Just a few minutes can change one’s lifestyle to an Eco-friendly one.
With everything you have on your plate for dinner, it seems to be necessary to help protect the ecological balance. The good news is that even the laziest Eco-activist can make some simple changes in their home in just a few minutes. Here are some items we can easily replace with environmental variations without hindering daily life.
- Let’s change the fabric freshenersCommon textiles freshener are filled with chemicals that damage the environment and even trigger allergies at home. Next time your carpets and upholstered furniture need refreshing, just spray them with baking soda and let it stay like that for 10 minutes (or longer, it won’t be a problem). Baking soda neutralizes odours and is a natural and ecological product, so we should not worry that it will cause allergies or contaminate the air in our home with chemical fumes. After ten minutes, all you need to do is vacuum the carpet and the upholstery.
- Replace the bulbOne of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the atmosphere in your home is to replace all light bulbs with energy saving lamps. Depending on your budget and preferences you can choose between CFL and LED lights that consume less energy and last years longer than the ordinary bulbs.
- Reduce the use of paper and plasticIf you frequently use paper towels, paper plates, paper napkins and plastic utensils to avoid dealing with the dishes, it’s time to replace these products with eco-fashioned way of serving. Using cloth napkins, cotton towels, and dishes and utensils that can be washed will significantly reduce our household waste, especially if you have children.
Go green! It will improve the quality of your life and you will feel much better, I promise…
