5 Changes To Make To Help Save Our Planet

If you're worried about the good you're doing for the environment and you want to make some changes then don't worry, you have definitely come to the right place. With so many incredible ways to help save our planet, it's easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to getting started. Whether you're reducing the amount of plastic you're using or shopping in environmentally-friendly stores, every little bit helps. With that in mind, here are 5 changes you can make to help save our planet:

- Reduce The Amount Of Plastic You're Using

One of the best ways to do your bit for the environment is to ensure you're reducing the amount of plastic you are using. Whether this means carrying around a stainless steel water bottle or buying fresh fruit and veg from the market, plastic is non-recyclable and should be used as little as possible. Whilst it may take some time to get used to, cutting down on single-use plastics is a great first step to take.

- Reduce The Amount Of Meat And Dairy You're Eating

Although some people rely on meat and dairy for their diet, cutting down on the quantities you're eating is a great way to help the planet. If you can't cut down completely, you might want to consider trying Meat-free Monday's or eating vegan meals once or twice a week. If you start small, you can start to build up from there.

- Consider Using Vegan Makeup Products

If you use a lot of makeup products and you're worried about whether or not they're cruelty-free, you may want to consider switching to vegan makeup only. Although it can be more expensive, you can be sure you're doing your bit for the environment with each and every purchase.

- Shop At Local, Environmentally-Friendly Stores

To make an even bigger impact on your shopping habits, why not shop at local environmentally-friendly stores? Although you may not be able to get everything you need, you will be able to pick up pasta, pulses and grains. In some stores, you will also find that you're able to purchase fresh fruit, bread and cereal. As environmentally-friendly stores grow in popularity, so will the options that are available to you.

- Recycle As Much As You Possibly Can

Finally, if you are unable to use environmentally-friendly products at all times, you need to make sure you're recycling the products that you can. With plenty of opportunities to recycle both at home and on the go, you have no excuse to recycle everything you're using. If you’re struggling, make sure you check whether or not something is recyclable first.

  1. These are fantastic tips for how to help contribute to saving our planet. I really wish that less things were packaged in plastic, but we recycle when we must purchase these things. One thing for those that do not have refrigerators with a water dispenser is to buy a water cooler. We bought one 4 years ago and it is the best thing ever! It saves us from buying water bottles, we use stainless steel bottles when we leave the house.
