Living an eco-friendly lifestyle can start today. As the year winds downs, people start looking forward to the year ahead—setting goals, making plans and developing their New Years resolutions. If you are thinking about living a more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle in the New Year, why wait? Below are three reasons why you should get started on that goal today.
Our Planet Earth
The health of our planet doesn’t wait for the new year—it needs our help now. Environmental pollution, plastic pollution and global warming are all having an effect on our planet and can be felt in our daily lives.
The EPA estimates that 65 percent of sewer spills are caused by fats, oils and grease.
Plastic bags make up more than 10% of washed-up debris that pollute the U.S. coastline; an estimated one million birds, 100,000 turtles, and countless other sea animals die each year from ingesting plastic.
Great Holiday Specials
There are great deals to be had on many home products this time of year. Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are great, but they don’t end on those two days—shoppers can find some amazing deals all year long.
Looking to make a quick lifestyle change? You can cut down on your plastic pollution with reusable product bags, beeswax reusable food storage wraps and glass food containers. The Grease Hero makes it easy to cut down on pollution in your own neighborhood by helping you properly dispose of cooking fats, oils and grease. The Grease Hero is made from recycled material and is easy to incorporate into your kitchen cleaning routine.
Behavior and Attitude Shifts
If you change your mindset now, living an eco-friendly lifestyle in the New Year won’t seem like such a challenging task. Start by making small behavior changes today, so that you are setting yourself up for success. We understand that big lifestyle changes can be overwhelming, but if you start small and really incorporate the small changes daily, you will have a big impact on your local environment and work yourself up to those larger goals.
Simple changes to your daily routine can have profound impacts on the environment.
