Let's face it; being earth-friendly can sometimes feel like navigating a tricky obstacle course. With our fast-paced lives and convenience-driven habits, it's not always easy to make the most eco-conscious choices. However, fear not! Today, we'll explore how we can all do our best in small, manageable ways to make a big impact on the environment.
The Struggle is Real, and That's Okay:
First and foremost, let's acknowledge that being earth-friendly is not accessible or easy. With busy schedules, limited resources, and societal norms, it's not always possible to adopt a green lifestyle. And you know what? That's perfectly okay! It's essential to recognize that each small step we take towards sustainability matters. So, let's pat ourselves on the back for every effort, no matter how seemingly insignificant it may feel.
Babe, Take Baby Steps:
Transforming into a green goddess overnight is impossible. Instead, evaluate how you can make last changes with small updates. Start with something simple like swapping plastic grocery bags for reusable tote bags, then slowly move up to replacing paper towels with reusable ones. Start small and make simple changes that can be comfortably worked into your life.
The Power of Conscious Consumption:
We all love a good shopping spree, but our purchasing choices have a profound impact on the environment. Before you click that "buy now" button, ask yourself: "Do I really need this?" and "Is this eco-friendly claim just greenwashing?" Read more about greenwashing here. Our world is shaped by what we purchase and spending an extra minute scrutinizing our purchases will add up.
Friend, Do Less.
The biggest thing we can all do is less. Less purchasing, less driving, less eating meat, less traveling... Doing less (of almost everything) means less of a negative impact. Be less evil <3
When you environmental apathy is HIGH remember these few key deets that and stay focused on what we can do.
