The time is ticking for us all to become more conscious of the products we buy. Take the responsibility as an habitant of the Earth to protect the environment and save the future. You can do that by first starting to check what the products you buy are made of and what they precisely contain. Focus on buying eco-friendly products, which are also economical, and save the planet from global warming.
Eco-friendly products are made from organic ingredients and don’t cause damage to the environment. So, follow some of our tips for becoming a hero by simply living a green lifestyle.
Check what the products are made of
You must search for companies that evaluate their products and don’t use harmful ingredients. Such companies are usually successful and for that reason their prices are economical. If the products consist of BPA (bisphenol A), just leave it back on the shelf or remove it from your wish cart right away. BPA is a chemical that contaminates the water and Earth, which means it’s too dangerous for the environment.
Just like with BPA, avoid buying products that are not paraben or perfume-free because they are harmful to your skin. Make it a habit to check the ingredients of the shampoos, cleansers, face masks, or make-up cleansing wipes, or any other makeup or skincare product, and your skin will glow.
Buy products made of bamboo fiber or wheat straw
Not only bamboo fiber and wheat straws are environmentally friendly materials, but they are self-friendly too. Wave goodbye to different plastic containers or your phone covers by reducing the use of plastic and cardboard by a considerable percentage. Stop buying those notebooks or frames that needed a whole tree down to get created. Instead, look for FSC certified products and help the world. Some companies, like Starbucks, have banned the use of plastic and their straws and cups are made of fiber/wheat. Find eco-friendly containers, lunch boxes, cups, or even towels made of fiber and wheat straw by surfing on Sobo Concepts or Crestline brands, because the change starts with YOU.
You can also find kitchen utensils at a discount that are FSC certified made of beech wood and hand-polished, by browsing through Kimbino’s digital leaflet and checking the latest deals on Flying Tiger’s catalog. You can find additional eco-friendly products at a discount since Flying Tiger cares highly about the environment, and is on a mission to make the world a better place and contribute to ecology by running their business.
Opting for eco-friendly products that you need to use daily would make you love cooking and eating at home even more by maintaining a pure conscience.
Find products that can be recycled
Make a difference today by searching for sustainable products. Reusable products would stop the spread of more plastic to the environment. Only 2% of plastic can be recycled, which practically means that a lot of plastic goes down the landfills. Plastic takes ages to dissolve, and in the meanwhile, it releases too many chemicals that contribute to global warming. That’s why you should search for reusable grocery bags, containers, or food wraps that are non-plastic.
Let your children play in the real world
User-friendly devices in one way or another have got our kids’ hearts. But, no matter how cool the games on the digital screens are, playing in the real world hits differently. Not only the toys and games you buy for your children are harmless for their eyes, but they also teach them how things are physically felt. So, go buy your kid a wooden dollhouse, a road tape, wooden puzzles, stacking boxes made of FSC certified materials and see the joy they will feel. We bet they will be more enthusiastic than crying over a level they can’t pass on.
