If you want to know how to transition towards eco friendly living, then you are in the right place.
Whether you want to go eco friendly to help save the environment, reduce your energy bills, or because you are tired of using so much plastic and waste, moving towards an eco friendly lifestyle is much easier than you think.
We have put together a few ideas to help you on your eco journey, so whether you are just going for baby steps, or you are going all out, this guide should help you.
First up on out list is electricity consumption. It goes without saying that every appliance you have on unnecessarily is wasted energy. This includes lights, computers, appliances and chargers. Just putting them on standby isn’t enough, make sure you switch off your devices and you will reduce your carbon footprint and save money at the same time.
Second up is food waste. Did you know that 7 million tonnes of food is wasted in the UK every year? It is a huge problem for all of us, and we can all start playing our part by being more careful about how much food we buy and by planning our meals.
Following on from this, our next guide is to get a compost heap going. If you do have a little bit of food that is left over or going to waste, don’t throw it in the bin! Start composting your organic waste and you will not only reduce methane production, you will also end up with your own natural fertiliser.
Last on the list is a big one. Try to cut down your use of plastic. This single step is one of the most important ones. Plastic is becoming a huge issue, and we are going to have to do something about it collectively, so start reducing your plastic use.
