Simple ways to live greener

With Spring coming, we thought we could do a bit spring cleaning about our daily habits and help you switch to a greener lifestyleAn environmentally friendly lifestyle is one that many people aspire to – but busy lives and budget constraints can make it seem difficult. However, there are some simple ways that you can live a greener life. Here are just a few of our top suggestions.

Turn off your electrics – properly

This best time to do this is before bed. Simply go around your home, unplug and switch off every device that you won’t need while you’re sleeping. Not only will this help you to save on your electricity bill, but it’s better for the environment too.

Switch your lightbulbs

Energy saving lightbulbs aren’t a new thing, but you’d be surprised how many households still use the old-style bulbs. Switching your whole house to energy saving is a simple way to do your bit for the environment – they often last longer too!

Buy fair-trade

This doesn’t just apply to food, but clothing too. Most fair-trade brands not only promote better lifestyles for the people involved in creating them, but use green methods of production and shipping. Buying fair trade products doesn’t have to break the bank, we stock a whole host of fair-trade brands that are affordable for everyone. You can browse all of our pieces here.

Make all natural, home-made solutions

With just a little extra time and effort, you can make your own DIY solutions to common household problems. Using online tutorials, you can make everything from natural weed killer to scented candles.

Get into the cold-wash habit

Did you know that washing your clothes in cold water could save a heap of energy? According to research, over 90% of energy used in washing machines is due to heating the water. So going cold is a simple green method that anyone can try.

Online shop

This is a win-win in every way. Research suggests that doing your weekly shop online could cut CO2 emissions by 50%. After all, online shopping means less people jumping into their cares to drive to the supermarket. You could start doing your grocery shopping from the comfort of your bed!
