HOW YOU CAN BE A MINDFUL CONSUMER
Society is starting to lean toward an eco-friendly way of life. This is mostly because many people are now understanding how important it is that we make changes, in order for our future to be sustainable, and, simply put - livable! If we want to create a greener tomorrow for the next generation, that starts now. With that in mind, there is no better way to make it happen (and no easier way, for that matter), than to start with the products we buy on a regular basis.
Thankfully, being an eco-conscious shopper isn’t as difficult as it might sound. Huge brand names, and small businesses alike are recognizing the demand for better quality products that don’t harm the environment in their manufacturing. Because of this, entirely new lines of familiar products have been released in recent years, making it easier than ever to be a ‘green’ shopper, no matter what you’re buying.
When it comes to foods, it’s always a good idea to go organic. Thankfully, that means so much more than just fruits and vegetables nowadays. Big brands have finally come around to the ‘organic’ side of things, using humane practices for their meat, no preservatives in their boxed or canned products, etc. Using foods that are labeled 100% organic, all-natural, or hormone-free are simple choices you can make to add more nutrition to your diet, and make an environmental impact.
Cleaning supplies are a huge factor in being an eco-friendly shopper, too. Many supplies are loaded with harmful chemicals, that are not only dangerous to breathe in, but damaging to the ozone. Choose natural cleaners, or find recipes to make your own using household ingredients, and reduce their negative impact.
Everything from clothes, to personal items, to beauty and cosmetics can all be ‘green’ items, when you know what to look for. That’s getting easier than ever, but it’s still important to be conscious of the products you’re choosing, and how they can affect our future.
