A Nudge Towards Sustainable Living

Committing to a sustainable lifestyle can be intimidating for some, even scary! It’s perfectly normal to be nervous to change life habits, but the shift does not have to be all at once. There are plenty of small changes that you can make to slowly transition to being more sustainable. Before diving into sustainable life changes, it’s important to know why being sustainable is important. Everyday resources can be harmful to the environment. Although a plastic bag or leaving a light on in the living room may not seem like a huge deal, small things like these can add up! This can lead to pollution, climate change, and harm to wildlife.

Now that we’ve covered why it’s important to be sustainable, let’s dive into how you can help to make a difference! Simple ways to save energy in your house are turning off your appliances when they are not in use, hanging clothes to dry, and turning off lights! Using reusable alternatives to replace plastic bags, compostable toiletries such as toothbrushes, and bared shampoo and conditioner are also great small changes! And, last but not least, having compost delivered to your home! Did you know that food and produce cannot correctly decompose in landfills, causing them to release CO2 into the air? Composts allow food particles to decompose without harming the environment, plus it makes a great fertilizer!
