Welcome back to our blog! Have you joined the green movement yet? One major misconception about the green movement is that it costs a fortune to maintain. Which is further from the truth! Green living entails cutting back on things you do not actually need, which eventually saves you a fortune, not the other way round.
By using reusable bags and turning to other sustainable practices, you get to save the environment and save some cash too. Going green is not rocket science. You can make a huge difference in the world by making simple, little adjustments at home.
If you are yet wondering what these changes are, then this article was specially curated for you. At Eco Bravo, we do not only pride ourselves as being eco warriors, but we also take pride in teaching others little tricks to create a green and cleaner future. Yes, you do not have to break the bank to help save the world. You do not need to fly on the air in a cape either. You can save the world by effecting simple changes in your home.
Here are 5 little things that are sure to help you make a big difference in the environment:
1. Decorate Your Kitchen With Green Products
The kitchen is the heart of the home. It should be your starting point as you join the green movement. It is not enough to live and eat healthily. What are the products decorating your kitchen? What kind of cutlery do you use? Plastic? Well, all that should change already.
Besides the fact that these plastic materials are not healthy as kitchen wares, especially when they come in contact with hot foods, they are also contributing to the trillions of plastic waste we produce every year. It is time to consider other sustainable options such as Reusable Bamboo Cutlery Set, Reusable Beewax Food Wraps, Stainless Steel Lunch Box, Bamboo Dinnerware Kids Set, Coconut Bowls, and a load of others.
2. Patronize Natural Beauty Products
It is a well-established fact that most of our beauty products are packaged in plastic containers. However, it doesn’t have to be so. If may seem far-fetched but we can totally live without plastics and not feel the impact – besides having a cleaner and greener world to live in and saving more.
Make a pack to save yourself and your loved ones today. Eco Bravo is home to all your natural beauty products. From reusable sanitary pads to reusable makeup remover and bamboo cotton buds, we’ve got you covered!
3. Take Your Cup to the Office
A lot of people like coffee. You probably do too. A large number of office workers get a cup or two every workday. While drinking coffee isn’t going to affect the environment, the plastic cups used has a huge effect on the amount of
plastic waste created every year. Think about the number of disposable cups you have used this year. Now, multiply it by the number of workers in your firm.
Then, multiply the figure by the number of firms in your city – let’s not get to the entire country or the world in general yet. I guess it is needless to start calculating the number of plastic bottles and straws we use every month. A good way to curb this self-destructive habit is to take your cup with you the office. It won’t cost you a lot to get a Reusable Coffee Cup. You can also opt for Reusable Straws and bottles if you wish. By doing so, not only you will save some money and save the planet too.
4. Stick With Reusable Bags
It will amaze you to know that plastic is one of the major problems facing the world today. Being a cheap raw material, most of our products today are made of plastic. From kitchenware to bags, makeup and a ton of other things, you can absolutely find a trace of plastic everything you use.
No wonder scientists are scared that with the current trend, the number of plastics in water bodies will surpass the number of aquatic lives in there. By using reusable bags such as our Reusable Mesh Bag, you would save yourself a ton of money at the end of the year and reduce the amount of plastic waste produced every year. Why spend more on bags when you can reuse old bags?
5. Keep Your Home Clean and Green
One of the often ignored facts is that a great number of our household items are made of plastic. This is why plastic has the highest amount of waste every year. Keeping your home clean should be a recurring activity. What we fail to realize is that most of the cleaning materials contain some sort of plastic. From the cleaners to the spray bottle and bucket, we are surrounded by plastics.
This is why Eco Bravo took the time to find different alternatives for cleaning your home. From the spray bottle to the cleaners and cleaning cloths, you can totally replace them with eco-friendly options without breaking the bank. Even better, they are reusable, as such, can last for a very long time.
Going green is easier than you think. In fact, it is a cool way to save money while preserving the planet for future generations. Try out these sneaky tips and tell us your experience. We are eager to hear from you.
