In part two of our blog series, we will look at even more things that you can do to live a greener lifestyle.
This one may come as a no-brainer to some of you, but the difference you can make by organic produce and other food items is considerable. The obvious one is that organic foods are better for you as they contain no pesticides or additives that can be harmful to your health. Organic foods may cost a little more than their non-organic counterparts, but you get what you pay for, as organic options have a tendency to taste better and fresher than others. Secondly, studies show that organic farming is better for our environment overall. Organic farming is more environmentally friendly in that it uses less energy, conserves water, and reduces pollution. Additionally, because of the fact their products are raised without the use of pesticides, this also makes it better for the wildlife and other people in the area. Additionally, while this isn’t always the case, organic food is often grown on farms that are local to your area. Check your packaging to be sure of this fact. Shopping organic is a fantastic way to live a more green lifestyle!
Reduce or Cut Out Meat
While this is a more difficult option for some, the benefits of greatly reducing your meat intake or switching to a plant-based diet are numerous. Meat that is manufactured in an industrial setting has been known to have a considerably negative effect on the environment. Raising animals for the purpose of consumption requires large amounts of energy, water, land, and it creates a staggering amount of pollution in the process. Additionally, many facilities are incredibly cruel to their livestock. Cutting out meat from your diet is easier said than done, though, especially if you’re someone who has eaten meat for the majority of your life. A great way to do this is to ease into it. Go meatless for a few meals a month. From there, try going once a week, and increasing accordingly. Not only will you discover a variety of new foods that you’ve likely never had prior, you’ll also be treating both your body and the environment better.
Some of us are incredibly handy when it comes to leftovers, while others aren’t quite as responsible. It’s easy to throw away leftovers out of not wanting to eat the same thing a few days in a row, or simply forgetting that you have leftovers waiting for you at home. A great way to use your leftovers is to simply re-imagine them into something new. Have leftover stuffed peppers that you don’t feel like having the next day? Chop them up and use them as fajita filling. Trying to figure out what to do with those eggplant cutlets? Turn them into a sandwich for lunch. Repurposing your leftovers will not only ensure that you’re cutting down on waste, you’re also saving money by using all of the food that you purchase throughout the week.
Those are just a few more things that you can do to help you live a greener lifestyle. Green Tidings is proud to provide you with advice on green living, as well as high quality all-natural body care products.
