Leading A Sustainable Lifestyle?

Updated: Apr 14

This time of year is a good one to reflect on the qualities that give our lives more meaning and make a comitment to contribute towards a more sustainable society.

One single person might not be able to make a difference, but 25 million Australians just might, so what are you waiting for?

If you’re looking for practical ways to offset your environmental impact, or just want to experiment with a few good habits in 2021, here's a few simple things you can try at home xx

How Much Meat And Dairy Do You Consume?

If you eat meat every day, start with one Meat-Free day a week. For vegetarians, cut dairy a couple of days a week – the point is to just eat less animal products and more plants, no matter where you’re at right now.

If you can’t give up meat, at least find out where yours is coming from and buy from a local farmer using sustainable practices.

Switch your dairy milk for oat, soy, or almond milk. There are many different brands out there and they vary in texture and taste so keep trying until you find one you like.

Small Changes In Your Kitchen

Say goodbye to cling wrap – it's completely unnecessary! Store leftovers in containers. They keep food fresh and stack nicely in your fridge.

If you have the space for a full-size compost bin, great. If not, look into some small compost solutions like the Bokashi, and avoid sending it to landfill.

Opt for bamboo or metal kitchen utensils when yours need replacing.

Use machine washable cloths in your sink, and while you’re at it, replace your cleaning products and detergent with environmentally friendly products.

Tidy Your Bathroom Cabinet

Use up all those half empty tubes of skin care. If you have invested in a new face cream, finish your old one by using it on your body.

Replace your disposable razors with safety ones, your plastic toothbrushes with bamboo toothbrushes, those single use cotton pads with bamboo wash cloths.

Rethink Your Transport

Consider walking or riding your bike when travelling short distances.

Plan to use public transport when travelling further and use your free time to read a book, catch up with friends or just take time to think!

If youre heading out of town with friends for the weekend, carpool if you can.

When you’re travelling short distances, think about driving or catching the train instead of flying. If you have to fly remeber to offset your emissions.
