Do you want to lead a greener lifestyle? It is important for everyone to consider ways that they can reduce their environmental impact as when everyone makes positive changes (even small ones) it can make a huge difference. Read on to find out a few easy changes that you could make to lead a greener lifestyle.
Grow Your Own Fruit & Veg
One of the best ways to reduce your impact is simply to grow your own fruit and veg at home. In addition to reducing food miles, you will also find that it produces cleaner air and can even help you to reduce your grocery bill and give you new hobby so there are many perks to growing your own fruit and veg.
Before grabbing the key and jumping in the car, you should always question whether or not it is essential that you drive. Often, it will be a short journey which you could walk or cycle which is also free and healthier or for longer journeys you should consider public transport. The train is a particularly good option for longer journeys and commutes, such as the train from New Barnet to Finsbury Park.
Eat Less Meat
Going vegan is one of the best steps that you can take for reducing environmental impact and should be considered, but this is a major lifestyle change and one which many people will not want to make. For these people, simply reducing meat consumption so that you are not eating meat for every dinner is a positive step to take and one which is more manageable for many.
While generally people are recycling more in today’s day and age, there is always more that can be done and it should be made a priority in your home and place of work because it makes such a big difference to environmental impact. Even household items like batteries and aerosols can be easily recycled by kerbside collections or local authority amenity sites so everything should be considered before throwing items in the rubbish to be landfilled.
Insulating your home is a smart way to reduce your environmental impact as it cuts down on your energy consumption, which of course also brings financial benefits so it is a win-win situation.
As you can see, there are a handful of ways that you can easily lead a greener lifestyle and it is when everyone makes small changes that a difference will be made.
