Eat green, breathe green, live green! Tips and tricks to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle

Making life around us more environment-friendly is indeed helpful for us and the planet we live in.

Here are some easy tips on how to decrease carbon footprint, and help the environment and the people around us.

1) Decrease meat and dairy consumption

Animal husbandry is a serious cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction.

2) Carpool or use public transport

Lesser number of vehicles on the roads means reduction in air and noise pollution.

3) Use menstrual cups

As opposed to pads and tampons, menstrual cups are reusable.

4) Avoid using paper

Take notes on mobile phones or computers. Even if you do use paper, don’t forget to recycle or repurpose.

5) Use electricity frugally

Open blinds or curtains and use as much natural light as possible. Don’t forget to turn off lights when not in use.

6) Use fluorescent lights

Regular incandescent light bulbs use more electricity as opposed to fluorescent lights which last longer.

Top Tip

Start meat-free Mondays to get into this routine.
