If you have noticed that one of the latest trends is going for eco-friendly habits, you should know that this happens for a reason. Our planet gets polluted every day, that’s why altering some of our routines is of such huge importance. With a few small sacrifices in your manners, you can help nature more than you can imagine. Green trends are true money-savers and it is so simple to get used to following them. Do you want to find out more? Take a look at these reasonable practices you should benefit from every day:


  • Choose eco-friendly transport – if driving is like second nature to you, you should know that your vehicle’s toxic emissions are among air’s most persistent pollutants. Surely you feel comfortable in your four-wheeled transport, but other options shouldn’t be underestimated. Consider using more  means of transportation like public transport or even better- invest in a decent bicycle. You would not only help with the air pollution problem, but you would also get in excellent physical shape in no time.


  • Abandon plastic water bottles – plastic that doesn’t get recycled poses a great danger to polluting water sources to a terrifying extent. Drinking bottled water is a habit that wouldn’t cost you a lot to reject. Just purchase a reusable water bottle produced by eco-friendly, harmless materials. As for the water at home, there is no need for you to use huge bottles of water when you can simply rely on the faucet. If water quality bothers you, benefit from a water refiner or filters. In case you are away from your place and you forget to take your reusable water with, insist on purchasing water in a glass bottle.


  • Recycle – it may take you a while to get used to that habit, but once you learn how to recycle, you would feel very good about yourself. Nothing beats the feeling of being responsible by doing the right thing, so start recycling right away. Some cities have a recycling system of their own, but in case yours doesn’t take care of recycling by yourself. Separate your trash appropriately and make sure you are fully aware of the basics that green process requires. Let anyone at home know that from now on they should stick to recycling as well.


  • Consider tree planting – even young kids are familiar with the benefits of having more trees around. Simple biology tells you that trees cleanse the air by absorbing carbons and producing oxygen. The purer the air, the better, so why don’t you think about multiplying the number of trees in your backyard? If you live in an apartment, you don’t have that option, but you can always take part in an eco-friendly initiative related to improving nature’s condition.


  • Shop second-hand – many of you would probably reject the idea of using someone else’s objects, but don’t be so quick with the decision. Being a consumer means that you constantly purchase brand-new items while you can reuse old ones, which is such a great loss of resources. A TV or a smartphone, even your drapes can be bought second-hand, thus saving not only cash but precious resources too. In the same time, you can sell or donate stuff you no longer need, so that another person can continue the idea of saving our energy and water supplies.


  • Consume less energy – decreasing the amount of energy you use every day is a great eco-friendly habit you should make a must. Invest in efficient LED bulbs that need much less energy to work and make sure you turn off the lights, the TV or any energy-powered device at home for as long as you don’t use it.


Surely you see that being eco-friendly is not difficult at all. With only six simple green habits you would participate in preserving nature safe and sound for a long time.
