As an Environmental Major, I am ALL about learning new ways that we can all take on to be more sustainable in our daily lives. Now let me say that this doesn’t mean that you have to change your daily routines COMPLETLY- it’s just altering them a tad bit ( for a good cause). Let me throw out some facts to you in 2018 it was found that the WORLD produces 275 Tons of plastic waste per year- and you can help reduce that number, and this is how.
So here are five ways you can live more sustainably:
Okay, so here a few reasons you should switch to a reusable water bottle- I love the brand YETI soo thats what I use.
Remember, you are talking to the girl who got a 50 Gallon Composter for her 20th birthday so that I may be a tad biased. Composting prevents organic material from going to landfills, where it will take 10x longer to decompose. Things like your egg shells and coffee grounds from your breakfast each day can be composted!
I still will NEVER understand why plastic bags became a thing, but its an easy switch to get a reusable bag for your grocery trips.
That’s right Shopping can be sustainable- the fashion industry is one of the highest contributors to pollution, but some new designers are helping change that. You can even repurpose the clothing! A study showed that 3/5 of clothing will end up in a landfill.
These are just a FEW ways you can alter your daily life to help be more sustainable!
