Simple Steps to Incorporate Sustainability in Your Daily Life This Month

Living sustainably is not just good for the planet, it’s also good for our health and wallets. By making small changes in our daily lives, we can make a big impact on the environment. Here are five ways to be sustainable this month:






1. Reduce your meat consumption: Animal agriculture is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. By reducing your meat consumption, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. You don’t have to go vegan or vegetarian, but try to incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet. You can also try meatless Mondays or choose a plant-based option when eating out.


2. Use reusable bags and containers: Single-use plastics are a major contributor to pollution. By using reusable bags and containers, you can significantly reduce your plastic waste. Keep a reusable bag in your car or by the door so you always have it on hand. When you go out to eat, bring your own container for leftovers.


3. Reduce your energy consumption: Energy consumption is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. By reducing your energy consumption, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. Turn off the lights when you leave a room, unplug electronics when you’re not using them, and use a programmable thermostat to save energy.


4. Support local businesses: Buying locally reduces the carbon footprint of shipping and transporting goods. Supporting local businesses also helps the local economy. Look for locally sourced produce, meat, and dairy at your grocery store. Shop at locally owned businesses instead of big box stores.


5. Reduce your water consumption: Water is a precious resource and it’s important to conserve it. You can reduce your water consumption by taking shorter showers, fixing leaks, and using a low-flow toilet. You can also reduce your water consumption by using a rain barrel to collect water for your garden. By incorporating these five sustainable practices into your daily life, you can make a positive impact on the environment. Remember, small changes can make a big difference.
