A Few Green Changes You Can Make to Your Life

There’s no doubt that green living isn’t just about what we can do to help our planet, but it is also something which will can really help improve your overall health, yes green living is healthy living. One thing that a lot of individuals don’t understand is that as our planet becomes more and more polluted every day, and the health of the individuals that live in the world is also going to be affected. Here we are going to be talking about a few things that will be able to help both our own health and the planet at the same time.

An important focus if you need one, could be to stop using is disposable plastic products as well as disposable Styrofoam, plastics and Styrofoam products are a small number of things that can take thousands of years to decompose. This means that each time someone places a plastic bag or Styrofoam container in their garbage and it ends up in our land fills, we are contaminating the earth. One of the largest culprits are the grocery stores as they use plastic bags now as opposed to paper bags, of course some stores will still enable you to ask for paper bags and if you do use the paper bags be sure you recycle them. Or even better, you could get the reusable canvass totes for your shopping.

You can also start to plant trees as well as other types of plants, regularly to help re-build their population. Our world is consuming a lot more trees every year than we’re planting. If you consider it, if we keep using more trees than we plant each and every year, in time there will be no trees left in the world. For us to keep the tree population where it ought to be, everybody should be planting a minimum of one tree a month. You need to also realize that when there are less and less trees in the world, that also means that the volume of oxygen in our air will also be reduced every year.

One more thing you ought to start doing is to start using as many organic and naturally developed products as you can. The fantastic thing about consuming organic foods is that farmers are not going to need to use as many pesticides and chemicals that wind up in our air, soil and also in the foods we consume. You have to understand that pesticides are a poison to kill insects and when these chemical compounds enter our bodies it is still a poison that can do damage to our health. Then when ever possible, you ought to only be purchasing products which have been made or grown using only organic methods.

Travelling is one of the biggest environmental costs simply because of the energy that is required. Now it would be a very dull place if we couldn’t go anywhere, travel is a wonderful experience, but sometimes we can cut out some non-essential journeys. After all is there really a need to travel hundreds of miles to have a one hour meeting ? The technology exists to have fast, high quality video conferences with very little trouble it’s quick, inexpensive and has a minimal environmental impact. Even if you’re international and have problems with filters, there are very simple methods to route video protocols without great expense.   Using VPNs and proxies you can also bypass any geographical restrictions – such as this which demonstrates how to watch BBC iPlayer in Ireland.

Saving our earth in addition to our health is a thing that every single person is accountable for. If everybody was to do their part you would realize that the health of our planet and our personal health would both benefit from these kinds of efforts. Obviously you additionally have to realize that if people don’t start taking care of our planet, in time it will no longer be able to sustain life.
