I’ve tried many fun, interesting eco-friendly challenges this year, and some of my favourites have been food-related ones. Of course, that might just be because food is just amazing. However, I struggled to think of a food-related sustainability challenge that I hadn’t done in some way before, so to spice up the challenge, I thought, why not combine some of them into one big one?
I know it’s almost halfway through September, but I finally have for you my eco-friendly challenge for this month. I’m a bit delayed in sharing because I used August to finish the Summer Competition Showcase so was backlogged a little with posts I wanted to share. But also, because my eco-friendly challenge this month is part of a collab I’m doing with Moksha over at Happy Panda.
The start of August also marks my 8th eco-friendly monthly challenge. I’ve really had such fun with these challenges, and I can’t wait to implement them more in my life when I move into my flat in the UK. This month, I struggled to think of an idea. I finally settled on trying to size down my carbon footprint, particularly with travel, so here it goes!
As I was pondering and pouring through Pinterest, I came across a fun eco-friendly challenge all about minimalism. This one really inspired me because, in general, I think we hold onto too much stuff, and maybe we don’t always appreciate the things we have or get the fullest use out of them. Sooo, with that in mind, I bring you this month’s eco-friendly challenge
May has probably been the greatest mix of stress and relaxation I’ve had in a while, as I had my first set of uni exams/final exams for first-year to do online. Which is absolutely terrifying, by the way – am I the only one who feels that way? But, having all my exams and summative assignments out the way also means that I am free to do fun things and relax a little after a rather hectic, if not somewhat inactive and digital, first year of university. Today I am doing another monthly review post – I hope you enjoy it!
Water is arguably one of our most precious and vital commodities. After all, it’s the thing that makes Earth so unique. However, we quite simply use way too much water. Think about it – to prepare our foods, to wash and for personal hygiene, to clean everything else in our lives and more. Water is such a fundamental part of our lives, and yet, unfortunately, it is a resource that we are quickly realising is not indefinite. All over the world, though, I do believe that people realise we can’t just use as much water as we want and still think we’ll have plenty for years to come. However, I believe that we can all be more clever about saving water, so that is what my May eco-challenge will be all about. The ways in which I can try to save as much water as possible.
April is all about Earth Day, so all the points and tips about how we can be more friendly to our beautiful planet and do small things to contribute to helping it heal in some way or the other. So today, I am so happy to be setting my monthly challenge and chatting about how to be more eco-friendly in our daily lives with Project Eco. Being eco-friendly is something I am so passionate about so being able to do a collab like this is a huge moment for me. (Throwing a little party in my head!! Wooohoooo). I hope you enjoy today’s post!
I was doing some research to help me decide which eco-friendly goal I wanted to pursue next when I realised that the 3rd of March is World Wildlife Day, so what better topic for me to blog about today than to choose something wildlife-related as my goal for the month? Today I’m going through my wildlife goals for this month – I hope you’ll join me in the challenge
s I said, I’m making it a mission to become more environmentally friendly. The way I’m going to do this is by setting myself a challenge each month. Every month I’m going to try and tackle a different part of my life where I can live more sustainably or be more eco-friendly, and this month I’m pitching plastic! Now I know that in society’s current climate it can be challenging to make significant changes like this (it’s not like the rest of the world is necessarily helping out like all the plastic packaging in supermarkets, straws etc.). The big thing I really want to do with these challenges is to make them sustainable and practical to slot into daily life.
