5 Easy Eco-Friendly Habits You Can Adopt Now
Happy Earth Month, Influensters! We think it’s the perfect time to celebrate just how beautiful mother nature is. And what better way to show our appreciation than switching up our daily routines to make this world a little bit greener? We promise, all it takes is making small changes in order to make a big difference.
1. CARPOOL OR WALK TO SCHOOL AND WORK
Reduce your carbon footprint by carpooling to school or walking to class. Not only are you saving major mula on gas, but you can get a little social hour and exercise in. Invest in some Nike shoes, they’re amazingly comfortable AND Nike is on the map for being a major eco-friendly company, they even include recycle polyester in many of their designs -- extra bonus points!
2. BOTTLE YOUR OWN WATER
It's no doubt that you always want to stay hydrated. Consistently buying water bottles can not only get pricey, but it’s also a major no-no when it comes to conservation and waste! Try getting in the habit of keeping a water bottle handy and refilling whenever there’s a water fountain nearby, this will help you save money and the Earth all at once!
3. BUY PRODUCTS WITHOUT PACKAGING
Let’s be honest, most of the products you buy don’t need a package anyway. That goes for eyeshadow palettes, shampoo bars, and a few others. Start switching up your shopping list and head for stores like Lush Cosmetics or Rae Cosmetics that rarely use packaging. If you can't imagine parting with your packaging consider supporting retailers that make packaging out of recyclable materials.
4. INVEST IN A CONTROLLABLE THERMOSTAT
It’s all about control! Setting back your thermostat when you’re out for the day or gone for the weekend saves a ton energy and more money in your pocket! Believe us, controllable thermostats are the only way to go for anyone looking to save money and energy.
5. OPT FOR NON-AEROSOL SPRAYS
Instead of using bad-for-the-environment chemicals and synthetic fragrances, use non-aerosol sprays to go about your daily routine. This goes for air fresheners, deodorant, and even hair sprays!
