Sustainable, eco-friendly habits (and a few products) that will put some extra cash in your wallet.
If you want to live more sustainably, don’t put too much pressure on yourself to change all of your habits overnight. Focus on making one smaller change at a time. So, with this list the top ways that you can live a greener way of life, while also saving money!
1. Turn off the tap
It’s an all-too-common habit to leave the tap running while washing your face, brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, and so on. Sure, the tap might get a little soapy if you turn it off while lathering your hands, but think of it like turning off a light when it’s not being used—it’s simple, brings no inconvenience, and saves a lot of resources in the long run.
2. Urban Homesteading
Building a garden in your backyard is a wonderful way to give back to the environment. You can grow all sorts of vegetables, fruits and even herbs without having to use too much space. For those who live in apartment buildings, there are many different ways to use your balcony to grow the same types of produce.
3. Sew It
The clothing industry requires a lot of power to run its factories, ship its products and sell them in stores in your local mall. Purchasing your own low-energy, sewing machine can help you to mend and save the clothes you already own and allow you to repurpose clothing you can find at your local thrift store.
4. Line dry your clothes.
Dryers don’t even come with an “Energy Star” rating—that’s how bad they are in terms of energy consumption. Line or rack drying your clothes saves a ton of energy and therefore prevents air and water pollution from power plants.
5. Turn It Off
When your devices are fully charged and you’re not using your TV, unplug and switch them off. Sometimes we can get a little lazy switching off our devices and forgetting to unplug them, but over time, this can make a big difference to your electricity bill, and to the environment.
