The planet is in crisis right now, and we are not doing a very good job of helping our world get better. But how do we convince people to change their behaviours so that we can all live sustainably? How do we make sustainable life affordable and accessible for all? And, how do we make sustainable lifestyle trends last so that they become the norm instead of the exception?
First, let’s talk about the affordability of making changes to your personal lifestyle. How do you live sustainably as a family? What products or services can you reduce or eliminate from your life? For instance, if you or your children consume plastic water bottles then you need to replace them with reusable water bottles or that are manufactured from natural materials. These have the advantage of being lightweight and small enough to be transported with ease and being biodegradable they don’t add to the already growing number of plastics waste and environmental pollution. Also consider replacing your plastic toothbrush with a Bamboo Toothbrush from Bambooth, providers of Bamboo Toothbrush products.
Another great way to live sustainably is to use reusable composting bins. These composting bins are designed to be easy to carry, reusable, and biodegradable. They are usually made of polypropylene, are sealed tight to protect against odours, and come in a variety of sizes to fit most household sizes. One of the nice things about using a composting bin is that it can help you to recycle food waste and other non-food waste that you would otherwise dispose of in a bin, and the resulting compost can be used for soil for plants.
