It's the perfect time to take stock and assess your life, and perhaps re-evaluate some of your habits. Along with personal health and wealth goals, many people have goals for how to live more sustainably for the benefit of the larger community and the world. Here are a few changes that you can make to be more green in 2020!
Use Eco-friendly Cleaners
Some benefits of using eco-friendly cleaners include: making your home safer, protecting your health, cleaning up your indoor air, and helping the environment.
Reduce Your Paper Towel Use
The average homeowner spends almost $600.00 a year on disposable paper towels. Nearly 550,000 trees are used to produce paper towels. Using cloth towels can really make an impact.
Try Meatless Meals
It may sound over the top but raising animals for food requires a lot of land, fossil fuel, water, and food. Cutting back on some of the meat you eat is a good way to reduce your environmental impact. It also has great health benefits and reduces your grocery bill.
Bring a Reusable Mug
Are you someone who stops every morning to get that cup of coffee on the way to work?
Why not bring your own mug? Americans alone throw away
500 Billion foam coffee cups
each year. Yes, billion with a "B". Do your part by grabbing your mug on the way out the
door in the morning. Chances are you won't have to pay as much either! Many places will give you a discount or will only charge a refill price for bringing your own mug. Win, win!
