Reduce energy use
One easy yet effective way to become more environmentally friendly is to reduce the amount of energy that you consume. This is because the majority of us receive energy as a result of the combustion of fossil fuels, which are non-renewable resources, meaning they are finite as opposed to infinite. Importantly, the combustion or burning of these fossil fuels, releases dangerous and excessive amounts of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. As a result, the world’satmosphere and climate is heating and changing. That is what is meant by climate change –the actions of humans are causing the Earth’s natural climate to modify and become more extreme.
So, if you want to do your part in saving the planet that we live on, you must do all that you can do reduce the amount of energy that you use.Use more eco-friendly sources of energy, source as renewable sources where you can – for instance, why not take full advantage of solar energy by installing solar panels. Alternatively, if you live in a windy climate then you can take advantage of wind power with turbines.
Use eco-friendly products and services
Another great way that you can become more eco-friendly is by supporting businesses and companies that take being environmentally friendly seriously and refuse to buy products from the worst polluting offenders (letting them know why!). Private individuals have a lot of purchasing power and the way to make companies pay attention to the environment is to withhold your money.
So, instead of purchasing non-environmentally packaging such as coffee cups from your local café, why not switch it up and support Envior Limited who specialise in eco-friendly and recyclable packing. It may feel like such a small and minor change will do little to benefit the planet; however, this is far from the case. Every action and change in behaviour, will do a great amount to benefit the planet. Just think about it, if everyone did just a little, the sum of the change will be massive since there are literally billions of us on the planet.
Change your mindset
Before anything else, if you want to become more environmentally friendly, your mindset has to change – you need to be more conscious and aware of your actions and how they affect the environment. What is important is that everybody does their part and makes the changes they can when they can. By constantly having the environment as a consideration, better choices will be made across the World.
