By now, you’ve probably heard enough about how we need to save our one and only planet. But you probably have been hesitating on how you can go about contributing to the efforts of saving the earth. Sounds like quite a feat, doesn’t it? Well, we’re here to tell you that your journey to becoming an eco warrior does not have to be challenging. In fact, you can can be an eco warrior from home. Here are some top tips to help us all become little eco-warriors. It’s easier than you think, we promise.
Choose to refill
The first method is easy. Instead of buying a brand new bottle of product when you run out, choose to refill your typical household cleaning supplies. Better still, go with an eco-friendly choice. You can purchase a bottle of environmentally friendly product, use it up, and then replenish it as needed. It’s also less expensive than purchasing a new bottle!
Choose your shower products wisely
Even your morning shower may cause environmental damage. Many of the cleaning products we use on a daily basis include chemicals as well as hundreds of tiny beads that end up down the drain, in our water systems, and in the sea. However, there are several excellent natural skin care options available. They’re not only great for the environment, but they’re also healthier for your skin! So, the next time you’re out shopping for your daily essentials, remember to look out for an environmentally friendly label!
Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface, yet only 3% of it is freshwater, and the majority of that 3% is frozen beneath the Earth’s surface in ice, atmosphere, and soil. Only 0.007% of the Earth’s water is accessible to fuel and nourish the planet’s 6.8 billion inhabitants. As the population grows, this tiny amount of water must supply a larger number of people.
Furthermore, due to climate change-related droughts, water is becoming increasingly scarce, implying that there will be even less water to divide among us. Therefore, as much as you can, save water!
We’re not asking you to drink less water. Instead, you can try these methods:
- Keep your showers short
- Switch off the tap while brushing your teeth
- Install water-saving shower heads
- Check your toilet for leaks
- Only run the washing machine and dishwasher when you have a full load
