We all know that the planet is in trouble, and every bit we can do for the environment helps.

Although one person’s eco-friendly lifestyle won’t make much of a difference, millions of people together can have an impact.

You’re ready to take on the challenge.

Use these ideas to get started.

Start in Your Office:

An eco-friendly at home office is relatively easy to set up.

Choose energy-efficient equipment, use paper sparingly, and collect scrap paper for recycling.

Whenever you’re shopping for things you’ll use in your office, think things through up to their disposal.

Recycle as much as you can, and be sure to have e-waste collected by companies specializing in the safe disposal of electronics. You can stay eco-friendly at-home office.

Consumer Goods: Shop Mindfully

Regretfully, we still live in a society that throws way too many things away every year.

When buying items like clothing, shop for durability even if it costs you more.

Take your reusable shopping bags along, and avoid products with excessive packaging, particularly plastic packaging.

If you have the option, aluminum cans are better than plastic bottles.

All the same, plastic is ubiquitous. When you can’t avoid it, choose recyclable plastic whenever possible and ensure it ends up in the right hands when you dispose of it.

Keep Your Food Shopping Eco-Friendly:

Besides the fact that throwing food away is wasteful, it decomposes in landfills, adding to methane emissions.

Buy what you need and no more - this takes a bit of planning, but it can be a fun challenge.

Imported foods come with a huge carbon footprint, so whenever possible, choose local produce, and as always, aim to use minimal packaging, recyclable packaging, or biodegradable packaging.


Fuel efficiency is important if you care about the environment, and if you want to take eco-friendly motoring to the next level, electric vehicles are becoming quite affordable.

Plan your routes carefully to cut out unnecessary mileage, and when possible, walk, cycle, or use public transport.

For routine journeys like the school run, explore the potential for sharing rides with others.

Use Water Sparingly:

Fresh water is a precious resource that we’re all-too-likely to take for granted. Aside from the water itself, the infrastructure that purifies it and delivers it to your home uses a lot of energy.

There are many ways to save water, and none will make your life especially uncomfortable.

Set up your garden to limit the need for irrigation, don’t spray paving down when cleaning it, and shower instead of bathing - at least most of the time.

Checking your home for drips and leaks and having them attended to saves water and money, so be alert.

Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle:

The slogan says it all. Use fewer things, look for ways to reuse or repurpose items you might otherwise have discarded, and when you throw things away, recycle as much as possible.

It’s your way of contributing to a healthier future for your children and grandchildren, and it’s the right thing to do!

Our throw-away lifestyle can’t continue forever, and by caring for the environment, we’re also caring for our nearest and dearest.
