While there are many crucial problems facing the world right now, it’s true that bettering ourselves where we can will still make a difference. No matter how powerless you may feel in the midst of a pandemic, or with sweeping political issues causing conflict in countries around the world, we can all act locally and try to be better people in our own lives. If more people thought that way, the change would happen overnight to some degree, as we each share a burden of responsibility to this end.
Yet, many of us are ill-equipped to give the most thought-out and lifetime-researched political ideas to a large audience, nor can we make massive systemic change overnight. However, we can focus on issues that are becoming more relevant by the day, such as the ecological crisis that elevates our environmental awareness each day.
So, what habits can we integrate into our lifestyles, habits that are sustainable, a keener alternative, and more importantly, those that offer a real, measurable effect? Let’s explore these questions together:
We would heavily recommend reading our excellent guide to eco-fashion in 2020. As more and more people are conscious of their environmental impact, knowing where to source sustainable clothing and to make the most of fashion in this light will become a popular new method of developing and benefiting from ethical daily habits. Furthermore, eco fashion alternatives allow us to support vital initiatives that truly do care about the environment, and away from clothes sourced in sweatshop conditions abroad, or other less friendly areas. This way, your conscience can stay clean even as you look stylish.
Eco Home Design
With the best planning architects, eco home design allows us to manage a property in the right way, renovating with an eye on our carbon footprint. From conservation areas that make the most of natural lighting, to better organizing space for an indoor garden, or finding the best roofing designs to allow natural solar integration in your energy system, the more you can reduce your power intake or pull from sustainable, renewable sources, you’ll be more likely to ensure your home is a stable, environmentally sensitive place to inhabit. The more this becomes the norm, the better.
Our Travel Impact
Now that lockdown is starting to end, we can consider the choices we make moving around this world. It can be that we purchase a bicycle to get to work instead of using public transport, a measure that can also protect us for the time being. Furthermore, it may be that using Uber carpool options or giving a friend a lift to work instead of taking two separate cars helps you move forward with conscientiousness. It may even be, if you have the means, that trading your vehicle in for a hybrid or eclectic option can make a significant impact. The more you can approximate differing solutions like this, the better your results will be.
With this advice, you will be sure to develop eco-habits that affect your everyday.
