Living green isn’t just about the environment. It is about you as well. Green living is the best way to stop turning your cash to trash. Many of the items and packages you buy eventually become trash. This means that you have wasted your money and you made more waste. The secret is to pay more attention on the things you will buy.
The best advice is to buy items that are recyclable and reusable. They last longer, so you don’t have to buy them every day or every week. Plastic water bottles are very harmful for the environment, because they do not dissolve in the nature. The same situation is with other items made from plastic. The solution is to buy reusable water bottles and disposable paper cups. The spaghetti sauce is the best in mason jars. Also, you can use those jars for some other purpose.
Products with the least amount of packaging are something that you can use. Bulk items are cheaper and they include way less packaging. Beside you will make less waste, they require less materials for production, use less energy during their production and their transport is cheaper.
Items that last are the best. You will be able to use them for long, so you don’t have to replace them often. Before buying an item, you should think about: how long you can use it, the price and can it be repaired or upgraded.
Hazardous detergents are something you must avoid. They are poisonous for you, so they affect on your health. Also, they are bad for your clothes, because they can damage it. Before buying them, look at the labels and signs for danger or warning.
