water.
This is a great way to live a greener life and help save costs at the grocery store. Whether you create an indoor herb garden, or a vegetable garden, you will be able to rest easy knowing you're providing a chemical free meal for your friends and family.
When you garden, use natural methods of gardening.
Keeping a little less chemicals in your immediate area is not only healthier, but it is also protecting the soil around you. Natural pest controls are easy to learn and even some insects can give that to you.
Instead, purchase a reusable water bottle that can be refilled at any time of the day or night. These are great for adults, children and even teenagers on the go. Consider giving one that can hold hot or cold water to each person in the home.
