Ideas for a Better and Greener 2019

January 2019 will be here in a matter of weeks. You can prepare yourself for a greener year by doing the following things listed here. The actions that you take today can significantly improve you and the planet’s future.

Here is how to kick off 2019 in an environmentally-friendly way:

  • Do your research. Learn which companies uphold sustainable practices and create products that are better for your health and the environment. Learn which types of materials to avoid and which to embrace. By taking on the role of the informed consumer, you’re able to back your decisions with facts. You know exactly why or why not you’re using certain products or buying from specific companies. You’re able to share the information with other people who can also benefit from your research and experience. You can be a catalyst of change for others just by learning what you can about protecting the planet.
  • Understand the cost of cheap goods. Just because a product is inexpensive doesn’t mean that it doesn’t come at a cost. In fact, the reason why some goods and services are so cheap is because the companies that create them engage in unethical practices to produce said items. From refusing to pay workers a living wage to dumping toxic waste products into bodies of water, the way the companies operate is questionable. While researching your options as a consumer, you’ll become aware of why cheap doesn’t mean better. You’ll invest in products that are more expensive, last longer, and need to replaced less often.
  • Ditch one-time-use products. Stop using disposable products. From straws to water bottles to napkins, there are ways to avoid creating unnecessary plastic and paper waste. Choose recycled products or ones that can be reused and refilled regularly. In doing so, you’ll reduce the amount of waste that you produce as an individual and even persuade area businesses to change their practices. They see the need to do things differently as a way to answer customer demand and help the planet in the process.
  • Grow your own garden. You don’t need a lot of space to grow a garden. In fact, you can use containers to grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs in even the tiniest spaces. By producing some of your own food, a number of things happen. The first is that you have a greater appreciation for the natural process of food production. When you’re responsible for raising your own food, you’re considerate of all the things that need to occur to make that happen. You also lower your grocery costs, have better control over the quality of the food that you eat, and reduce your carbon footprint even further by not relying on manufacturing and transportation systems that contribute to the pollution of the planet.
  • Reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle. One of the most important things you can do as a consumer is differentiate between a want and a need. Knowing which things you could use less of, utilize again, make into something new, and recycle is important. It allows you to make better decisions about the role your life plays on the environment. It helps you avoid wasteful purchases, stokes your creativity, and allows new items to be created from the old products that you no longer have need for.
  • Spread the word. One of the great things about technology is how easy it is to share articles, videos, and books of interest with others. In fact, once you’ve learned how to make your life more environmentally-friendly, you’ll want to help others do the same. You’ll post on social media, share direct messages, and even recommend resources that helped you with your journey. The end result is more people working toward a common goal. Your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors will feel inspired by your actions and want to know how they can do their part to make the planet a safer and better place for all.

There are many ways to get involved as an individual, family, and member of your community. If you want to invite change in your life in order to help the planet, start today. You can make a real difference in a short time by examining your habits and making consistent changes to ensure your personal and professional lives are greener.

A new year is the perfect time to put your plan into action. In fact, keeping track of your new habits is easy thanks to all the different apps available for smartphones and tablets. You can keep tabs on how many bottles or cups of water you consume in a day, how what you eat affects the planet and its inhabitants, and even set goals for yourself that are trackable on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
