With more awareness of our role in how the earth survives, most of us are starting to consider sustainable living ideas – whether in our home or lifestyle. It seems easily attainable but for many applying the practices can be difficult. There is so much information out there to digest that it can be hard to know where to start. Our best advice is to start small. Look around you and brainstorm ways you can make a sustainable decision that doesn’t require purchasing anything extra. Little wins can encourage you to make bigger changes. We have listed some small, but manageable, changes you can instill into daily practices.
When food has to travel between cities, states, and even countries, the earth has to pay the prices from over fertilization for increased mass production to carbon emission. Buying local food helps alleviate this immensely. Local farmers can be more intentional with how they farm. Most times they produce in small batches, reducing waste and travel time. This is a great way to also support your local small businesses.
Sometimes, we think so much about the big picture and forget the little things. When you’re trying to live a more sustainable/clean life, your cleaning products are worth looking at. By making a practice of reading ingredient labels, it will help you to decide what brands you should invest in and which ones to stay away from. For linens, we recommend replacing your softener with white vinegar.
Start small and enjoy the little wins through these sustainable living ideas.
