20 small changes that can help save the planet

20 small changes that can help save the planet

A lot of us hate change or just like to use what we are familiar with but we all have a responsibility to make better choices and reduce our waste. I find a lot of information out there can make it seem very intimidating or like you have to drastically change your lifestyle but even a few small changes can make a big difference and they are easier than you think. Here are some I’ve done/plan to do that aren’t expensive and take minimal effort…

• stop using plastic straws

• use bars of soap

• check/use local recycling for household waste

• take tupperware to the deli

• get a reusable hot drinks cup

• have a meat free day(s)

• take canvas bags for fruit/veg when food shopping

• have a stash of tote bags in different sizes

• try using shampoo bars (lush ones smell amazing)

• use less cleaning products

• cloth nappies (even having a few to use in the house can save over 100 nappies a year going to landfill)

• moon cups/reusable tampon applicators/washable pads (a change I’ve yet to try eek!)

• check out charity shops for clothes/toys for kids

• don’t but stuff just because the gram told you to

• get a good water bottle rather than buying plastic bottles all the time

• use tote/paper bags for gifts rather than gift bags/wrapping paper

• buy local when you can

• get a silicone “sponge” for dishes (eBay!)

• use the car less

• set a good example for the next generation

And remember it takes all of us doing a little rather than a few of us doing it perfectly!

Ugh… don’t you just hate it when you get into one of those slumps where you doubt everything and just don’t know how to snap out of it?! I’ve been a bit like that lately and I am finally feeling a tad more motivated (yay!).  […]
