Why should you green your house for better sustainable living?
It is important that as consumers, we focus on making conscious decisions to make sustainable living a necessity. Every decision we make on what to consume both inside and outside our household has an impact on the planet. We need to learn to consume smarter and better to ensure that the impact we are creating is one that is positive!
When you think of sustainability, what comes to mind?
Each individual's version of being sustainable varies, and everyone contributes to sustainability in different ways. Common acts of sustainability include using reusable mugs, bringing bags to grocery stores, storing foods in containers, recycling, and composting old food. We need to go beyond that! Every single day we are making decisions in our lives that affect the climate, environment as well as other species.
These are some ideas of small ways to be more sustainable:
Questioning whether you really need a product
All the products we choose to buy have an environmental footprint. Therefore, it is important to contemplate whether the product is essential, or whether you can find a used product that could satisfy the same job.
Paying more attention to labels on the products we buy
It is vital to look carefully and closely to the labels on the products we buy. Try to focus on buying organic and Fair-Trade certified goods. Even though these products might be on the pricier side, you are supporting companies which are sustainably producing their products, protecting farm workers, conserving wildlife, and keeping harmful toxins out of our water bodies/oceans.
Looking at the environmental benefits of large purchases
When buying products such as washers, dryers, or cars, look for the most efficient models and appliances. You will end up saving money and reducing your carbon footprint.
Green Your Home - Sustainable Living in Singapore
Sustainability starts right in your own home. Have you made conscious decisions within your own household? In your own home you can focus on the use of energy-saving light bulbs, energy saving windows, natural cleaning products. You can also plant an energy-efficient garden, buy recycled products, and reused furniture.
Remember, every small step you take towards being eco-conscious matters. It takes a culmination of small acts and increased efforts to work towards a more eco-conscious lifestyle. Start incorporating certain acts to your daily routine, one step at a time, and without realizing you are creating a bigger, substantial, and positive impact on our planet.
Numerous companies nowadays are focusing on quantity over quality. Indosole works towards upcycling resources to products. Our soles are made using 100% recycled tires and we focus on having a safe and healthy working environment.
