Read on to learn more about how you can be more eco friendly in your day to day life.\r\nStop Buying Bottled Water\r\nDrinking water is an important part of staying healthy in all climates. As we’ve discussed in our previous blog post, drinking water is incredibly important to staying hydrated and healthy during hot temperatures. It’s just as important to your overall health in more temperate and cooler temperatures as well, and it’s because of this that many people have a tendency to buy bottled water at a rapid pace. While many people feel like they’re treating themselves well by drinking multiple bottles of water a day, buying bottled water comes with a variety of negative effects. For starters, plastic bottles aren’t quite as sustainable as many of us are lead to believe. Many of the bottles that we believe the be recycled end up elsewhere, and the toxins from these degrading bottles can potentially seep into the soil and water supplies of the local community. Additionally, in some cases, bottled water is simply water from a municipal source that’s been repackaged. It may be slightly filtered, but for all intents and purposes, what you’re drinking is no different than tap water. The only difference, of course, is that you’re paying a considerable amount of money for something that you could have for free.The best and easiest way to stop buying bottled water is to invest in a high quality reusable water bottle. Not only will this make it easy for you to fill up at water fountains and taps when you need to, many of these use top notch insulation technology that can help keep your water nice and cool for hours on end. Not only will you be able to save money by not buying a bottle of water every time you need to hydrate, you’ll also be doing the planet a favor by cutting down on the amount of bottles that will inevitably be turned into waste.\r\nShut Off and Unplug\r\nHere and now, we rely on our mobile devices, tablets and laptops for a variety of different duties. It’s because of this that we have a tendency to charge our devices overnight to ensure that they’re ready to be used in the morning. The thing that many people don’t realize, however, is that our devices only need a an hour or two to be fully charged. Leaving these devices charging overnight consumes a considerable and unnecessary amount of energy. Not only does this drive up our monthly energy bills, but it also means that we’re being wasteful in relation to power consumption.Our simple solution—charge your devices an hour or two before bed. By the time you’re ready to go to bed, your devices will be ready to go for the next day, and you can turn off your power strips and reduce your power consumption as well as energy costs.\r\nAll Natural Body Care Products\r\nGreen Tidings is proud to provide you with the best in all natural deodorants, lip balms, body scrubs and more, providing you with results and performance without the use of harsh synthetic chemicals.
