When you’re using as little as you can and making the most of what you have you’re practicing sustainable living. It pairs well with a minimalist and organized lifestyle! There are a number of things that you can do to practice sustainable living and benefit your life, let’s go over a few.
You can make a garden. Gardens are a great way to use what you have and not waste anything. Everything you grow benefits the environment and you can promote a healthy lifestyle with different plants and vegetables. Gardens are great for people who love to cook and we all know that cooks hate wasting food!
Minimalize your house. Making your house minimalist doesn’t mean having an empty house, it means that everything in your house has a day to day purpose. Living this way can be very affordable and you’ll be more mindful of your household items. It will be easier to clean too!
Use Energy Efficient Lighting. Did you know that bulbs such as Philips Hue lights can save you over $60 compared to regular bulbs. The bulbs last longer, use less energy, and oftentimes they are smart bulbs in which you can turn them on and off from your phone. With this function, you can make sure you’re not leaving the lights on while you're away!
Use reusable dishes. Investing in Tupperware is a great way to ditch the lunch bags and have an easy to use dish every day for work or going out. You can even size your Tupperware so that you can’t fit as much food in it if you’re watching your weight. Plastic plates and silverware may be great for parties, but having enough dishes means you won’t have to run to the store anytime you have company.
