Lessen intake of meat
While becoming vegan or vegetarian is the best option, for some getting rid of meat altogether is too difficult for a plethora of reasons. So instead of feeling guilty for something that can’t be controlled why not just lessen your existing intake of meat? Instead of eating meat everyday, try 3 times a week. If everyone decreased their consumption of meat even a little, we can lessen damage to our environment because as EPA states that “about 24 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions are from agriculture or the cultivation of crops and livestock.”
You know the drill! We’ve been taught this all through school, but how many of us actually sort through our rubbish everyday? Something as simple as sorting out the recycling pile can help decrease amounts of landfill, which will definitely help our environment. So make sure to check what you can or can’t recycle, because it’s not just paper - try out this link.
The trend that’s here to stay. Buy less and buy things that you know you’ll really love. This in turn will create less landfill because you won’t be throwing away as much. So this is the time to invest in that Chanel bag - it’ll definitely last a while!
Goodbye to those one time use straws, bottles etc and welcome to reusable ones. You can buy a super cute bottle with glass straws - stylish and sustainable. We love that for you, and highly recommend you purchase more reusable equipment.
All of that food waste that you’d throw away anyway, can be used as fabulous plant food! You can do this indoors or outdoors, and this really helps decrease more rubbish being made as it’s just being recycled for plants and produce to flourish!
