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!
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!
One of my new year goals, I’m not sure if you all remember, is to try to become more eco-friendly. Over the last few years, emphasised by the environmental ethics course I took last year, I’ve been thinking more and more about how I can be a better tenant on our beautiful planet. The world is quickly changing and the more damage I see done to the earth, the more I want to break down in tears about the fact that people don’t seem to be doing enough to stop the damage from becoming irreversible. While it may not necessarily be enough for one person to change the world, one person’s actions in terms of being more eco-friendly can still have a positive result, and so the thought that my actions may not make that much of a difference is no longer an excuse. Even if the things that I do can help a little, or inspire someone else to start initiating similar changes, then that is still more success than before. SO today, holding up my new year goal, here are some easy, eco-friendly changes you can make (these are the same ones that we are implementing in my house so I am practising what I preach, fear not) so that little by little, we can at least try to make a difference in keeping our beautiful planet alive and healthy.
