Being environmentally friendly is not just limited outdoors.
It can also be done at home. In fact, it should be first practiced indoors.
Here are some ways to practice green living at home:
- Triple Rs. Reduce, reuse, recycle is more than just a policy. It’s a way to practice green living in the healthiest way possible. Reducing the use of plastics can help you, your family, and everyone around you prevent diseases that come from inhaling smoked plastic. Reusing plastics or any other materials from old things can be made into new things, even used for another 8 years. On the other hand, recycling plastics or any other materials from old things can be used for different purposes, even sold to junk shops to further realize its new potential.
- Segregate trash. Some people might take this green living practice for granted, but trust me – it’s one of the most effective ways to “fully” master the art of green living at home. You see, segregating your trash into biodegradable or non-biodegradable will not only make you realize the importance of having environmental rules and special policies. It will also make you realize the importance of your role in taking care of our one and only home: Mother Nature.
- Eat healthy foods. And by healthy foods, it means eating more fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, or whole grains. As for drinks, why not make them at home rather than just buying juice or smoothies in tetra packs? You can either masticate the juices or simply create a new smoothie recipe, which you can eventually share to your loved ones –further inspiring them to become fit and healthy. Even more so, it will help your body get the kind of energy needed to perform various tasks throughout the day.
So, these are only some of the ways to practice green living at home. Always remember, green living is something that can’t be mastered overnight. It can only be achieved if you are truly willing and determined enough to practice all these until it becomes a good habit of yours.
Furthermore, green living is something that can’t be entirely called a lifestyle. The reason for this is simple. It only becomes a “full” lifestyle if you’re only practicing it for yourself. But since you’re also practicing green living for your loved ones, it’s safe to assume that you truly are living your life to the fullest by simply being eco-friendly.
