When it comes to what we do in our daily lives – from the way we store our food to how we wash our clothes – we have a greater impact on our community, the environment, and our own well-being than we think. Now more than ever, it’s important to be mindful about the products we use and how much waste we create on a regular basis.
Of course, transitioning into a more conscious, eco-friendly lifestyle is easier said than done, but there are few simple ways to make the switch. So how do you do it? Keep reading for everything you need to know about transitioning to an eco-friendly lifestyle.
What is an eco-friendly lifestyle?
An eco-friendly lifestyle is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It’s a way of life that, put simply, is not harmful to Earth. However, it’s not only about taking actions that are beneficial to the environment. When choosing to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, you’re also choosing to live a higher quality of life through mindfulness and setting good-hearted intentions.
Why should you consider an eco-friendly lifestyle?
Community and a sense of belonging is essential to our happiness as humans, which alone is a good enough reason to live environmentally conscious for yourself and the people around you. While you may not always see instantaneous rewards from recycling or using eco-friendly products, it’s comforting to know you’re making a positive impact on the world and on humanity as a whole.
How do you begin your eco-friendly lifestyle?
Living an eco-friendly lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as easy as keeping reusable products in your home versus single-use ones. The Root + Heart Beeswax Wraps, for instance, replace the use of plastic bags and saran wrap. They can be used to store food in your fridge or take it on the go. Replacing single-use products one-by-one will help you ease into a new way of life.
A few other easy ways to transition into conscious living include: riding a bike or walking instead of driving when possible, using all-natural cleaning products, shopping from second-hand clothing stores, and reducing your intake of meat in your daily diet. The eco-friendly options are truly endless!
Overall, committing to an eco-friendly lifestyle will be beneficial for everyone on the planet and for the planet itself. Are you ready to join the conscious living community? Share how you’re living an eco-friendly lifestyle by tagging us on Instagram at @rootandheartco.
