It’s our commitment to improving our environment and promoting green lifestyles that fuels us to create the products that we do, after all. With this in mind, in part one of our blog series, we’ll look at some things that you can do to help live a greener lifestyle.


Practice Better Transportation Habits

We’ve talked in previous blogs about the benefits of walking more, but some distances are too far to walk. What to do in situations like these? Driving is always an option, but if you really want to do your part and help promote a greener lifestyle, there are better, more environmentally friendly options for you. If you’re really committed to making the change in your life, investing in a gas/electric hybrid car will help you reduce your carbon footprint, especially if you’re the sort of person that does a lot of driving. As if that wasn’t enough, owning a hybrid will also qualify you for a considerable tax credit as well.

If you’re the sort of person who doesn’t drive often, getting rid of your car and instead using ridesharing services or carpooling with friends can also help you reduce your carbon footprint. While this may not always be the easiest decision to make, if you find that owning a car is something that isn’t necessary in your life, getting rid of it can make a difference. On the flipside, if you’re like the above described person who does a lot of driving, offering to drive others to encourage carpooling is an added incentive to owning a hybrid. Not only will you be able to treat the environment better during your day to day driving, but you’ll also be keeping other, less environmentally friendly vehicles off of the road by allowing others to carpool with you.


Educate Others on Being Green

There’s a fine line between being informative and being preachy, but some people are more unaware of the impact that their decisions make on the environment than others. With this point in mind, some people may actually want to make changes in their life after realizing that the impact that some of their decisions can have on the environment. You can be the good friend by letting people know of various things that they can do to help treat the environment better. Have a friend that doesn’t recycle? Help them develop a habit of doing so. Know someone who can’t stop buying bottled water? Inform them of what the plastic bottle industry actually does to the environment. Have a friend who litters negligently? Help them change. These are all simple and easy things that people can do to help make sure that our planet is in great shape for generations to come.

Make Smarter Purchases

Have you ever been looking at something at the grocery store, only to notice that the item you want has been re-packaged in a way that was wasteful and excessive? While some brands simply do this for aesthetic purposes, in more cases than not, this excessive and incredibly wasteful packaging serves no purpose and only further contributes to the amount of waste that we produce. Recently, brands have started to take notice of this, repackaging their products in ways that are more environmentally friendly, by using either recycled or sustainable products, or packaging their products in a minimalist way. Trying to find products that are packaged in a way that is more environmentally friendly is a great way to practice greener living.


Those are just a few examples of things that you can do to live a greener lifestyle. Of course, Green Tidings also provides you with an array of all-natural body care products that can help you live greener, as well. We will continue this in part two of our blog series, but until then, for a variety of natural body care products, shop Green Tidings today.
