5 Ways You Can Live Sustainably

When it comes to sustainable, eco-friendly living, it may seem that we have to take arduous steps that would probably cost us a lot of money. Fortunately, it’s not as difficult as you think and you will, in fact, save costs! Here are 5 ways for sustainable living:

Reduce, reuse, recycle – This never gets old. Got a lot of plastic shopping bags? Reuse them for trash collection. Paper shopping bags can be repurposed for arts & crafts.

Wash with eco-friendly detergent – The Liquid Laundry Detergent from bio-home is non-toxic, and uses plant-based active ingredients. You can get effective washing results without splurging on expensive detergent brands.

Switch off unused electronic appliances – If you are not using your electronic appliances, remove the plug from the live socket. If a device is not plugged in, you save on electricity, shaving off a few dollars off your utility bill.

Do some gardening – Consider growing your own vegetable patch. You can grow a lot of vegetables indoors. What’s more, it refreshes your home, keeping it well-ventilated. Great weekend project for the kids too.

Use alternate modes of transportation – Ride your bike or walk to nearby places. Take public transportation where possible. This saves on fuel and auto maintenance, and even gets you fitter!
