5 Ways to Live a More Eco-Friendly Lifestyle 0

Hello, friends!

Here at Native Organics, we firmly believe that it's within everyone's grasp to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Below are a few simple tips that can have you well on your way...

Live a More Eco-Friendly Lifestyle

1. TURN OFF THOSE ELECTRONICS

Before you go to bed at night, be sure to turn off all the lights in the house as well as shut down any electronics like laptops and televisions that won't be in use while you're asleep.

2. BYOB

You'd be shocked to learn how many water bottles and coffee cups wind up in landfills each year. Invest in a reusable water bottle and/or coffee mug and help save the environment while staying hydrated.

3. ENJOY MEATLESS MONDAYS...

Or Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or whenever! Commercial farm animals consumer a ton of food, water and space. So help reduce their footprint by going vegetarian every now and then. The environment (and your waistline) will thank you for it.


4. DONATE TO A LOCAL CHARITY

The next time you're doing your spring cleaning, set aside your unwanted goods and donate them to a local charity rather than tossing them in the garbage. You know the old saying: "One man's garbage could be another man's treasure."

5. SUPPORT GREEN BUSINESSES (LIKE OURS!)

When more companies strive to be more eco-friendly, we all benefit. If presented the choice, always choose eco-friendly when you can.

Here at Native Organics, we take our commitment to green living and sustainability seriously. And just in case saving money, doing the right thing, and protecting our planet weren't enough, here's our top 3 list of benefits of going green:

Benefits of Going Greem

1. REDUCE WASTE

Products are continually being produced and discarded on a rapid scale, causing pollution and the release of toxins worldwide. Purchasing eco-friendly products reduces the need for raw materials, lessens the emissions of greenhouse gases and decreases the amount of waste in landfills.

 

2. SAVE MONEY

At first glance, green purchasing can seem more expensive. But when done the right way, going green can save you tons of money in the long run and help your dollar stretch a lot farther. Saving $1000 per year on energy and water is a reasonable expectation for most households.

3. PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT

Going Green helps conserve energy, improves the quality of air we breathe, reduces the rate of skin, eye and respiratory irritations and helps protect the world's delicate ecological balance.
